In this revolutionary team competition and for the first time in the history of show jumping, top riders from different Countries competed united under the same Team in 19 stunning venues around the globe culminating in the ultimate showdown at the GC Playoff in Prague last weekend. Jane, competing under Cannes Stars flag aboard her wonderful gelding bay Clipper du Haut du Roy, did a brilliant and flawless clear round, one of the few clears of the first round of this technical and intense Final. Cannes Stars, qualified at the last venue for the final in Prague, made a phenomenal come back taking the lead after an extraordinary first round closed with only 1 point fault. The technical level, the big course and the intensity of the battle in the second round got some surprising results. With 3 riders per each team and no drop score, everything could happen and Cannes Stars closed this tough GCL Super Cup at the 4th place, a brilliant and unexpected result considering the 14th position of the team along the season. A great result and a wonderful motivation for next season !
In LGCT for the individual ranking Jane did a great job as well with her beautiful and powerful mare Kenia. The pair closed this leg in Prague with two 7th placements: the first one on Thursday in 145/155 class a/clock and the second one on Saturday in 150 class with jump-off!
