Nations Cup Eventing cross country

A day off thrills and luckily only a few spills. Things were tight at the top and the time for the course was influential, with only a few of the top combinations making time. This allowed Shane Rose on CP Qualified to move up to third place. Ingrid Klimke on Hale Bob managed to hold on to first place and Michel Jung on Biosteque Sam finished in second.

Nations Cup Eventing in Aachen

What dressage performances. So many under 40 penalties including Aussies Shane, Emma and Chris almost there. But the Germans dominated with Sandra heading towards the 30 and Ingrid and Michel not far off being the top 3 riders. Obviously the German team is in the lead followed by the Australians. The jumping phase later on that day did not change things much. But things are close which will make for an exciting day on Saturday and the cross-country.
