Tangible tension: The course walk for Friday's team final in Herning in images

Saturday, 13 August 2022
ECCO FEI World Championships 2022

With medals and Olympic qualification at stake, Friday's team final at the Agria FEI Jumping World Championship 2022 in Herning, Denmark, was always going to be a battle and the demanding course set by Louis Konickx made sure the competition developed into a real thriller. As the sun started to set over Stutteri Ask Stadium and the floodlights came on, the tension was tangible during the course walk. 

First out, Sweden's Peder Fredricson and Henrik von Eckermann, who both were on a golden mission in Herning.
