The CSI5 * -CSI2 * Six Bars IFEMA Trophy was in charge of closing the first day of competition of the VI edition of IFEMA MADRID HORSE WEEK. This power class is one of the public favorites, since it is filled with tension and enthusiasm. Both fans of this sport and those who only look for entertainment, celebrate with the riders every round they pass without fault.
This year, the event was overflowing with adrenaline, which ended with a tie between the Irish Denis Lynch riding All Star and the Norwegian Johan Sebastian Gulliksen riding Arakon. Both pairs made an exceptional performance in a long class that lasted more than an hour, something unusual for a class of these characteristics. After the third jump-off, and having overcome the 195 cm obstacle without fail, both riders have decided to call it a tie and divide the prize.
Behind them were riders like the British Laura Renwick, the Swedish Peder Fredricson or the Spanish rider Ismael García Roque who fought until the end.
Tomorrow will be loaded with classes of different disciplines. Including the first class of this years novelty, the CDI-W FEI Dressage World Cup Grand Prix Eulen Trophy, which will take place at 13:00.
Young visitors will also enjoy the AON PonyTurf, a charity project that has the collaboration of different foundations dedicated to the protection and care of children. The class tomorrow will be presented by ASION.
