Experience was the key in the CSI4* Grand Prix at Hubside Jumping in Grimaud, France which brought together the best riders in the world and also concluded four weeks of competition in the South of France.

Three experienced riders finished on the Hubside Jumping’s final podium for this summer season. Belgium’s Niels Bruynseels was the winner riding Gancia de Muze (Malito de Reve x Nimmerdor) – finishing 0.26 seconds ahead of Ireland’s Denis Lynch with Cristello (Numero Uno x Voltaire). Italy’s Emanuele Guadiano and Chalou (Chacco-Blue x Baloubet du Rouet) finished third – 0.47 seconds behind the winning time. The best French rider was Edward Levy who ended fifth with Uno de Cerisy (Open Up Semilly x Siego) ahead of Brazil’s Marlon Zanotelli and VDL Edgar M (Arezzo VDL x Marlon) in fourth. 

“I know that my mare Ganzia de Muze can be very fast, but faced with a jump-off with riders and horses of this level, it was no easy matter,” Bruynseels laughed. “I tried to take all the risks possible. I was rather concerned when I saw that some riders were getting dangerously close to my time. I wasn’t guaranteed to be the winner... But no words are strong enough to describe Gancia. She really is an incredible mare. She has won everything in her life and even the long break due to the lockdown didn’t hinder her round. These weeks at the Hubside Jumping in the South of France have been very positive. Everything is perfect here: The facilities on offer to the horses and riders are really outstanding. I really want to praise the organisation for what it is doing for the sport and thank the whole team!”
