Coyle has been in stunning form in both the Under 25 and senior classes in Florida since the Winter Equestrian Festival began back in January. He was one of eight riders to make it into today’s (Sunday) U25 Grand Prix jump-off and a double clear round in 39.94 seconds with the Susan Grange-owned Simba De La Roque, saw them take the winners prize of $16,500. They finished over a second ahead of Britain’s Jessica Mendoza riding Horst Van De Mispeleare, while American rider Shawn Cassidy took third place on the podium with Vanilla.

Co Derry’s Daniel Coyle continued his incredible recent run of form, by scoring a runner-up finish in the $216,000 four-star Grand Prix at the Winter Equestrian Festival in Florida in the early hours of this morning. Drawn second last to go in a five horse jump-off, Coyle guided Ariel and Susan Grange’s 11-year-old mare Cita to a clear round in 43.85 seconds against the clock. This left them just over a second behind Chilean winner Samuel Parot and Atlantis who crossed the line clear in 42.52, while Margie Engle (USA) and Royce finished third. Coyle began the WEF circuit riding Cita for the first time and won the $75,000 Rosenbaum Mollengarden Grand Prix in week one. The pair then spent the rest of the winter getting to know each other and developing their partnership. “Since the first Grand Prix here, I changed my ride a little bit on Cita,” Coyle
