CSI5*-W Jumping Amsterdam 2019

The Longines FEI World Cup returned to Amsterdam last weekend, and with success. The class was extremely exciting, with a jump-off that couldn't have been scripted better. Pius Schwizer was second last to go, and with the 10-year-old Cortney Cox he impressed everyone when taking over the lead from Daniel Deusser. But, a few minutes later the Swiss rider was beaten by the last man in the ring – Henrik von Eckermann. All photos (c) Jenny Abrahamsson.
