Parot commented on the course which was set by Guilherme Jorge (BRA), who was a show jumping designers for the Rio Olympic Games and will also be designing courses at the 2019 Pan American Games: “The course designer is the best in the world. There were 50 horses in the class and all the riders are super,” said Parot. “The class was not an easy win, but today I got lucky. All the distances came up perfectly for [fences] one, two, and three, but you had to be careful at the last one,” explained Parot.

Parot piloted three horses in the class, with two advancing to the jump-off round. “With Atlantis, I entered to win. The second one [Thriller P], I just wanted to be clear and fast.” Atlantis is Parot’s own 2003 Zangersheide gelding (Andiamo x Royal Bravour L). Thursday’s win followed a first-place finish in the $25,000 Main Street Insurance Grand Prix at TIEC during Tryon Summer 2 competition, resulting in back-to-back wins in Tryon Stadium.

Hunt Tosh (Milton, Georgia) and the Douglas Wheeler-owned Sandman topped the Absorbine® Green Hunter 3’ Division to be crowned champion on Thursday of the Tryon Summer Series 3 at TIEC. Donald Sheehan (Maryville, TN) and the Kashmere Farms entry, Indian Ocean, earned reserve champion honors of the division.

 

While Tosh himself is not a newcomer to showing at Tryon, he shared that this was in fact Sandman’s first time competing at the facility: “He’s new; we just did the 3’ Greens for the first time last week in Aiken. We’ve shown him a couple times in the Baby Greens. He’s quite a nice horse. He’s been a lot of quality for us and he’s very good. We brought him to Tryon this week. It’s his first time here and he was champion!”

 

Following his performance in the Green Hunters, Sandman will get to relax for the rest of the week while Tosh continues to work: “That’s it for [Sandman] this week; he’s finished. We have a couple junior hunters, ponies and amateurs showing, and we hope to keep up the good luck!

 

“We love Tryon,” Tosh shared. “They do a great job here: the facility is amazing, the stabling is nice, the footing is great, and there are great restaurants. My daughter loves being here, and it’s a fun environment. We love being here.”
