Thrills and spills from the Longines Grand Prix of Falsterbo

Tuesday, 18 July 2023
CSIO5* Falsterbo Horse Show 2023

The 2023-edition of Falsterbo Horse Show concluded with the traditional €300,000 CSIO5* 1.60m Longines Grand Prix, where Martin Fuchs and the 12-year-old Conner Jei took the title ahead of Willem Greve and Highway M TN in second. "In the jump-off, I did not start with the nine strides as Martin did with his horse, he has a huge stride," Greve said afterwards. "I added and there I lost. I think I could not have made it, he also had a long distance at the FEI jump, but the rest of my jump-off was very smooth. I am very happy with how my horse jumped and he is in great shape, so I hope we will continue [like this].” 

With these images, we look back at the action in the Longines Grand Prix of Falsterbo!

Photo © Jenny Abrahamsson/WoSJ Well... When 13 pairs move on to the second round and there are 14 clears... Rik Hemeryck and Morfine de Muze produced a fantastic clear and still had see themselves left out of the second round due to the slowest time.

Photo © Jenny Abrahamsson/WoSJ. Hoppala! Pieter Devos and Nascar van'T Siamshof cut a bit too much on the corner of the penultimate vertical and took the wings down with them. With eight penalties in round two, they ended 10th.
