San Miguel Allende, Mexico – October 31, 2021 – Bliss Heers (USA) had a fantastic week competing at the seventh leg of Major League Show Jumping, held last week during the Otomí Grand Prix CSI 5* & 2* at Otomí Residencial Hípico in San Miguel de Allende. After claiming a third-place finish in the $3,330,000 GNP Seguros Grand Prix CSI 5* the day before, the American conquered another podium finish, this time in the $725,000 Rosewood Grand Prix CSI 2*, concluding a week of consistent performances.
The American teamed up with Bridgeside Farms’ Christos for bronze honors once again. Heers and the 12-year-old bay Holsteiner (Cristo 5 x Linaro) matched the double clear of the eventual winners, Jordan Coyle (IRL) Boston Ask, completing their second performance in 42.62 seconds.
Coyle edged out runner up Jana Wargers (GER) and Chacco’s Lady 2 by less than two tenths of a second, registering a penalty-free jump-off effort in 40.23 seconds compared to the German’s final time of 40.40 seconds.
