The Norman, who was the first double clear in the class, went into the lead and held on to his pole position!  With Brazyl de Mezel, the rider made light of the fences and the time before an enthusiastic audience.


This Sunday thirty-six competitors took part in the HUBSIDE JUMPING de VALENCE’s 4* Grand Prix. The sun was shining, the grandstands were packed and the audience was enthusiastic.  And rightly so!The first round, designed by France’s Grégory Bodo, was a technical one, but was “built with the horses in mind” as Philippe Rozier, the French team gold medallist at the Rio Olympics, highlighted during the course walk.  Number 4 which was a plank was undoubtedly decisive in the class and alone was knocked down by thirteen riders. The time allowed was also played a significant role, penalising Ireland’s Stephen Moore, who had a superb clear round in terms of jumping with Albert K, but unfortunately was too slow when he crossed the finish line. France’s Mégane Moissonnier with the powerful Cordial and Argentina’s José Maria Larocca (Jr) with Finn Lente suffered the same fate.France’s Cédric Hurel and his fantastic Fantasio Floreval Z, who are in great form this season, got the ball rolling with the first clear round. Jeanne Sadrann, the young French lady rider and Vannan immediately followed suit, and thus ensured that there would be a jump-off. It appeared that there would then be a series of clear rounds as Normandy’s François-Xavier Boudant and Brazyl du Mezel also qualified for the jump-off…But the first round wasn’t that easy…In the end, ten combinations managed to jump clear and obtain their ticket for the jump-off. France, Colombia, Portugal and Great Britain: the battle for victory was going to be very close considering the level of the riders competing. Cédric Hurel and Fantasio Floreval Z, who had the difficult task of going first in this second part of the competition, had every reason to be pleased with their result: 4 faults in a time of 34:37, and a seventh place in the overall line-up. This set the tone, and opened the door to a host of possibilities. As there’s no such word as can’t in French, Normandy’s François-Xavier Boudant had the first double clear with Apache d’Adrier’s grandson in a time of 34:36, going into the lead provisionally and suspense was at its height. Titouan Schumacher and his Atome Z unsettled the audience, as well as the leading combination, going over the finish line faster...but knocking down the final fence into the bargain!W

I’m delighted as it’s my first 4* Grand Prix win. I had already won some CSI 3* shows, but it’s my first CSI 4* victory. Brazyl du Mezel has been at my stables for three years now and has constantly progressed. He’s incredible and jumps clear round after clear round. This weekend he jumped five rounds and was clear in all five. I was definitely luckier than Titouan Schumacher in the jump-off as he was a bit faster, and Rodrigo Giesteira Almeida, the Portuguese rider, set off really quickly but messed up his last bend. But that’s the way it goes. I rode at the beginning of the jump-off. I had a good round and I also put pressure on the others which led them to make mistakes. It worked for me this time! Before the prize-giving ceremony, I said to John Whitaker, who was second, that it was great to win, but all the more so ahead of a legend like him! I already came to the HUBSIDE JUMPING de VALENCE a few years ago, and I’m a regular at the HUBSIDE JUMPING Grimaud-Gulf of Saint-Tropez. I was already fourth in a CSI 4* Grand Prix there. I’ve been lucky, I’ve had quite a good season. I recently sold one of my best horses, GFE Cicave du Talus, so it’s always hard to end up with one horse less. Now I’ll have to train other ones. I also hope I’ll find other ones. I don’t have any immediate goals, my current priority is to continue to allow my horse to progress.  I think I’ll go back to the HUBSIDE JUMPING Grimaud-Gulf of Saint-Tropez a bit in September and October. Sadri Fegaier organises very high-level shows, so It’s super to be able to compete in them.

Today I won with my horse Louis Vuitton 22. He was amazing and jumped really well. I saw that my friend, Matis Jones, who went just before me, was really fast, so I gave it my all. Normally, we say “good things always come in threes”, so I thought maybe with a bit of luck, maybe good things would come in fours! And it worked! So I’m really happy. I think that I was successful this weekend because all my friends and family were here to support me.  And I would like to say a big thank you to Sadri Fegaier for organising the HUBSIDE JUMPING de VALENCE, a magnificent show in a superb ring.

I’m delighted. I was second in the CSI 2* Grand Prix with the dam of GL events Dorai d’Aiguilly, a few years ago here at the HUBSIDE JUMPING de VALENCE. Today the daughter has got even with her mother. I took advantage of her galloping stride and that made the difference in the jump-off. She’s a mare that is only eight but she is really promising. I’m over the moon!

CSI 4* - 1.45m class - Simon Delestre (FRA)
Chesall Zimequest is a really experienced horse who really knows the score. He has had a really good season this year. When he got here last week, he had had a six-week break, in particular because of the Olympics, so he didn’t really have a competition mindset ...But this week he jumped in two classes and was second and first. He has been incredibly regular this year. I’m really delighted that he is still in such great shape at sixteen-years-old. Soon he’ll be going to the HUBSIDE JUMPING Grimaud-Gulf of Saint-Tropez or to Rome with Hermes Ryan.


look forward to seeing you at the HUBSIDE JUMPING Grimaud-Gulf of Saint-Tropez, whose HUBSIDE FALL TOUR will begin on 9 September!
