Quotes after the Longines FEI World Cup in Oslo

JurStanding"It’s the first World Cup I win and also the first World Cup start for Zirocco," Jur told the press after his win in Oslo Photo by World of Showjumping. The winner Jur Vrieling on winning the opening leg of the Western European League Longines FEI World Cup; “It was really good. It’s the first World Cup I win and also the first World Cup start for Zirocco. A start like this is amazing. The course designers did a good job. It was heavy and technical enough, but it was not crazy. The horses did not have to stretch too crazy so it was a good start to the season. For me Zirocco jumped really good. I was a bit nervous to have Marco Kutscher behind me, he is my idol. I watched his first round and it was so beautiful, I knew he was going to beat me. But now when he was 0,7 seconds slower than me today I like him even more..”


Marco Kutscher on his plan for the jump-off going in last; “My horse Cornet’s Cristallo is very fast if he is in a jump-off. I saw the other jump-offs and they were going faster and faster. Jur was the only rider choosing the option to go on five strides down to the last oxer. My plan was to do that as well, but I came too close to the second last fence and I thought it would get too long so I decided to do the six strides instead. Either way I am really happy with my result because it is already a few months since I last could go to a press conference. It is a good start for me especially because I can not choose what World Cup shows I go to. Now I got some points and I will have the chance to get to ride more World Cups - so a good day for me.”

Photo by World of Showjumping.Sunday morning's 1.45 class in Oslo sponsored by Kingsland went to Brazil and Ashford Farm's Marlon Modolo Zanotelli. Riding Vera (Contender x Corrado II), Marlon had the difficult task of being first to go in the jump-off – but his very fast clear round in 34.22 seconds would prove impossible to beat as one rider after the other tried to catch him. Closest came Ireland's Cameron Hanley on Caretina de Joter (Caretino x Contender), who also was double clear with a time of 34.90. Another Irish rider followed in third; Shane Breen ended his jump-off in a time of 35.46 seconds on Farao van't Vennehof (Triomphe de Muze x Sun Light van de Zuuthoev).

Photo by WoSJ.Home riders Johan Sebastian Gulliksen and Kevin Melby split a very popular home win in the late puissance class at Kingsland Oslo Horse Show Saturday evening. Four riders cleared the wall at 2 meters in the third round. Dag Ove Kingsrød chose not to enter the fourth round with Clarkes Ferro (Creevagh Ferro ex Siebe x Diamonds Are Trumps), while Joe Clayton and Noctambule Courcelle (Fidelio du Donjon SF) literally met the wall in the fourth round.


Aboard Vasko (Karlstad x Topas) Melby entered the arena facing the 2.10 meter wall. They gave it a go, but could not leave the wall intact. The young Norwegian talent Johan Sebastian Gulliksen and Grand Balou 4 (Balou du Rouet x Grandeur), a horse we normally see with Johan’s father Geir Gulliksen, was the last combination to enter the arena. Like the rest of the Gulliksen-family Johan always rides to win. Unfortunately also Johan had to se a brick fall, but it was good enough for a split win and to make the home crowd more than pleased with a great finish to a long Saturday in the arena.

Photo by World of Showjumping.It was the experienced couple consisting of Michael Whitaker and Viking that emerged as winners in the five star Rikstoto Grand Prix in Oslo. The win did not come easy though, as Michael and the 12 year old chestnut gelding by Jacomar x Almox Prints had to go against no less than twenty other horses and riders after the clear rounds kept on pouring in over Uliano Vezzani’s thirteen fence track in the first round. In the end almost half of the class ended up in the jump-off, which of course ended in a real race.
