The Dutch team in the lead in the Nations Cup at LOTTO Strzegom Horse Trials

The team from the Netherlands has the best score after two trials of the equestrian triathlon: dressage and jumping in the Eventing Nations Cup class. Polish riders have the fourth position.


Merel Blom with Ceda N.O.P, Laura Hoogeveen with Wicro Quibus N.O.P, Raf Kooremans with Dimitri N.O.P and Jordy Wilken with Burry Spirit took the lead after dressage. The best result in the team and third position in the class individually belongs to Merel Blom. Germany is second, and Austria sits in third place. 5 teams compete in the class.


In the individual classification, the best rider is Ingrid Klimke with SAP Hale Bob OLD. The German rider kept her lead after dressage, even with 4 additional penalty points for one knockdown in the jumping. “I was very happy, especially with Bobby. He remembered what he has done here three years ago, so he did a wonderful job in the dressage. He was quite excited in the jumping and a little bit fresh, so he’s ready for the cross-country. Asha was quite tense in the dressage in the beginning, but then she became calm and did a wonderful round in the jumping today.”


The second place after a great dressage and a clear showjumping round belongs to Mateusz Kiempa riding Lassban Radovix, with only 1,1 penalty points separating them from the leaders. „Dressage and jumping are Lassban’s strong suits, so I was counting on him today. It went 100% according to our plan. You always have to be fully motivated for the cross-country trial. I hope everything goes as well as it did today.” – said the Polish rider.


Friday was the last day of the dressage tests in the short 3* and 2 * classes. Dirk Schrade has the lead in both of them with Casino 80 and La Duma. The 2* class for juniors and 3* class for young riders were dominated by German rider Greta Busacker with Scrabble 15 and Coco Maurice 2.


Today was also a showjumping day for the 1* Intro class. The best result belongs to Sophie Leube (GER) riding Skyjacker 3.


On Saturday and Sunday, the riders will compete in the cross-country and showjumping trials.
