Olympian Jill Henselwood shines in Bromont

Bromont, July 17, 2014 – Olympic rider Jill Henselwood won the first international show jumping event in Bromont today July 17 with her mount Bolero HX in an unbeaten time of 40.95 seconds.

Welcome to Bromont!

For this FEI (Fédération Équestre Internationale) event, FEI4* Brazilian course designer Guilherme Jorge prepared a course with 12 obstacles for 15 efforts, with six rider/horses duos acceding to the jump-off including, Canadian Jill Henselwood and Kelley Roibinson, American Derek Braun and Denise Wilson, Russian Liubov Kochetova as well as 2013 World Cup winner, Ireland’s Andrew Bourns.

Jill Henselwood is the first out on for the jump-off with Bolero HX, an 8 year-old Dutch half-blood. The pair establishes the time to beat with a clear round in 40.95 seconds. None of the following 5 teams will be able to take her out of first place. Andrew Bourns on Bart C came close to second place, but a bar down left them in fourth. American rider Denise Wilson, competing in Bromont for the first time, took second place with Quidam’s Hero, while Canadian rider Kelley Robinson and her mount Enzo, rounded up the Top 3.
