After the jog… (which of course Fig flew through) there was not that much time to hang around before the showjumping as Luhmuhlen prefers to get the pesky 5* L out if the way before the real fun begins with the CI4*S which is the German Championships and the main reason the locals flock to the showground.
Lying 11th after dressage and 4th after cross country on your 5 star debut is pretty cool. To then jump a clear round and move up to 2nd by just a couple of points is pretty amazing! Tom jumped an assured and fault free round and made Fig look like he had been at this level for a while… I can only assume that owner Barbara Cooper must be both proud and delighted!
It was a great result for the whole team and wholeheartedly deserved. Tom is so, so tantalisingly close to winning his first 5 star….it really is ‘when’ now, not ‘if’!
