FEI World Breeding Jumping Championships 2016

It was a good day for the Irish! First Michael Pender took silver and bronze for the 5-year-old horses, then Gerard O'Neill made sure to win the gold for the 6-year-olds. All the medals came on Irish bred horses. All photos (c) Jenny Abrahamsson.

Maikel van Mierlo has had huge success in Lanaken the last couple of years with Earley, that now can be seen under Quentin Judge. This year van Mierlo was in the final with Follow Up (Andiamo x Winningmood).

Julian de Boer did some great rounds leading him and Fernando V (Zapatero VDL x Larino) to the silver medal. His time in the jump-off was unbeatable, actually more than ten seconds faster than that of O'Neill, but a rail down stopped him from victory.

Full speed, but for faults in the jump-off, lead to the third place for Thierry Goffinet and Kannabis van de Bucxtale (Contact van de Heffinck x Concord).

Willem Greve earned the bronze with the lovely Formidable (Carambole x Calvados) among the 5-year-olds last year, while this year they had to settle for the fourth place.
