Nations Cup 2019 : No Brexit at Deauville !

9th ever show and an 8th victory for the British in the Nations Cup at
Deauville’s CPEDI*** which took place this weekend at the Pôle International du Cheval Longines.

Unbeaten since 2012, the team headed by the superstar in the discipline, Sophie Wells, led the competition right from the outset. Alongside the Grade V rider and her excellent C Fatal Attraction, her fellow team members Nicky Greenhill /Betty Boo in Grade IV, Georgia Wilson/ Chico III and Susanna Hext/LJT Engaards Solitaire LJT in Grade II formed the winning combination.
Their secret : “ Our preparation and our organisation !” confided Sophie Wells. “We’re extremely lucky to be supported by funds from the National Lottery. This allows us to concentrate on our sporting objectives and we have excellent coaching at home ! We always try to improve at each competition. It’s hard to remain at the top, because the other nations are also improving. Nothing is won in advance. We must continue to work!”.

With 423.497 points, they climbed onto to highest step of the podium in front of the World Champions – the Netherlands – who accumulated 416.642 points thanks to good tests from Frank Hosmar/Alphaville NOP in Grade V, Nicole Den Dulk/Wallace N.O.P in Grade II, Yvette Overgoor/ Flynn and Anni Meijer/Countrymill Clarc in Grade III. Bronze went to Russia who accumulated 402.040 points over the two days. The team comprised of Natalia Martyanova/Martinus HO and Natalya Zhavoronkova/Haltic Bruers in Grade V, of Vladislav Kolosov in Grade IV and of Vladislav Pronskiy in Grade I performed extremely well in this first competition of the season.
