Brit Sarah Cohen and her seasoned campaigner Treason were the first combination ever to beat the clock in the CIC3* at Arville in Belgium, finishing in 6th place when a rail down in the show jumping prevented a podium finish for them Sarah commented..
“He was on cruise control the whole way round – I’m not sure I even took a pull to be honest. I did think more would make the time, but he is an absolute star.”
Leg 3 Winner Christopher Burton (AUS) and Polystar I were the only other combination to avoid the time penalities by crossing the finish line on the optimum time of 6 minutes exactly.
"He’s a fast horse and he loves galloping so I figured there was no point in two of us pulling!” Said Burton after his win.
You can see both Sarah and Chris at our next leg at the St James' Place Barbury International Horse Trials in Wiltshire, UK (7th & 8th July) - will they beat the clock there too?
