Who Jumped it Best? Houghton Nations Cup Edition

The first leg of the 2019 Nations Cup series got off to a rollicking good start over the weekend at the Saracen Horse Feeds Houghton International Horse Trials, with Germany taking a consecutive fifth win. But now it’s time to move onto more subjective victories: namely, who jumped a randomly-chosen fence the best.

Our choice was fence 6A, the Saracen Horse Feeds parallel. This early combination consisted of the parallel rails — pictured — and, upon landing, a right-handed turn to two steeply angled offset brush fences. So now, dear readers, the power is in your hands — who do you think showed the best form and effort over the first element of this technical combination?
