Nicola Philippaerts wins Saturday's biggest class at Sweden International Horse Show

Saturday, 29 November 2014

Nicola still has the chance to win a couple of more cars during the weekend. Photo by Jenny Abrahamsson.Nicola Philippaerts won the first car at Sweden International Horse Show in Stockholm, after being the fastest one in Saturday's 1,50 m class against the clock riding Quenzo de la Roque (Kannan x Jasmin), Nicola could take his new Volkswagen for a spin. Marlon Modolo Zanotelli, who was on fire yesterday and won both showjumping classes as well as a show class, had to see himself beaten with half a second. Marlon rode the nine year old mare Vera (Contender x Corrado II).

Third place went to Cameron Hanley with Dundee v. Dwerse Hagen (Caesar van de Helle x Brownboy) and fourth to home rider Johan Lundh with Miebello (Quite Easy x Cardento).

"I was lucky enough to be in the end of the class and could see Marlon ride. My horse is naturally fast but I still had to take some risks," Nicola said after his win. "It is a great show here and it is amazing that they can fill up the arena already in the first year and it is a perfect atmosphere."

Cameron was happy about the loud audience: "Personally for my horse it is good with the atmosphere, since he is a little lazy and wakes up a bit when the audience is cheering."

Cameron, who was out for a long time got the question about how he feels being back competing: "It is really unbelievable, I'm lucky just to be back doing what I love to do. A couple of years ago I had an injury and I didn't compete for two years and I thought my career was over and that I never would ride again. So every time I get back on a horse I just feel so lucky. I spend four month in the hospital and a year on crouches. Then things got better and better and when I started to ride a little bit it actually helped my whole physical condition. "

Later in the evening Peder Fredricson won the 1,40 m class with H&M Cash In (Cashandcarry x Corofino I) ahead of Jur Vrieling with Flash Dance v. Kalevallei (Kashmir van Schuttershof x Gottwald) and Niklas Arvidsson with Cobolt (Cyklon x Camaro M).
