Haras du Pin: Germany wins Nations Cup, Austria in 11th place – Equestrian Worldwide | Equestrian sport worldwide
versatility – The German team won the Nations Cup at the fifth stage of the FEI Eventing Nations Cup in Haras du Pin, France, ahead of France and Great Britain. The Austrian team, which consisted of only three riders, slipped back to eleventh and penultimate place after Harald Ambros (AUT) had to withdraw his Lexicon 2 before the final jumping for the horse’s benefit.
Great rounds in dressage and on the cross-country course of the short four-star test in Haras du Pin, France, put the German team in a great starting position before the final show-jumping. The 22-year-old Nations Cup debutant Alina Dibowski (GER)Daughter of the team Olympic champion in Beijing 2008, Andreas Dibowski, secured victory for herself and her teammates with her clear round in jumping Malin Hansen-Hotopp (GER), Sophie Leube (GER) and Nicolai Aldinger (GER).
Behind them, the home team from France and Great Britain placed second and third.
Unfortunately, things didn’t go as planned for our red-white-red eventing team this weekend: Lea Siegl (ÖÖ) and Van Helsing P, Katrin Khoddam-Hazrati (ST) with Oklahoma & Harald Ambros (ÖÖ) with Lexicon forms the Austrian team for the Nations Cup in Normandy. After good performances in dressage, Lea and Kathi show rounds without jumping errors in difficult terrain. Only a few time errors for timeout were added to the accounts of the two. Harald Ambros and the DSP gelding Lexikon had jump 10C, narrow element of a triple combination, a passer and a certain 20 minus points for refusal and 17.6 penalty points for the resulting time violation.
For the well-being of the horse, the Oberösterreicher Lexikon decided not to start in the final competition. The Austrian team was penalized with 1000 penalty points and was therefore no longer competitive, since there are no discarded results in a team of three.
