Penelope Leprevost was smiling from ear to ear after Flora de Mariposa jumped double clear in the Longines Grand Prix of La Baule to end 2nd. The extraordinary mare was also double clear in Friday's Nations Cup, showing fantastic consistency. All photos (c) Tiffany van Halle for World of Showjumping.

He gave it his everything, and it worked out! Jerome Guery never gives up and never quits, and despite a disappointing Nations Cup performance with Papillon Z he came back strong to win the Grand Prix with the stunning Grand Cru van de Rozenberg.

Another one that impressed was Margie Goldstein-Engle, who rode double clear in the Nations Cup and in the Grand Prix on Royce - and probably made a big climb on Robert Ridland's Olympic short-list.

Steve Guerdat's mare Bianca jumped incredible, and was very unlucky to have a pole down in the first round.

It was a good weekend for Gudrun Pateett, who was in the ribbons again and again also placing 6th in the Grand Prix with Sea Coast Pebbles Z.

Bertram Allen again delivered a solid performance, riding Romanov to a clear first round. An unlucky pole fell in the jump-off, but the two still placed 9th.

No scope, no hope! The flying Fibonacci jumped a beautiful double clear to end third with Meredith Michaels-Beerbaum.

Cedric Angot made it to the jump-off as one of three home riders, and finished 10th with Saxo de la Cour.

Lucy Davis and Barron are back in top form, and after doing a double clear in Friday's Nations Cup the two jumped clear again in the Grand Prix but with four faults in the jump-off they had to settle for 8th.

Con Dios III making a real stretch over the Longines oxer in the triple combination with Rene Lopez in the saddle. The two finished off in 7th place after one rail down in the jump-off.
