Mary riding her second Grand Prix horse wins the Pacific League Final World Cup Grand Prix Freestyle Saturday night to earn the four-time Olympian the single starting place available at the World Cup Final in Las Vegas in mid-April.
This will be Mary’s fifth apparence at a world cup final, after Mary represented Australia last year on Sancette, who is currently still in Europe. For Mary it was a nostalgic night as she used the same freestyle on her previous grand prix horse Limbo.
“It is quite a difficult freestyle. We had a few moments but basically I’m really happy with him, I’ve only had a short time with him since I’ve been back (from Europe) but he just keeps getting better and better each time.”
