Show Jumping Results - Another Army Victory At Pontedera

THE ARMY EQUITATION SCHOOL riders completed the Irish romp through the CSI three-star event at Pontedera, Italy this afternoon (Saturday) with a decisive Grand Prix win by 25 yr old Longford-born Lt. David O'Brien, riding the Clover Hill stallion <Boherdeal Clover>.

The Army Lieutenant, who won the Gijon Grand Prix last year, was almost three seconds faster than his nearest rival, and completed a strong display of Irish talent at the Italian venue. Capt. Gerry Flynn won the Jump-Off class on Friday, and was Third in the 1m35 class later in the day, while O'Brien clocked up a Second and a Third on the same day.
