FEI Eventing World Cup News

Linda Algotsson (SWE), riding the 13-year old gelding Stand by Me, won the 13th leg of the FEI Eventing World Cup held in the Polish town of Strzegom from 8 through 10 August. She was equal 2nd with Karin Donckers (BEL) after Dressage having scored 39.8 points. She secured her runner-up position after a clear cross country and finally conquered the 1st place after a faultless Jumping test. Linda's result is all the more remarkable as she also took the 4th place with Fair Dobbin.

The runner up position went to Belgium's Karin Donckers on Captain Nightcap with a final result of 40.8. Competition was extremely tight as Karin and Linda were equal 2nd after Dressage and moved up to become equal 1st after a clear cross country. The point that made the difference was the penalty Karin scored for exceeding the time allowed in the Jumping test. She also took the 6th place on the 12-year old gelding Chumbawumba whom she began riding this year.

The 3rd place also went to a woman. Twenty-two year old Simone Deitermann (GER) on Flambeau H3 performed the qualifier's best Dressage test scoring an outstanding 38.8. 3.2 penalties at the Cross Country made her lose her temporary leader's position and 1 time penalty in the Jumping definitely relegated her to 3rd place. The pair are no newcomers to the World Cup series as they also competed at Bonn-Rodderberg where they scored 8 points counting toward the standings. 2003 has been successful for them so far as they won the CIC*** Marbach (GER) last May.

Eddy Stibbe (AHO) took the 5th and 10th position riding Eton and Autumn Breeze respectively. This is Eddy's third World Cup qualifier after Gatcombe in August last year and Lulworth in July 2003. He currently holds 12 points and given that he is the only rider representing the Caribbean island of the Netherlands Antilles on the international Eventing scene, his presence in Pau is beyond doubt.

22 riders and 31 horses took place in the Strzegom World Cup qualifier; 16 riders and 20 horses completed the competition

The full results will be published on the FEI website
