The USA’s Beezie Madden and Beat Mändli of Switzerland claimed international jumper victories on Thursday, October 26, at the Washington International Horse Show CSI4*-W (WIHS), running now through October 29 at the Capital One Arena in downtown Washington, D.C. 

Madden’s victory came aboard Breitling LS (Quintero x Accord II), who topped a field of 26 entries to win the $35,000 International Jumper Welcome Stake, presented by Rushy Marsh Farm. 

Madden, a two-time Olympic team gold medalist, and the 11-year-old Dutch Warmblood stallion owned by Abigail Wexner, were one of nine entries to successfully contest the first-round over a track designed by Alan Wade (IRL). Advancing to the jump-off, the pair laid down a clear time to beat of 30.78 seconds.

Beat “Dracula” Mändli speeds to accumulator win

In his first time competing at the Washington International Horse Show, veteran show jumper Beat Mändli (SUI) won the $35,000 International Jumper Accumulator costume class, presented by Equestrian Sport Productions. The crowd-favorite class was held during the show’s always-popular Barn Night, supported by A Little Pet Vet, US Equestrian, BarnManager, The Equiery, The Clothes Horse, and United Metro Golf Carts. 

Mändli rode Dibatsja (Veron x Indoctro) to the win by clearing every jump on course, including the final joker jump, to score 65 points in the fastest time of 43.09 seconds. Second place went to Mändli’s student, Katherine Dinan. Dinan (USA) and Tarioso Manciais (Arioso du Theillet x First Bride), owned by Grant Road Partners GmbH, also had 65 points in a slightly slower time of 43.43 seconds. Third place went to Amanda Derbyshire (GBR) and Lady Maria BH (Cartani x Corrado I), owned by Gochman Sport Horse LLC, with 65 points and a time of 43.46 seconds.
