The Longines FEI Nations Cup in Falsterbo in images

CSIO5* Falsterbo 2018

The Longines FEI Nations Cup in Falsterbo turned out to be very exciting, with four teams qualifying for the jump-off that ended up being extremely fast. All four riders in the jump-off went clear, and all of them went all in with full speed and short turns. We start off with the man of the day - Johnny Pals - who secured the victory for the Netherlands riding Chat Botte du Ruisseau Z. All photos (c) Jenny Abrahamsson.

Photo (c) Jenny Abrahamsson. Daniel Coyle and Cita didn't have the best start to the Nations Cup with 12 faults in the first round - but they did a great comeback to be clear in round two and then securing the second place in the jump-off for Ireland.

Photo (c) Jenny Abrahamsson. Michel Hendrix and Baileys sadly had to leave the course on foot after almost falling over in triple combination. Left with only three riders for round two, the Dutch team still managed to secure the win.

Photo (c) Jenny Abrahamsson. Kasper H. Hansen did a great clear in the first round for Denmark riding Jemousin van den Dael.

Photo (c) Jenny Abrahamsson. Malin Baryard-Johnsson and H&M Indiana are in top form. First they finished 4th in the Grand Prix on Friday and then they delivered two clear rounds in the Nations Cup.

Photo (c) Jenny Abrahamsson. The same goes for Peder Fredricson's H&M Christian K - third in the Grand Prix and double clear for Sweden in the Nations Cup.
