Mark Bluman won the 1.40m Grand Prix at The Ridge

LOXAHATCHEE GROVES, Fla.--Mark Bluman on Alme du Buisson Z won the $15,000 1.40m Grand Prix at The Ridge on March 14, beating a field of more than 40 competitors.

Mark Bluman on Alme du Buisson ZMark Bluman on Alme du Buisson ZWith Week 10, running March 15-19, comes more show jumping plus two extra days of weekend competition at The Ridge's world-class facility just outside of Wellington.

Combining a unique mix of hospitality, exceptional amenities, world-class designers, judges, footing, and jumps, and with the goal of securing an amazing training and show experience for horses, The Ridge at Wellington Groves gives the feel of spring training for hunters and jumpers!

Bluman on Alme du Buisson Z was the fastest over the Grand Prix course, set by FEI designer Ivan Tagle of Argentina.

The first round track included multiple bending lines, roll backs, and double to oxer combinations that resulted in 12 first round clears.

The jump-off featured a very similar track but with adjacent jumps.

Alme du Buisson Z's fast round under Bluman couldn't be beaten, despite a number of attempts.

Bluman's time of 32.281 was, amazingly, a full six seconds faster than that of Jordan Coyle on Picador, who finished clean in 38.323 to place second.

It's very seldom a class is won by such a large margin as six seconds.

Kaitlyn Williams on Cassio Melloni finished third in 38.347.
