On Sunday, Niels Bruynseels (BEL) took his second Grand Prix win in two days at Hubside Jumping, in Grimaud, France. After winning the CSI3* Grand Prix on Saturday, Bruynseels continued his winning ways and took the top honours in the CSI5* Grand Prix on Sunday. Riding his super-mare Gancia de Muze (Malito de Reve x Nimmerdor), Bruynseels secured the victory after crossing the finish line in the jump-off in 39.70 seconds. 

Jos Verlooy (BEL) and Igor (Emerald x Nabab de Reve) took the runner-up position in 40.28 seconds and was followed by Alberto Zorzi (ITA) with Vauban du Trio (Nervoso x Desir du Chateau) in 40.37 seconds. Fourth place went to Denis Lynch (IRL) with Cristello (Numero Uno x Voltaire) and Roger Yves Bost (FRA) ended as the best home rider when taking the fifth place riding Sangria du Coty (Quaprice Bois Margot x Muguet du Manoir). 

“Gancia always knows what to do and she likes winning," Bruynseels commented. "All I have to do is ride well! She jumped really well again today, and I really felt that she jumped this course and this jump-off very easily and enthusiastically. Gancia is naturally very quick and she’s very experienced. She knows that it’s the Grand Prix and she tries to do everything possible to be the best. We go back a long way together. We have a really special bond. In the first round, I didn’t really look at the other riders. I don’t really base myself on the others when I am riding Gancia as she isn’t like any other horse. I know how I need to ride my round as soon as I walk the course."

"She’s a mare with a lot of character. When she's at home, she likes to stay on her own, quietly. She's not very keen on working on the flat, so we take her outside a lot. My team and I try to do everything for her on a daily basis. We do everything possible to make sure she's in the best condition. She’s a princess, the star of the stables and she knows it!" Bruynseels said.
