Cassiopeia Darnet & Don`T Touch Des 4 Vents Z Rise to the Challenge in the Prize Chateau d`Esclans
01-06-2018

Cassiopeia Darnet was the second to last rider to jump -and the last hope for a French win- in the 1.15m Prize Chateau d’Esclans jump-off round on Friday. She and Don'T Touch Des 4 Vents Z more than delivered, however, narrowly beating out Great Britain’s Imogen Beecroft in a nail-biting finish.

 

Nine riders were welcomed back for the second round, where Beecroft set the pace on Roscoe's Amour on a time of 39.33. But Darnet refused to concede, managing to shave more than a second off Beecroft’s time to finish on 37.78. France’s Claire Chaix was a close third with 39.42 seconds aboard Christmass 2.

 

At just six years old, the Zangersheide stallion Don'T Touch Des 4 Vents Z is showing plenty of promise. He and Darnet have only been paired for a couple of months, having already earned success together at the Cagnes-sur-Mer horse show in April.
