After the drama of yesterday morning, all anyone wanted was a relaxed, drama-free start to Sunday at Luhmühlen. And that’s exactly what they got: each of the 22 horses who completed cross-country were brought forward in front of the ground jury of Christina Klingspor (SWE), Anne-Marie Taylor (GBR), and Martin Plewa (GER), and each of them was accepted. Done, dusted, and all the more time to find oneself a Fischbrötchen and wipe away the last debris of a long night singing along to this banger:
The five-star showjumping will get underway at 11.45 a.m. local time/10.45 a.m. BST/5.45 a.m. EST, and will run in reverse order of merit. While we don’t have set times for each horse and rider combination, we can tell you that Frankie Thieriot Stutes and Chatwin, who sit in eighth place, will be fifteenth to jump. We can also tell you that the showjumping course, in true Luhmühlen fashion, is seriously big and seriously tough. It’s not going to be an easy feat to win this one today, folks.
