CSI5*-W A Coruña 2023

Leading FEI U25-rider Harry Charles continued on a winning streak at CSI5*-W A Coruña this past weekend, where he topped Friday's CSI5*-W 1.50m Caixabank Trophy with Billabong du Roumois (Mylord Carthago x Papillon Rouge, bred by Philippe Berthol) as well as Sunday's 1.60m Longines FEI Jumping World Cup™ with Sherlock (Bisquet Balou C x Malito de Reve, bred by Gustaaf Quintelier).

Casas Novas Equestrian Center in Arteixo, A Coruña, hosted the 7th leg of the 2023/2024 Longines FEI Jumping World Cup™ Western European League – as one of three December-stops in the league. And here, we look back at some of the highlights.
