Sporting competition will take a break until after the summer, bidding farewell with the Ruta Condal competition that included two 4 and 5-star National Jumping Competitions. Over the course of two weekends, from July 15th to 17th and July 21st to 23rd, some of the best national riders gathered at the Real Club de Polo de Barcelona Olympic arena. If the first weekend had a name it would be Mariano Martínez Bastida, who not only dominated the Grand Prix with the magnificent "Quicksilver", but also received various other outstanding classifications throughout the event. The CSN5* was especially exciting thanks to Jesús Torres’s triumph with "Orphee du Breche" at the Grand Prix. Jesús dedicated his victory to his brother Cristino, recently deceased, in an emotional tribute.
The next sporting event at the Barcelona club will be the CSIO Barcelona from October 5th to 7th.
