After being clear in both rounds of the Longines Global Champions Tour Grand Prix in London with Embassy II, Hans-Dieter Dreher was disqualified from the competition. The reason; a spur mark that was spotted during the mandatory boot check following the second round. The president of the FEI ground jury commented on the case to Horse & Hound, saying that there was no indication of horse abuse referring to the fact that "(...) things like that can happen, but FEI jumping rules are very strict on such things." World of Showjumping asked the rider himself to comment on the case.

Together with Kühner, the 11 year old gelding by Clinton x Calvaro has had great results at international Grand Prix level and in December last year the pair won the 1.55 Gaston Glock's Championat von Salzburg. "Clintop has been one of my top horses over the last years, and during this winter and summer season he has been very consistent in every Grand Prix he has jumped. This has also brought with it a lot of interest in him, and when you as a rider also have a business to run there eventually comes a time where you have to sell," Max Kühner comments to World of Showjumping.

With only a handful of grand prix in her repertoire, Cinderella picked up her second high-performance blue on Sunday. "She's peaking really young," said Torres of the mare his daughter Andrea Torres Guerreiro purchased as a five-year old. "We started moving her up this year and she won her first grand prix just a few weeks ago. We couldn't be happier with how quickly she is finding success."
