Looking back at the Longines FEI Nations Cup in Rotterdam

Tuesday, 06 July 2021
CHIO Rotterdam 2021

We look back at Friday's CSIO5* Longines FEI Nations Cup in Rotterdam, the last in Europe Division 1 for this season. Willem Greve had all the reason to smile after recording only a time penalty in the last of the two rounds, helping the Dutch team to the win – a real confidence booster just ahead of the Olympic Games.

In the second round, it was more of an improvised hug after the pair got in trouble out over the c-element of the triple combination – a fence that caused several riders problems, especially in round two as shadows started to fall across the arena.

Once again, Beezie Madden showed great horsemanship and made it very clear that the result isn't the most important thing – but the feeling for the horse is. After the first round with Garant, she withdrew the 10-year-old gelding from the second round, and pulled out his nomination for the Olympics as she felt he is not yet ready for a championship of that calibre.
