ben-trippleBen Maher on Tripple X III. Photo by Jenny Abrahamsson.The legal dispute between Ben Maher and his previous horse owners Michael and Emma Phillips of Quainton Stud LLP has been settled. Michael and Emma Phillips filed two law suits against Maher at the end of last year, and alleged in one of them that Maher took "secret profits" on the sales of their horses during their long-time co-operation. The other law suit was aimed to sell their jointly-owned Tripple X III – that this spring was sold to Canada. Maher on the other hand claimed that Michael and Emma Phillips owed him money on services, stud fees and commission on horse sales. Now the case has come to a close.

Photos by Jenny Abrahamsson.After a competition with many twists and turns, Germany went to the top in the Furusiyya FEI Nations Cup Europe Division 1 in Falsterbo on Friday afternoon.

Sweden, together with the Netherlands, was in the lead after round one though.

And for a second year in a row, Otto Becker's crew were the strongest in Falsterbo.
