Koen Vereecke started fourth with Lector van den Bisschop (Bamako de Muze) and was the first Belgian combination on the circuit. The duo were only charged with one jumping foul on the first day. When the second set came, the pair were charged with a stick in the sand after a really good round. The last of the three jumps also hit the ground.
We saw the clear first round from Martin Fuchs (Switzerland) and Commissioner Pizzi (Commissario). After the first round, Switzerland only scored without jumping faults, while Ireland only had a time fault for Trevor Breen and Head Hyland (Clinton).
Niels Bruyneels was second for Belgium with the Deluxe from T&L (Toulon). Also for them, the bar hit the ground at the end of the triple jump after an earlier jumping error, also in a set.
Christian Kukoc (Germany) and Checker 47 (Comme il Faut) jumped in the clear second round, leaving the German team with Switzerland with a score of zero after the second round.
During the break, Fuchs said: “A great start and a great lap from Commissioner Pizzi. It was a difficult course, but I wish the best for the Swiss team. I feel more nervous when my teammates are in the ring, unlike when I am on the horse.” I personally am on the horse because I cannot control the situation. from the side. “We’ve never won here but it’s something we’ve worked hard for and hopefully we can come out on top here today.”
After the break, the clear group list included Martin Fuchs (Switzerland), Christian Kukoc (Germany) and Lily Atwood (GBR).
Third place at the beginning of Belgium was Willem Vermeer. In the saddle of reliable IQ Van Het Steentje (Toulon), last year’s Mechelen World Cup winner had to stay in the clear if our country still wanted to compete for trophies. The pressure was high, but the duo didn’t let that bother them. Vermeer and IQ secured a clear first round!
Hans-Dieter Dreher (GER) also finished his career flawlessly with Elysium (Zerocco Blue) and helped keep Germany at zero. After clear rounds from Luciana Donez (Brazil) and Vertigo du Desert (Milord Carthago), the final group in the ring was for Belgium: Gregory Watlett partnered with Bond Jamesbond De Hay (Diamant de Semele). The twelve-year-old stallion did not miss a beat, allowing the Belgian team to finish the race with a total of eight points.
The German team was the only team at the top of the classification with zero points, followed by Brazil with four out of two penalty kicks and Great Britain with eight out of three (like France and Belgium). A flawless run between Richard Vogel (GER) and United Touch S (Untouched) ensured the German team won the Nations Cup on Spanish soil.
A clear run by Rodrigo Pessoa (Brazil) and Major Tom (Vagabond de la Baume) ensured a high result for the Brazilian team. The last to reach the ring was Harry Charles (GBR) with Aralyn Blue (Chaco Blue).
