IRELAND’S Judy Reynolds racked up an impressive set of results at this weekend’s international dressage tour at Vejer de La Frontera in Spain.

Finishing on Sunday with a third place and 68.98 per cent in the Grand Prix Special, the Kildare rider also added a Grand Prix second with her Dutch-bred gelding ‘Remember’ on Saturday on a score of 69.25, and a win in Thursday’s Intermediare II with 67.5.

A delighted Reynolds said afterwards : “This has been a great start to my 12 month campaign. Between now and next March I will be fighting not just for Olympic qualification but also an Olympic starting place, so the scores in that regard are even more important than the results. I hope the next couple of weeks here will be just as good.”

The 29 years old from Kilteel near Naas, (who competed in the World Equestrian Games two weeks after an appendectomy) lists her ambitions as ‘ to compete at the Olympics ‘ and to ‘be successful’

In Spain, Reynolds also picked up an eight place in the afternoon event , with her young horse ‘Vancouver’ in the Small Tour Intermediare I.
