Jos Lansink has a busy day when we arrive at his yard in Meeuwen, Belgium a Thursday afternoon. Still in his riding gear after numerous sessions on the horse back, he is now fully occupied with saying good bye to and welcoming clients, trying out possible new horses to add to his stables, helping out his riders as well as building jumps. Lansink – former World Champion, Olympic and European team gold medallist, as well as World Cup Champion – runs a big dealing yard and sports stable. There are over fifty horses in his barn, and three additional international riders next to Jos – nevertheless you cannot detect any stress in the stables. Perhaps it is due to the fact that most of the horses are turned out in the surrounding paddocks and fields unless they are busy being hacked out or flatted. Because as we are soon to discover as we sit talking on a cavaletti in the middle of Lansink's beautiful outdoor ring, Jos is all about the happiness of the horses.

Quotes after the Longines FEI World Cup in Oslo

E-mail Print PDF

JurStanding"It’s the first World Cup I win and also the first World Cup start for Zirocco," Jur told the press after his win in Oslo Photo by World of Showjumping. The winner Jur Vrieling on winning the opening leg of the Western European League Longines FEI World Cup; “It was really good. It’s the first World Cup I win and also the first World Cup start for Zirocco. A start like this is amazing. The course designers did a good job. It was heavy and technical enough, but it was not crazy. The horses did not have to stretch too crazy so it was a good start to the season. For me Zirocco jumped really good. I was a bit nervous to have Marco Kutscher behind me, he is my idol. I watched his first round and it was so beautiful, I knew he was going to beat me. But now when he was 0,7 seconds slower than me today I like him even more..”


Marco Kutscher on his plan for the jump-off going in last; “My horse Cornet’s Cristallo is very fast if he is in a jump-off. I saw the other jump-offs and they were going faster and faster. Jur was the only rider choosing the option to go on five strides down to the last oxer. My plan was to do that as well, but I came too close to the second last fence and I thought it would get too long so I decided to do the six strides instead. Either way I am really happy with my result because it is already a few months since I last could go to a press conference. It is a good start for me especially because I can not choose what World Cup shows I go to. Now I got some points and I will have the chance to get to ride more World Cups - so a good day for me.”
