The CSIO5* Nations Cup in St. Gallen in images

Monday, 02 June 2014
The smile on Peder Fredricson's face says it all. Peder had one of only two double clear rounds in the Nations Cup in St. Gallen riding the lovely H&M Sibon to help Sweden finish third. All photos by World of Showjumping.
The other double clear round came from Spain's Sergio Alvarez Moya who was on fire this weekend aboard Zipper. The Spanish team finished second in the Nations Cup.
 One who impressed was 5* Nations Cup debutant Spencer Roe who on Wonder Why - a horse he has had since it was a youngster - only collected two time penalties over the two rounds, displaying brilliant riding.
 Robert Whitaker also did a great job for the British team, with a clear round the first time around and a single time penalty in the second - riding Catwalk IV.
Anchor man Guy Williams was clear in the first round on Zaire for Great Britain, and when Daniel Neilson, Roe and Whitaker all went clear on the fences in the second round victory was secured before Williams entered the ring.

The Spanish team was just one tiny penalty behind Great Britain - as the time allowed was what separated the top two teams in St. Gallen. Here's Eduardo Alvarez Aznar who collected two time penalties over the two rounds on Rico Revel.

Got to love this horse; Darius is not only cool-looking, he jumps fantastic. With Manuel Fernandez Saro the 11 year old gelding had one time penalty in each round.

 Emma Emanuelsson and Titan waiting at the in-gate as the Swedish rider prepares herself for the second round. And with only one time penalty to add to her first round score of five, Emma contributed to a Swedish climb and third place.

As did Niklas Jonsson and Caral - who after ten faults in the first round, only recorded a time penalty in the second.

 High five for Ukraine's Katharina Offel, who on the lovely Charlie keeps on bringing in the clears. Kathi had a single time penalty in the first round and then a great clear in the second.
 Good reason to smile for Switzerland's Jane Richard Philips who after eight faults in the first round came back strong to be clear in the second on Pablo de Virton.
 Kevin Staut also jumped a clear round on Reveur de Hurtebise HDC, but it did not help the French team to the top after too many faults in the first round. They eventually ended 7th.
 A time penalty in the first round and a pole down in the second was the result for home heros Steve Guerdat and Nino des Buissonnets who ended fourth with the Swiss team.
 Cassio Rivetti in full focus before he enters the ring to produce a clear round in the second part of the competition for Ukraine - aboard the stunning Vivant.
For 6th placed Belgium, Olivier Philippaerts was the best rider on Cabrio van de Heffink. After a great weekend in St. Gallen, Olivier was awarded as the leading rider of the show.
 Another one who impressed was Maureen Bonder who displayed some serious riding skills on Alex throughout the weekend. In the second round of the Nations Cup the pair collected only a time penalty.
 The Dutch team was a green one, and in the end they were on the bottom of the result list - but Johnny Pals and Vignet did a very good first round to collect only a time penalty.
