In Hardelot the Grand Prix went to Marc Houtzager and Sterrehof’s Voltaire (Now or Never x Accord II). The dutch combination was nearly a second faster than William Funnel and Billy Angelo in second. Franc Schillewaert and Marquis de la Lande were third with Kevin Staut in fourth place. These top four were the only double clears out of the eleven that went on to the jump-off from the 56 combinations to start.
In Arezzo it was Tim Rieskamp-Goedeking on the eight year old Chopin (Chellano Z x Alme Z) that took home the three star Grand Prix. The class had sixty riders lined up, and out of these fifteen went on to the second round – where four of them produced a second clear. Tim was the fastest though, on 42.73 seconds – 0.73 seconds ahead of runner-up and home rider Giovanni Consorti on Silverstras (Quantum x Corofino). Katharina Offel continued her good form and ended third on Nobylis (Bonhomme II SF x Rox de la Touche), while fourth place went to Claudia Gisler on Touchable (Navarone x Goodwill). It was Nicola Philippaerts who had the fastest time of the day, but he saw one down on Carlos V.H.P.Z (Chellano Z x Voltaire).
In the 3* Grand Prix of Neuendorf Pius Schwizer took home the win aboard Coolgirl after two clear rounds. The class had 50 combinations to start, but only three of them delivered double clear rounds. In addition to Schwizer the double clears came with two talented girls - Eugenie Angot riding Davendy S and Janika Sprunger with Palloubet D’Halong.
In Lummen it was Dutch rider Stefanie van den Brink who took home the three star Grand Prix on the nine year old gelding Wapper (Perion x Ircolando). Stephanie had one of five double clears out of the 51 riders, and was over a second faster than home rider Koen Vereecke on Allegro C van de Donkhoeven (Mr Blue x Robin II Z). Dirk Demeersman – also he from Belgium – ended third on the stallion Bufero VH Panishof (Parco x Polidictus).
