Bosty had his own way of getting Qoud'Coeur de la Loge's attention when they entered the arena.

The double of Liverpools
The double of Liverpools causes a lot of problems every year. The combination itself is tricky, but several of the horses also spook at the lake next to it.

Henrik von Eckermann and Gotha FRH
Like many others Henrik von Eckermann had trouble at the double of Liverpools and decided to retire after this fence.

Rolf-Göran Bengtsson and Clarimo Ask
Rolf-Göran Bengtsson's Clarimo Ask jumped great until he spotted the lake by 10 a and b.

Sergio Alvarez Moya with G&C Quitador Rochelais.
Sergio Alvarez Moya and his relatively new ride G and C Quitador Rochelais is a combination to look out for. They produced a super round, but at fence nine Quitador Rochelais spooked as he spotted the lake. The top pole stayed intact, but the red ball fell as they nearly jumped outside the fence.

Sergio Alvarez Moya and G And C Quitador Rochelais
Then at the Liverpools, Quitador Rochelais thought it was safer to jump the flowers and stay as far away from the water as possible.

Philipp Weishaupt and Chico
Another horse to open the class with impressive jumping was Chico - ridden by Philipp Weishaupt. Then at the open water at number 7 it was over and out as Chico spotted a crocodile or two.

Patrice Deleveau and Carinjo HDC
Patrice Deleveau and Carinjo HDC had four faults in the first round and then two poles fell the second time around.

Simon Delestre and Ryan des Hayettes
While Simon Delestre and Ryan des Hayettes produced three clear rounds to end third!
