Boys vs. girls in the Fjord Battle at Sweden International Horse Show

Wednesday, 30 November 2022
CSI4* Sweden International Horse Show 2022

Sweden International Horse Show is about much more than international jumping, and the riders participating need to be prepared to take part in the entertainment. 'Fjordkampen' – the Fjord Battle – is a class where the female and male riders compete against each other in dressage, driving and jumping, all together with Norwegian Fjord horses. 

This year, the teams where captained by Malin Baryard-Johnsson and Jens Fredricson. Malin's team consisted of Ioli Mytilineou, Linda Heed and Angelica Augustsson-Zanotelli, while Abdel Said, John Whitaker and Marlon Modolo-Zanotelli participated on Jens' team.

Photo © Jenny Abrahamsson for WoSJ. Angelica really put some pressure on Marlon with her short turns.

Photo © Jenny Abrahamsson for WoSJ. Marlon was determined to win though, and set off in full speed.

Photo © Jenny Abrahamsson for WoSJ. Full focus!
