There were 44 entries in the Friday evening 1.45m class, competing over a course set by Louis Konickx of the Netherlands. 19 found the key to a clear round and it was down to the wire in time. Olympic Medalist Pius Schwizer (SUI) lead the class in first place with Cina Donna Awr. The impressive and talented team set an unbeatable time of 23.44 seconds to secure the victory. Pius was all smiles. “Tonight went really well. This is a very fast horse.” Schwizer said after his successful round. We look forward to watching him compete in Sunday’s Longines FEI Jumping World Cup™ presented by RAI Amsterdam.
