Full focus in Rome - part one

Thursday, 29 May 2014
Tiffany Foster in full focus on her new ride Tripple X III in the Loro Piana Grand Prix in Rome.
 Without doubt one of the best riders in the world - Penelope Leprevost definetly had her focus right this weekend, as she was double clear on Flora de Mariposa in the Nations Cup and clear in the first round of the Grand Prix.
 As did Alexander Zetterman; the Swedish rider was second in the big class on Saturday, and fourth in the Grand Prix - both on Cafino. Zetterman was awarded with the Premio Master Fratelli D’Inzeo at the end of the show.
 Jumping-wise it did not go the right way for Malin Baryard-Johnsson and Baltimore, who had to leave the Grand Prix course without finishing it on Sunday - but the Swedish rider was nevertheless awarded with the Longines Prize of Elegance together with Filippo Moyersoen.
 Peter Charles on the other hand was in form in Rome, winning the 1.50 class on Friday and finishing 7th in the Grand Prix - in the latter with Murka's Odie de Frevent.
 Joe Clee on the beautiful Fento Chin S. Unfortunately for Clee, his Nations Cup horse Diablesse de Muze did not show good form and the British rider had to watch the Grand Prix from the sideline.
 Ben Maher has his eyes set on the next fence aboard Cella. Ben was clear in the first round of Friday's Nations Cup, but had one down in the second and and two down in the Grand Prix.
 The focus is definetly in the right place for Bassem Hassan Mohammed - who keeps on performing well on Primeval Dejavu. The couple had a single time penalty in the first round of the Nations Cup.
 After a Nations Cup that did not go quite according to plan for Daniel Deusser and Fyloe V. Claeyssenhof, the German rider got the nine year old gelding's focus back for the Grand Prix and rode a first clear round.
 One that definetly had the focus on being clear was Lorenzo De Luca, who brought the crowds to standing ovation for his determined first clear round in the Grand Prix on Elky van Het Indihof.
 Nicola Philippaerts goes from strenght to strength, and contributed big time to the Belgian Nations Cup win on Friday. Here he is seen riding Fantast C - a son of his father's former ride Winningmood.
They might have had one down in the Grand Prix, but the feeling that Nino Des Buissonnets and Steve Guerdat's next big win is just around the corner is there!
 World nr. one Scott Brash rode Hello Sanctos in the Nations Cup and the Grand Prix, were the two were clear in the first round of the Nations Cup.
Ferenc Szentirmai did a great job for the Ukrainian team - being clear in the second round of Friday's Nations Cup. Here seen in Saturday's 1.50 class on Corenso.
 Jeroen Dubbeldam is used to being focused on his job after years and years on the Dutch team, and he did not dissapoint in Zenith SFN's Nations Cup debut being clear in the second round and then ending up with a single time penalty in the Grand Prix.
Marie Hecart was the best lady rider in the Grand Prix on Myself de Breve.
