Quotes after the Rolex FEI World Cup in Helsinki

Monday, 24 October 2011

Pius Schwizer gets his second Rolex watch in one week. Photo by FEI/Mark Westermark.Pius Schwizer – winner; "I have quite a few good horses for this World Cup season."

Malin Baryard-Johnsson – third after almost falling off; "I was too fast going in. I landed on the left-hand side of the saddle when I came back down, and it was quite scary for a while! I struggled to get back on, trying to get my stirrups, but I said to myself 'no, don't circle and no, forget about the stirrups, just keep going and try to stay in the saddle over the last three fences!'"

Maikel van der Vleuten – runner-up; "I've had him [VDL Groep Verdi] for four years now and he's one of the best I've ever had. He's honest and always tries his best - no course is ever too high or too wide for him."

Nina Fagerström – best of the Finnish riders and fourth; "I always want to do well here in front of my family and my friends, but I didn't take too many risks - I preferred to finish with two clear rounds instead."

Kristian Nyman, President of the Helsinki Horse Show; "We had 48,000 spectators at our event this weekend and we are very pleased about that. This is also a great experience for our Finnish riders.”

Course designer Guilherme Jorge; "We had good footing and a great crew in the arena this weekend!"
