pius-quidam-du-vivierPius Schwizer won the first part of the Longines FEI World Cup Final on Quidam de Vivier. All photos by Jenny Abrahamsson.In the first competition of the Longines FEI World Cup Final in Lyon on Friday, Switzerland's Pius Schwizer showed how to do it when he seemingly effortlessly took the win on Quidam de Vivier (Socrate de Chivre x Iris Landai). The victory might have seemed a little unfair from the home crowds' point of view though, as it was very close to a French win for Patrice Delaveau and Lacrimoso HDC (Landjunge x Cascavelle) who in the end had to settle for second.

Because of this Cadjanine Z and Million Dreams (Diamant de Semilly x Concetto) will in the future be seen under Constant van Paesschen.

WoSJ Exclusive; Marcus Ehning – When action speaks louder than words

All photos by Jenny Abrahamsson."I never refer to any of my horses as my number one horse," Marcus Ehning replies as we sit around the kitchen table at his family's yard in Borken. We have just asked him about his amazing grey stallion Cornado NRW, and what has made him the leading horse in Ehning's stable. "The whole package is quite important," Marcus states firmly – unwilling to let any horse in his stable play a more important role than another. "You need to have a string of horses that give you options, and that you can swap around for the different classes at the shows. So if one horse doesn't feel good, you can use another one – managing them in the best way possible and making them support each other."

Photo by World of Showjumping.The three star Grand Prix in Lanaken went to Frank Schuttert and Winchester HS (Numero Uno x Nimmerdor). The pair was runners-up in yesterday’s 1.50 class at the Z-Tour, but today they were unbeatable in the five horse jump-off that concluded the Belgian event. Coming in as first to go in both rounds the pathfinders of the day ended as winners, and as always they produced a spectacular jump-off with Winchester throwing in bucks and jumping sky-high.

Photo by World of Showjumping.A lightning fast jump-off from France's Julien Epaillard secured him the win in Saturday's biggest class in Lanaken aboard the Casall-son Cristallo A LM. In usual Epaillard-style, the French rider went full speed around the shortened jump-off track and with an incredible turn to the penultimate combination he set the time at 40.92 seconds. Nobody could do anything about Julien, but closest came Dutch rider Frank Schuttert on Winchester HS (Numero Uno x Nimmerdor) who was almost two seconds behind on the clock. In third followed Oliver Lazarus on Curt (Contendro I x Quinto).
