This weekend’s Grand Prix winners

A busy weekend it was all over the globe in the field of Show jumping. We had two 5 – star Grand Prix classes : The Longines CSIO of St. Gallen and the Longines Athina Onassis Horse Show in St. Tropez.

The former was won by Germany’s Hans – Dieter Dreher on Cool & Easy who came back after Friday’s retirement in the second round of the Furusiyya FEI Nations Cup due to the conditions of the weather. Dreher’s determination to come back and win Sunday’s 1m60 Grand Prix in St. Gallen was obvious.

Ten combinations made it to the Jump – off including 7 double clears such as home rider Janika Sprunger & the impressive Bonne Chance CW who finished in a time of 47.61 seconds to end in third place. In runner up, Lucy Davis of the United States shaved off fractions of a second with 12- year For Pleasure Gelding Barron. The crowned winners were Hans – Dieter Dreher who steered Cool and Easy to the 50,000 Euro grand cheque.
