Sam McIntosh has just finished a successful campaign in Spain on the Spring MET Tour taking out third place in the CSI3* Grand Prix on Sunday.

Riding Check In 2, Sam was one of six combinations that jumped clear in the first round to go through to a jump off.  Sam was then only one of three to jump clear in the jump off to take third place just 3 seconds behind the class winner Constand van Peesschen of Belgium.

Sam and her team have had a great 3 weeks in Olivia Nova and she couldn’t be happier.

“Estina was ultra-consistent picking up 3 top 5 placings from the 4 rounds she jumped. Then with Check In jumping 2 GPs for 8th in the first one and a fantastic 3rd in the 3 star over a tough WEG qualifying track along with jumping both GP double clear” Said McIntosh.

Sam has a couple of weeks at home before loading up to head south again.
