Photos by Jenny Abrahamsson.It was the two first riders in Thursday’s 1.50 class in Falsterbo that set the target, and became impossible to catch in Falsterbo. As first to go in the 58 riders class, Ludo went in on Challenge V. Begijnakker (Celano Z x Palestro V. Begijnakker) and rode an incredible round over the twelve fence track – that included a combination at 5a and b and a triple combination (oxer-vertical-vertical) at 10abc – crossing the finish line on the time of 64.44. None of those to come could catch the Belgian rider, no matter their efforts.

Katharina Offel was runner-up on Be Once Z. Katharina Offel – second to go – came closest on the amazing B Once Z (Baloubet du Rouet x Lavaletto) at 66.72 seconds. This nine year old mare is really something special, and shows great promise for the future under the Ukrainian rider. Another Ukrainian rider, Cassio Rivetti, also did very well to finish third on the beautiful Niack de L’Abbaye (Diamant de Semilly x Rocky du Carel). Cassio came in as number 49, and rode an efficient round on the stallion with a time of 68.44 pushing Leon Thijssen down to fourth on Haerthago (Heartbreaker x Carthago Z). The class also served as a qualifier for Sunday's Grand Prix.
