At the Dublin Horse Show, after two rounds in which four of Henk Noor’s riders each completed a course without penalty, France fought hard to defeat Ireland on home soil. But with a second and a half to spare at the jump-off, Michael Blake’s men won second ahead of the Blues. A promising final leg of the FEI circuit for the Habs who finish the 2022 season top of the standings. A good omen ahead of the final in Barcelona at the end of September.
The best riders in the world have no rest, no time to breathe: a few days after the end of the world championship in Denmark, many of them went to Ireland for the CSIO5*. For the fourth and final stage of the Longines FEI Nations Cup circuit, where points must be scored, the national trainer Henk Nooran And chose to deploy the Federal Sports Supervision Team Mark DeLazar Arioto du Gevres (Semily’s Diamond), Julian Gonin a Valou du Lys (Calvaro Z, Holst), Edward Levy Uno de Cerici (Open Up Semily), Megan Moisonnier and Cordial (Cassel, Holst), as well Kevin Stout Visconti du Telman (Toulon, Bwp). Event kicks off on a spacious Irish grass pitch: Friday, 3 p.m. The Blues are far from deserved: In the first round, Mark DeLazar and Edward Levy are able to complete a clear round, with four and eight points for Kevin Stout and Megane Moisonnier respectively. And so France finished its first round second, with a total of four points, tied with Switzerland, behind Ireland, on zero points, thanks to penalty-free courses. Conor Swail, Shane Sweetnam etc Cian O’Connor.
In the second round, the French riders, determined not to waste their chance, took advantage, completing four clear rounds! A performance worth mentioning as no other group could achieve such a feat at this FEI Nations Cup stage. So the Blues ended their two sets with a respectable score of four points. Ireland sees two of its riders complete the course with a bar on the ground Max Watchman, associated with the gray Berlux (Berlin, Holst), a former teammate of Simon Delestre. Michael Blake’s men also finished with four points, leveling the two nations. On Switzerland’s side, four points were collected on the clock in the first race, courses from four points. Nicholas Cucci etc Edward Schmitz Increase the score. She finishes with a total of eight points. Note, in this group, the unerring double Steve Guerdat And his sparkling Dynamics de Belhem, chosen to run on multi-medal winner Dinard. At just nine years old, this fine Celle Francis mare by Snake de Blondel (Calvaro Z, Holst), Cornet Obolensky, BWP, was born Frederick Imes, could become one of the top bullets for the former world number one, who, as we know, appreciates seeing some of the qualities of the Selle Franchise pass under his saddle. Dynamix once again shows its competitive qualities in Dublin after sixth place in Dinard’s minor Grand Prix 155.
France and Ireland are tied on points after two rounds. And, just like at Hickstead three weeks ago, it’s Mark Dilazar and Arriotto who are ready for the playoffs. The couple completes a clear round again – the third day of the day! -, but half as fast as Conor Swail and Count Me In (Count Granus, Han) by a second, and this is also evident in the jump-off. So in this last stage France came in a good second place. Three second places in Sopot (PoL), Rotterdam (PB) and Dublin (IRL) and a win in Hickstead (GB) saw the French team top the standings with 370 points, ahead of the Netherlands (350 points). ) Germany (330 points). An appointment was made for Barcelona from September 29th to October 2nd, in order to replace the test and perhaps give the Blues a better performance in the final.
