Leopold van Asten took home the win for the Netherlands in the CSI3* Grand Prix at the Mediterranean Equestrian Tour in Oliva on Sunday. Riding VDL Groep W Zermie (Celano x Contender), the Dutch rider produced one of five double clear rounds in the 1.50 class. Runner-up was Italy’s Giulia Martinengo on Fixdesign Funke van’t Heike (Action Breaker x Grandeur), over a second behind on the clock in the jump-off. Third was Germany’s Alexander Schill on Chass (Calato x Calando I).

For a second week in a row, Janika Sprunger stole the win at the CSI3* Sunshine Tour. Riding Aris CMS (Nassau x Amethist) in the 1.55 Grand Prix, the Swiss rider produced the only double clear round of the class. In second came Yasmin Pinchen on Van de Vivaldi (Vivaldi van de Kempel x Golden Joy J), with two time penalties in the jump-off – while third place went to another British rider: Holly Gillot on Dougie Douglas (Ard VDL Douglas x High Roller).

At the CSI2* Atlantic Tour in Vilamoura, Adeline Hecart won the 1.45 Grand Prix. The French rider was aboard Question d’Orval (Rosire x Tu Viens Dorval), and was accompanied on the top by her compatriot Cedric Angot on Saxo de la Cour (Dollar de la Pierre x Jalisco B), who was almost four seconds behind in the jump-off. The last double clear of the day was delivered by Antonio Alfonso who took the third place on Redskin de Riverland (Allegreto x Muguet de Manoir).

The CSI2* 1.45 Grand Prix at the Costa del Sol Tour in Mijas went to home rider Santiago Nunez Riva. Aboard Vidar (Concorde x Epilot), the Spanish rider recorded the fastest jump-off of the class stopping the clock at 36.31 seconds. Over a second behind followed Switzerland’s Morgane Dassio on Massimina (Dohitzun Guernica x Flamingo). Peter Charles ended third for Great Britain on Stapleton Mist (Cascane x Newton).
