After winning two of the three Grand Prix classes at the Spring MET III in Oliva Nova, Spain, Kathi had a very good finish to the Tour during the last week of competition.

Hearst jumped a beautiful clear round in the 6-year-old final, his first 1.30m class, but unfortunately had an unlucky rail down in a very fast jump-off eventually placing 14th. Also Carmen and Cornet's Lady had a beautiful round in the 7-year-old final, the first 1.40m class for this talented mare, with only a light rail down. With Zanta Z and Costa Date, Carmen also jumped some very nice clear rounds during the last week of the Tour. 

Elien yet again impressed and jumped clear in all her three classes, placing 11th in Friday's 1.45m Grand Prix qualifier counting for the Longines Ranking and then jumping an impressive clear in her first ever three-star Grand Prix on Sunday. After three weeks of jumping, she was a bit empty in the jump-off and had two poles down but still placed 12th. Kathi could not be more pleased with Elien and her performances over the last months!

Following a month of fantastic results, Kathi now climbs 71 spots up on the latest Longines Ranking.
