KILDARE dressage star Judy Reynolds and the Joe and Kathleen Reynolds-owned gelding Vancouver K continued their hugely impressive recent run of form, by claiming a sixth place finish in today’s (Thursday) FEI World Cup Grand Prix at ‘s-Hertogenbosch in The Netherlands.
Drawn ninth to go of the 18 starters, Reynolds and Vancouver K took the lead with a typically polished performance, which saw the judges award a score of 74.217%. A tightly-packed final leaderboard, saw less than three percentage points separate the top six at the finish. Germany’s Isabell Werth scored yet another win with Emilio when scoring 77.196%, just ahead of Denmark’s Daniel Bachmann Andersen who finished second with Blue Hors Zack with a score of 76.109%.
Judy Reynolds and Vancouver K will be in action again on Saturday in the Freestyle To Music in ‘s-Hertogenbosch, where they are aiming to gain enough points to make it into the FEI World Cup Final which takes place in Gothenburg (SWE) in April.
