In second place, 7 year old Jerome rode his lovely little mare Prima Donna, also a criollo, Jerome´s Parents are both very active polo players Puansri Leah and Tansri Hamdan. Zain, like his talented equestrian and polo playing dad Peter Abisheganaden, did not let daddy down and led the school pony to finish third.
Lead Rein Bending Race Finals had little 5 year old Josef , Jerome´s brother and friend Noah, a very new rider that is certainly showing he has what it takes, in joint first place. Sweet smiling Chloe was close coming in third.
