After what proved to be a very tight two rounds without jump-off competition, the prize of tonight´s Telefónica Grand Prix landed in the hands of Swiss rider Pius Schwizer, in partnership with his champion mare Nobless M delivered a fantastic clear round in just 43.08 seconds.
The Irish rider Jessica Kürten came in second (45.69) with her mare Castle Forbes Myrtille Paulois. The third position went to Pedro Veniss from Brazil (45.87) and his Chesnut gelding Lester Vador. Another Swiss, Hansueli Sprunger and his gelding Kepi De Valse were fourth (48.99) and the fifth position went to the Dutch rider Vincent Voorn and his mount Audi´s Alpapillon – Armanie (49.80).
This is not Pius Schwizer´s first win in CSI Coruña, and it is the second time he receives the Telefónica Grand Prix, the first time being back in 2007 and riding his “Top horse” as he himself likes to refer to it: Nobless M.
He also declared to be very pleased to be taking part in this Casas Novas Horse Show, a show he considers to be among the best in the world.
