Elien wins the CSI2* Grand Prix at the Spring MET 2018

March 18, 2018, 7:31 p.m. – back to all news

Kathi had a great week as the outdoor season kicked off at the Spring MET 2018. 

Elien showed top form, placing third in Friday's 1.45m Longines Ranking class after a double clear round and then went on to win Sunday's 1.45m Grand Prix designed by Louis Konickx - also counting for the world ranking - after a blistering fast jump-off against thirteen other horses. This was Elien's first international Grand Prix victory, and Kathi was over the moon with how she jumped.

Amarit was also clear in all his three classes, placing fourth in Thursday's 1.45m class counting for the Longines Ranking before he got to jump two smaller classes. 

Hearst was also a star, and took the victory in Wednesday's 6-year-old class after a very fast jump-off. After going clear in both his opening classes, Kathi opted not to jump him in Thursday's class. Also Chaning Tatum jumped clear in both his 7-year-old classes, finishing 8th in Wednesday's class. 

Balou Z, Con Air Z and Etna also all jumped clear rounds as did Cornet's Lady with Carmen Christiaansen in the saddle.
