Four Grand Prix classes were organized at our international show jumping competition on the first weekend of June in Bábolna. The rider of our stud, Mátyás Bertók and our Shagya-Arabian stallion, Shagya VII-3 won the VIP Tour class on Sunday.
The U25 Grand Prix was held first, on Saturday, with 135 cm obstacles. The first and second place went to Zoltán Lázár jun., since only he was clear in the jump-off with Barolo and Füles. The third place went to Csenge Ágoston and Cassiona D.L.
We listened to the Hungarian national anthem on the prize-giving ceremony of the VIP Tour on Sunday morning, after the victory of the rider of our stud, Mátyás Bertók and Shagya VII-3. The second place went to Péter Kollár and Freya S, and Petra Hajdú became third with Bognár Hamvas.
