Cian in the money in Parma

Cian and his three horses performed well last weekend at the inaugural indoor international event in Parma, Italy. Cooper was double clear on the opening day in the 1.40m class to place 7th and jumped really well in the GP when just knocking one fence and having a time fault. Carolus Z really jumped out of his skin when taking runner up spot in Friday’s one round GP qualifier. Cian rode Nicole Walker’s talented 7 yr old gelding Saphir in the 1.35m classes and was double clear on Saturday.

Cian said afterwards, "This was a great show for my horses as a warm up for Olympia in London next month. There was a lot of atmosphere here and plenty to distract the horses, so it will stand to them later I'm sure."
