Frank Schuttert and the 10-year-old gelding Go Easy de Muze (Vigo d´Arsouilles x For Pleasure) continued their fantastic form on Sunday, and went to the top in the CSI3* VDL Groep Grand Prix in Eindhoven. The newly-crowned Dutch Champions are in great shape at the moment, and continued their winning streak on home soil in this 1.55 competition that had some of the world's best riders lined up to battle it out for the victory. 

The 22-year-old rider, who works for Jos Lansink in Belgium, was smiling from ear to ear after his victory that earned him a Mini Cooper - which turned out to have a surprising amount of legroom for Schuttert who is one of the tallest on the circuit with his nearly two meters. 

"Go Easy de Muze is in great shape," said Frank Schuttert after his win. "I think we have shown that winning the Dutch Championships was no accident. The way he jumps is amazing. It is an honor to ride him." As to whether or not he would get to keep the Mini Cooper, Schuttert laughed; "Everything goes to Jos!"

Competitors did not give up after the example set by Schuttert, but many saw a rail fall in their attempt to catch him. Closest to Schuttert came Italian rider Lorenzo de Luca who was half a second away with the 12-year-old Ensor Litrange LXI (Nabab De Reve x Mr Blue), which is co-owned by Schuttert's boss Jos Lansink.

Dutch rider Johnny Pals finished third with a very well jumping Fernando (For Pleasure x Corrado I), a little over a second behind his compatriot. The top five in the fifteen horse jump-off was completed by home riders too, courtesy of Ruben Romp on Audi´s Teavanta Ii C Z ( Treasure x Ahorn) and Remco Been on Holland Vd Bisschop (Heartbreaker x Libero H).
