It all came down to the very final fence in the 7 year old Championship. Last to go Selle Francais looked on track to take the crown until two down from their last to go handed the win to KWPN. KWPN were the second team to go and held the lead from the start. Finishing on a team total of 13 faults the squad of Let’s Wait and See HX (Owner: Hx Breeding / Breeder: Stal Hendrix) ridden by Gaj Riossa, Loekie-Douglas (Owner: Johannes Woudstra / Breeder: Vof Platenkamp & Evenhuis Services) ridden by Hilde Woudstra and Lavesther (Owner: Bas Moerings / Breeder: G.J.A.

While last to go Selle Francais had to settle for Bronze at the Longines Tops International Arena this time with their team of Giorgio d’Ellipse (Owner: S.N.C. Ellipse / Breeder: S.N.C. Ellipse) ridden by Robin Lesqueren, Grand Duc du Paradiso (Owner: Alain Leclercq, E.A.R.L.

The 6 year old Final was filled with thrills from start to finish as once again the teams who came into the arena first took top honors. Belgium Warmblood squad had almost flawless rounds to finish on a team total of 5 faults with a clear from Rhythm-K van ‘t Kattenheye ( Owner: JV Horses, Stal ‘T Kattenheye / Breeder: Annemarie & Tony Raman – Strobbe) ridden by Jan Vermeiren. A single-time fault from Ransome 111 (Owner: Stud 111 / Breeder: Stal Harrie Theeuwes) ridden by Gilles van Hamme and one down from their third team member of Rhapsody van het Netehof (Owner: Roger De Winter / Breeder: Roger De Winte) ridden by Jeroen de Winter skyrocketed them to the top of the leader board.

The Danish Warmblood squad were first to go in the final after not the best starts to the week but they saved it all for the last day as they took home silver medal and left the rest of the chasing them down. The team made up of Feldborgs Cantonelli (Owner: Nordentoft Equestrian Aps / Breeder: Arne Feldborg Johannesen), Syvhoejegaards Final Edition (Owner: Niels Osterland / Breeder: Niels Osterland) and Emmett H DWB (Owner: Sporthorses V/Brdr. Laursen I/S / Breeder: Marie-Louise & Lars Wulff Henriksen finished with a total of 9 faults and the riders Rikke Andersen, Anne Katrine Kolborg Johansen and Mikkel Laursen excited the arena smiling ear to ear.

Interesting last to go Anglo European Studbook couldn’t quite handle the pressure and finished with a total of 16 faults good enough for the bronze medal today. The team of Millfield Lottery (Owner: Angela Hunt, Nick Ward / Breeder: Millfield Stud) ridden by Emily Ward, Chrysler Key SR (Owner: Carron Nicol / Breeder: Keystud) ridden by Leo Lamb and Heart of Cicero (Owner: Weston Lawns Stud / Breeder: G Reynolds) ridden by Georgia Wells fought until the last fence giving it everything that had from day one here at Longines Tops International Arena.

It was a dramatic 5 year old final as it fell apart for favorite Selle Francais and they finished bottom of the order today.
