Congratulations to our valued customer Keith Shore yesterday on the final day of competition at the Longines Royal International Horse Show.
Keith’s Third place was philosophical after coming close to being the first British winner of the Longines King George V Gold Cup since Ben Maher in 2010.
There were 46 starters in the King George, which forms the finale to the CSIO5* Longines Royal International Horse Show. Course designer Kelvin Bywater set a long, difficult track with 12 fences and 16 jumping efforts, and only four managed to jump clear in round one.
British hopes lay with Keith Shore, who was first to go in the jump-off. He set the pace with a time of 57.63sec on Mystic Hurricane, but one fence down left the door open for his three rivals to go ahead. “I don’t really think he should have had a fence down to be honest, but that’s horses and they do. It was only last night I knew I was going to jump in the class so to come third is very good,” he said.
Keith trains on our Propell surface at his training base in Cheshire, Andrews Bowen Propell is designed as a more cost effective waxed surface for indoor and outdoor arenas. It is suitable for home use for professional and amateur riders and ideal for livery yards and equestrian centres.
