Jessica Mendoza in top shape on Spirit T

Jessica Mendoza is currently one of the top talents in Great-Britain. The 17 year old girl already performs amongst the best riders of the world. At CSI Beervelde, a very strong attended three star graded event in Belgium, she won the GP qualifier on Friday. She was faster than Patrik Spits and Lauren Hough in a 1.45m class against the clock. Last weekend she performed in Saint-Lo, France, where she placed sixth in the Grand Prix. Last month she helped Great-Britain winning the silver team medal at the European Championship for juniors in Vejer de la Frontera. In all of these strong results, she was guided by her lovely AES mare Spirit T, a daughter of the AES approved stallion Tornado (Darco), the former GP stallion of Michael Whitaker, who is owned by the Gillespie Brothers of Greenairs.
