:SVK Michael Bugan & For President scored 70% at WC qualifier in Hungary. :yikes: What a shocker, his previous PB was 65% from last year. And a couple of months ago he was scoring in low 60s...

 

@hckosice Maybe there is a chance after all that between Bugan and Chudyba there could be an Olympic equestrian quota for Slovakia. We'll see. :d

This weekend Barcelona will host (again) the Nations Cup final of jumping. 15 teams are entered: :AUT:BEL:BRA:CAN:FRA:GER:GBR:IRL:ITA:NED:ESP:SWE:SUI:UAE:USA

 

Field is somewhat weaker since the WEG has just ended (lots of withdrawals from non-European teams). This event will be much more serious next year with an Olympic quota on the line.

 

Start list for the first round.

:AUT:ITA:SWE:BEL:NED:IRL:SUI:FRA qualify for the Grand Final on Sunday. Great day for Austria and Italy, especially Austria who won the first round and they didn't even have a team in Tryon! I hope their federation finally starts to give them some credit.

 

:GER:USA:CAN:GBR:BRA:UAE:ESP will compete in tomorrow's consolation round.

 

Spain, as the hosts, managed to be behind UAE. :facepalm::lol:

What a frustrating day for Deslauries family. :facepalm:

 

Father Mario and daughter Lucy remained the only ones with a possibility of jumping a double clear, and thus sharing 50,000 euro reward. However both failed because both collected a time penalty! Mario 0.37 and Lucy 0.22 outside the optimum time. Unbelieveable. :facepalm:

 

:GER Germany is the winner of today's consolation round.

OMG, unbelieveable! :ITA Lorenzo de Luca was jumping for the Itailan victory, but ended up having 2 last fences down!! That dropped Italy from potential gold to 4th! :facepalm:

 

Nations Cup Final podium

:BEL Belgium

:FRA France

:IRL Ireland

 

Grass is green, water is wet, Belgium won the Nations cup... Incredible how they are seemingly incapable of getting any championship medal...

So this monstrosity of a dressage test will be used at London World Cup later this year. Apparently you can just remove 2 extended trots and a whole line of piaffe-passage, and still call it a dressage test, even if the whole canter remained untouched. :facepalm:

 

Hopefully it's just one time fling from super urban organizers and nothing more than that...

:NED Boekelo Horse Trials are in progress, with the cross-country day coming up tomorrow. Over 50,000 spectators (mixed with rowdy bars and giant inflatable objects) are expected in this apparently one of the biggest annual sports events in the Netherlands.

 

@heywoodu Were you ever in Boekelo? Or maybe I should rather ask, have you ever heard of this event? :p
