Jessica’s former Grand Prix horse, Maquire, which is now named Sig Fairytale, performed well during the first day of the World Dressage Championships.

Representing Japan, Y. Kitai and Sig Fairytale scored 64% to place 24th at the half way point of the team competition.

Jessica and Chantal trained Maquire up to Grand Prix level within 5 years after which he was sold in 2007.

Jessica: “I’m very pleased to see that Maquire is doing so good! It’s great to see that he is still competing at Grand Prix level and that he and his rider could show their performance at the World Dressage Championships in Kentucky is just amazing! I´m really proud of him.”
