Former Taranaki eventing horse Gordon notched his first four-star completion in the Les Etoiles des Pau in France yesterday.

Gordon was a member of Matthew Grayling's Okato stable for a couple of years before being handed on to his rider Alice Montgomery - daughter of the horse's owner.

Gordon and Montgomery went clear in the showjumping, but picked up five time faults to finish on 90.5 and in 21st place of the 62 international combinations from 17 nations that started the competition.
