Rancorrado Takes Third Place In Leipzig World Cup

Cian had one of his best results with Rancorrado to date, with a third place in the World Cup Grand Prix at Leipzig, Germany. He said after the competition: "I'm absolutely delighted with the horse. It's probably our biggest result to date, and it doesn't get much more difficult than this level. The top field of horses and riders in the World Cup made it even more special."

Complete In Fourth Place At Leipzig

Cian and Complete took a very good fourth place in today's speed class at Leipzig. Cian said: "The class was pretty fast with less than a second between the top four. I feel that a run like this will stand to Complete if I get into a jump-off in a bigger class next week in Amsterdam."

Splendour Second In Leipzig's Opening Competition

Cian and Splendour went clear to take the second place at Leipzig's opening competition today, a 1m40 Table A Against the Clock.

Afterwards a delighted Cian said: " I'm thrilled with Splendour, he jumped great and as there were 123 horses in the class it was quite competitive! It always helps to have a good start at a show like this."
