For the first time during this CSI2* tournament weekend it was not the German national anthem which was played to honour the winner of the competition. On Saturday evening, the 27-year old equestrian Ben Talbot, who originally comes from Southern England but now lives in Prague asserted himself at AFP's Jumping Trophy to win the Championship of Brandenburg. In the winning round he gave a good performance and successfully beat his 14 remaining competitors by reaching 40.89 seconds without any penalty points. The second place went to Mynou Diederichsmeier and Niagara while Dirk Klaproth and Quinta were placed third - both German riders.

PenelopeNiceStephanie21Penelope Leprevost and Nice Stephanie are in top form at the moment. Photo by World of Showjumping.France's nr. one lady rider was leading the way in Verona on Friday, taking home the biggest five star win of the day. Aboard her faithful partner Nice Stephanie (Cardento x Ralme Z) – that also ended on top in Oslo three weeks ago – Penelope turned out to be unbeatable in the 1.55 Premio Prestige. Against twelve other riders, Penelope was by far the fastest one in the jump-off to take the top prize of 15 000 Euro.

 

Penelope came in early in the jump-off, and jumped another beautiful clear round. Getting a great turn from the second vertical to the third, and then back to the combination – she set the mare in top gear up on the stretch to the following oxer – cleared the next fence – and then went flat out towards the final vertical. When the clock stopped it showed a time of 37.69 and it looked very hard to beat.
