carlos-hank-jr-los-angeles-masters-grand-slam-e2-stablesAfter a long, successful summer competing in Europe, E2 Stables was thrilled to be back in California this past week to participate in the inaugural Longines LA Masters. Only a short distance up the coast from our home base in San Diego, the event was truly first-class with both Eduardo Menezes (BRA) and Enrique Gonzalez (MEX) competing among the best show jumpers in the world. Quintol (Quintender x Cento ), Quilebo du Tillard (For Pleasure x Quat’Sous), and Arly jumped phenomenally and gained valuable experience at the CSI 5* level.

This year, E2’s clients stole the show. 14-year-old Carlos Hank Jr. made quite an impression after accumulating many coveted Longines LA Masters ribbons. After winning the Masters Grand Slam Trophy (1.30m) on Friday with Cedino K, he snatched a second victory the very next morning with a different horse (Contigo 27) in the Masters Grand Slam Trophy (1.35) class. Carlos Hank Gonzalez and Sari Hank also brought home some well-deserved prizes.
