Every morning at 7 before his day of work starts at Ashford Farm, Zanotelli gets in the car to take the thirty minute drive from Bocholt, Belgium to Valkenswaard, Netherlands to ride his top horse AD Clouwni – that is stabled at his owners Doda de Miranda and Athina Onassis de Miranda's yard. Then it's back to ride the eight-or-so-horses at home. Among them you will find Michel Robert's former success horse Nenuphar 'Jac who will be sure to greet Zanotelli's arrival with a 'Bisou' – a little kissing trick he learned from his former French rider, which is willingly demonstrated as Marlon shows us around the brand new stable which is filled with current and future stars.

Aachen images | Emotions & tears at Corradina's retirement cermony
Tuesday, 22 July 2014 06:24
There were few dry eyes during the emotional retirement ceremony of Carsten-Otto Nagel’s fantastic partner Corradina 2 in Aachen on Thursday. Corradina 2 jumped to individual silver and team bronze at the Europeans at Windsor in 2009, to team gold at the World Equestrian Games in Kentucky in 2010, to team gold and individual silver at the Europeans in Madrid in 2011 and to team silver at the Europeans in Herning last year. She has been with Nagel since she was a youngster, and in addition to her medals Corradina 2 can look back on a career full of Grand Prix and Nations Cup wins. We wish one of our all-time favorites a fantastic and peaceful retirement! All photos by Jenny Abrahamsson.
This is the horse that is on everybody's lips at the moment; Meredith Michaels-Beerbaum's Fibonacci 17 - a nine year old gelding by For Feeling x Corland - jumps incredible with the German rider, and to sit on this horse must be like flying! Here is a little photo series from Friday's 1.55 class to illustrate. Photos by Jenny Abrahamsson.

Since Angelica Augustsson jumped into the spotlight on Mic Mac du Tillard with a sensational World Cup win on home soil in Gothenburg in 2011 – hitting the headlines world wide – a lot has happened in her life. First of all the 27 year old Swedish rider added her first senior championship medal to her tally, as she together with her team mates took home the bronze medal at the European Championships in Herning last August – again riding Mic Mac du Tillard. Success, and the extremely special bond to her four-legged partner Mic Mac, did not stand in Angelica's way of making a big change in her life though – as she started up 2014 moving from Dietmar Gugler's Gestüt Prinzenberg in Germany to Enda Carroll's Ashford Farm in Belgium. Closing an eight year old chapter with Gugler, Angelica turned the page to start up with a blank one – but quickly discovered that the pages were filling faster than she thought they would.
WoSJ ended up with a lot of headless bodies in Rotterdam. Our focus was just too much on the horses so the riders didn't fit into the picture... Here's Frank Schuttert's body on Winchester HS. All photos by Jenny Abrahamsson.
Together with Scott Brash, this is the horse that rules the world at the moment. While Brash does not move from the top of the Longines Ranking, Ursula XII also stays firmly on top of the FEI WBFSH World Ranking - echoing her rider. All photos by Jenny Abrahamsson.
