Highlights from Falsterbo Derby

Wednesday, 19 July 2017
CSIO5* Falsterbo 2017

As any derby, the Falsterbo Derby is very demanding – with some spectacular fences and a long course. And this is how happy you get when clearing the course: Cian O'Connor on Copain du Perchet CH. All photos (c) Jenny Abrahamsson.

The very stylish Peder Fredricson with H&M Carat Desire ended 4th after having one down in the jump-off. How many riders have this position one stride after a huge over?!

The open water caused some problems - here Alison Robitaille with Serise du Bidou.
