Colombo (SWB born 1994 by Eighty Eight Keys xx out of Colette by Concarneau-Le Capricore xx, breeder Tord Bonde) and Selena O’Hanlon (CAN) placed 3d in CCI***. “Our dressage was great,” said O’Hanlon who has been working with Canadian Olympic bronze medalist Gina Smith when she has been at home between competitions. “We have been turning up the volume for each test we have done recently. I’m sorry that I lost a second place finish by adding two jumping time penalties, but he was the only horse to not have any jumping faults on both cross country and show jumping, so I’m very pleased.”
