Sean Jobin & Coquelicot VH Heuvelland Z Rise to Top  in $150,000 IDA Development Grand Prix CSI3*

Featured competition for the first week of the 2023 Ocala Summer Series reached a pinnacle as twenty-three athletes representing eight nations met under the lights in the WEC Grand Arena. Exhibitors and equine enthusiasts alike flocked to the stands at World Equestrian Center – Ocala (WEC) to watch as the elite group of athletes contested FEI Level III course designer Andy Christiansen’s (ECU) technically set tracks. At the end of a seven-horse jump-off, the crowd applauded Canada’s Sean Jobin and Coquelicot VH Heuvelland Z (Catoki x Cassini II) as they stood atop the podium for the $150,000 IDA Development Grand Prix CSI3*.

A historically quick group of riders returned for the short course, with Kaitlin Campbell (USA) of SWS Training & Sales in Temecula, California, coming back with the first of her two qualified mounts.

Campbell spoke on her first experience showing at WEC – Ocala, “Andy Christiansen has done a super job this week. The horses have all been jumping better every time they go in. This is my first time ever showing at WEC. The crowd is super and when you walk into the ring the horses really feel the energy. For my horses that like to be pumped up a bit, they definitely see the crowd and they jump a bit higher. I think it is going to be a really fun few weeks here.”

Aboard her newest mount, Diacco-Blue (Diarado x Chacco-Blue), Campbell posted an instant double clear, setting the tone for the rest of the challengers.

In 41.78 seconds, the 13-year-old Oldenburg gelding ultimately landed Campbell the third-place position and established a bright future at their third horse show together.
