WoSJ Exclusive; What about the World Cup Jens?

Monday, 29 October 2012

Jens and Lunatic are heading for the final in Gothenburg. Photo by Jenny Abrahamsson.We have asked some of the World Cup riders about their thoughts on this World Cup season, and first out is the Swedish rider Jens Fredricson.

How important is the Rolex FEI World Cup for you this season?

"With the final in Gothenburg this season it is really important for Swedish showjumping. And it would be fantastic to ride a World Cup final. But I know that it is really hard and that we have very few spots at the qualifications. Earlier on the nation that organized the final had an extra spot for a non-qualified rider, but as far as I know that's not the system anymore. So if no Swedish rider qualifies, none of them will ride the final which is a shame."

Which horses are you planning on using for the World Cup?

"Lunatic. And maybe London Calling will do a qualification."

At which of the World Cup shows can we hope to see you?

"I am doing Oslo and Helsinki and then I will go to London and Mechelen. So it is a good start on the season. After the new year the Swedish riders that have collected points will share the rest of the World Cup legs."
