After a very successful spring season, Doug Payne and Crown Talisman have made it to Chantilly, France ready for the Saumur CCI3* next weekend. Fresh off a win in the Jersey Fresh CIC3*, the pair has high hopes for an excellent finish in Tali’s first European trip.
Doug is not alone in representing the USA; Liz Halliday will also be there with Fernhill By Night. Liz had HHS Cooley also entered, however a foot bruise will keep him out of the competition. Saumur features the French course designer Pierre Michelet, who is responsible for the WEG track at Normandy later this year– hopefully they can gain some valuable intel for the rest of our US Team riders!
