The Furusiyya FEI Nations Cup in Falsterbo in pictures

Tuesday, 15 July 2014

Four Nations Cups for Spain this season - four double clear rounds. That's Sergio Alvarez Moya's record. Here on Zipper - who has been his partner in three of them. All photos by Jenny Abrahamsson.

 Wout-Jan van der Schans and Capetown continue to impress. In their Nations Cup debut the pair was double clear for the Netherlands.  Brianne Goutal also impressed on Nice de Prissey - riding a double clear for the US team. Alexander Zettermann did two great rounds on Cafino - being clear in the first, and having one down in the second - helping Sweden to runner-up position. Andre Thieme's Conthendrix was another one that impressed - with a single time penalty in each round he made light work of the five star Nations Cup. Jur Vrieling's Zirocco Blue VDL jumped a super first clear round, but had two down on the final line in the second round after getting frightened by one of the big umbrellas on the VIP. Douglas Lindelöw and Casello did everything right in the first round, and rode clear for Sweden. In the second round the pair had two down though. Katrin Eckermann showed some real girl power and did not touch a pole on Firth of Lorne! She was the best on the German team with a time fault in the first round and a clear in the second. The nine year old Fibonacci 17 showed what he is made of under Meredith Michaels-Beerbaum; this is a horse we will see a lot more of in the future. The anchors for Sweden; Peder Fredricson and the lovely HM Sibon rode a secure first clear round, and had one down in the second. Patrick Stühlmeyer's Lacan 2 continues to jump great - he was clear in the first round and had one down in the second for the German team that won. Rolf-Göran Bengtsson and Unita Ask jumped to a second clear round for Sweden after having two rails down in the first. Another one that is impressing is the 21 year old Spencer Roe and Wonder Why; clear in the second round for Great Britain.
