A fantastic score of 69.039% gave Gareth Hughes 3rd place and the highest placed Brit in the Grand Prix Special in Saumur. 

Riding Anne Keen's stunning dark bay gelding, Don Carissimo, the pair were kept from the top spot by 2.5% with Danish rider Anders Dahl taking the win with Selten HW. Representing France, Pauline Vanlandeghem took 2nd with Liaison. 

Don Carisimo is certainly proving to be something special, having recently been crowned Reserve Inter 2 Champion at the BD Nationals at Stoneleigh on 15th September. 

"My horses have never felt better," Gareth tells us. "My horses' health is obviously of utmost importance to me and Animalife's range of supplements enable me to feel confident that their nutritional needs are being met."

Wife Rebecca will soon be heading out to Biarritz CDI3* with Rubini Royale. We wish her the very best of luck!
