Highlights from the Longines FEI Jumping Nations Cup™ of Mexico

Wednesday, 03 May 2023
CSIO5* San Miguel de Allende 2023

Last week, it was time for the Mexican leg of the Longines FEI Jumping Nations Cup™ 2023 as CSIO5* San Miguel de Allende hosted the first of three events in the North and Central America and Caribbean League. While the Americans won the Nations Cup, the Mexicans came strong in force too – taking the second place after a jump-off between the two teams. For Eugenio Garza Perez and Contago, it was a great weekend; not only did the two deliver a fantastic Nations Cup performance, but they also took the runner-up position in the Grand Prix.

In this photo special, we look back at some of the many highlights from the Nations Cup.
