The pure athleticism in horse and rider is evident in this competition. In belle Paris, 19 year old Bertram Allen (IRL) made history as the youngest rider to win a Longines Global Champions Tour Grand Prix since its inception, doing it in spectacular style after an intense five-contender jump-off. With his 17 year old chestnut stallion, Bertram stormed to the win with an unbeatable time of 37.32s. Ranking leader Luciana Diniz (POR) took second place with the brilliant Fit For Fun 13, and extended her 36 point lead over Scott Brash (GBR) to finish the Grand Prix with 218 points, now 44 points ahead. It was a double Irish podium as Darragh Kenny (IRL) took the third place… We also caught up with Bertram earlier in the weekend, plus took a closer look at the high tech veterinary welfare that is part of our Tour.
