Behind the scenes in the Rolex Grand Prix in Den Bosch

Wednesday, 16 March 2016
CSI5* Indoor Brabant 2016

Nerves, stress, happiness, relief: World of Showjumping went behind the scenes during the jump-off in the Rolex Grand Prix in Den Bosch. Jos Verlooy and Sunshine were first to go in the jump-off and they pulled off a great clear round - ending fourth. Here Sunshine with his groom Jenny. Photos (c) Jenny Abrahamsson.

Willem Greve with Carambole N.O.P.
Willem Greve pulled off a fantastic jump-off with Carambole N.O.P. that was very fast, and it looked like it would be heard to beat. In the end only two horse-and-rider combinations managed to be faster.

Netherland's Chef d'Equipe Rob Ehrens had a busy time during the jump-off with four riders in it. He was giving all his riders some last advice before entering the ring - here Gert Jan Bruggink with Vampire.

Jur Vrieling
It wasn't Jur Vrieling's jump-off, but VDL Zirocco Blue N.O.P. still deserved a treat.

Hans-Dieter Dreher
Hans-Dieter Dreher was the first one that managed to be faster than Willem Greve, with his Cool and Easy. So after his round, Hansi flew off to take a look at the ones riding after him.

Gudrun Patteet
Full focus for Team Patteet (looking good Joost!).

Simon Delestre
Simon Delestre is the new number one on the Longines Ranking, but in the Rolex Grand Prix he had to settle for the fifth place after being the fastest of the four faulters.

Marcus Ehning
The winners - Marcus Ehning and Cornado NRW - on their way into the ring.
