Lexington, KY - New Jersey show jumping rider Jessica Siuda stormed to victory in Belgium to score her first career Grand Prix win at the CSI** 's-Gravenwezel (Belgium) aboard Robin.
Siuda, 25, was one of three (out of 43 starters) to go forward into the jump-off, she then was the first rider in the ring for the second round. Siuda and Robin put in a clean and very fast round and the other combinations in the jump-off had rails down trying to catch the pair.
Robin, a 10-year-old KWPN gelding, is owned by the Siuda Family’s Windward Farm which is based in Milford, NJ. Robin was based with US Olympian Peter Wylde in Europe while Siuda was finishing her degree at Lafayette College in the spring.
