Longines FEI Jumping World Cup™ Final 2023

"I can’t even put this into words,” world no. one Henrik von Eckermann said after he and the incredible King Edward had secured the victory in the Longines FEI Jumping World Cup™ Final 2023 in Omaha, USA. "Having King Edward’s owner Georg Kähny and his wife here; it is fantastic that they could be part of this today. With my wife Janika and my team, this has been a goal for a long time, and that it goes our way – it is an unbelievable feeling. Every day, I am so thankful for what I have; we have to remember how quickly it all can change and appreciate every moment.” 

With this photo special, we look back at Henrik and King Edward's victory as we say congratulations to their whole team at Cyor Stables!

A dream come true: “I have not won this title before, and I used to go to Gothenburg as a child to watch the World Cup and it has always been a huge goal and a dream for me to have my name on that trophy, so for me this is very special,” von Eckermann said as he reflected on his victory.
