CSI 5* Prix Boehringer Ingelheim – Henrik von Eckermann, naturally!

4 November 2023

Sweden's world no. 1 took first place in this 1.50-metre class against the clock, riding his excellent Selle Français, Dzara Dorchival. 

The reigning world champion had certainly not come to Lyon to make up the numbers! Having retired from the Longines Grand Prix with the same horse last night, he made up for it today by riding the fastest clear round of the 49 participants in 60'82. "Yesterday, I got one of the lines wrong, which resulted in Dzara making a big mistake. It disturbed her for the rest of the race, so I decided to stop. But, I am really happy with her response today. She jumped really well. Tomorrow, I'll be competing in the Grand Prix with Iliana," said the rider of the famous King Edward

Having already finished third in yesterday's Prix Groupama, Germany's Kendra Claricia Brinkop took second place this time, again riding Ma Belle (61''95). She finished ahead of someone who has made a habit of winning medals, the Dutch rider Maikel van der Vleuten on Dywis HH (61''99)

The highest-ranked French rider was Kevin Staut, who finished fourth with Visconti du Telman (62''16).
