Dutch win at Aachen and soar up the Furusiyya rankings

The Netherlands won the Mercedes Benz Prize, part of the Furusiyya FEI Nations Cup™ Jumping 2013 series at Aachen, Germany tonight. In yet another thrilling leg of this inaugural season, the result lay in the hands of the final few riders.  And it was Gerco Schroder’s double-clear with the fabulous stallion London, the only one recorded on the day, that proved pivotal for the winning side when a last to go mistake from Ludo Philippaerts saw it slip from Belgium’s grasp.
