Last week Cian headed north of Wellington to compete at Live Oak in Ocala with Carolus Z and Quidam's Cherie.
Cherie was third in the opening class and jumped her first world cup qualifier for just 5 faults. Carolus Z won a big class and these consistent results were enough to secure Cian the $10,000 leading rider prize.
Cian said afterwards "this was a super show and I know the horses enjoyed it as much as the riders! I was thrilled with both horses, especially Cherie. She was third in a big Grand Prix in Wellington a few weeks ago, but I wanted to come here to see how she was on grass, and - if anything - she was nearly better! I'm really looking forward to developing her over the summer”.
