There was a really interesting trial, exclusively for horsewomen, that brought together lady-riders from both the CSI5* and CSI2* categories for the Queens Cup over 1.45m with jump-off. The trial was presented by Stephex Stables and was won by the Dutch lady-rider Anne-Liza Mekkinga with Cacharelle (Chacco Blue). Mekkinga was able to see off the competition from Sweden’s Erica Swartz on Conisha van de Helle (Con Air) who came in second place and Petronella Andersson with Quenndal de Loujou HDC (Le Tot de Semilly) who took the final podium slot.
