AMERICANS CLINCH CONVINCING VICTORY ON HOME GROUND AT WELLINGTON by Louise Parkes

 

 

The host nation secured a convincing win in the second leg of the Furusiyya FEI Nations Cup™ Jumping 2013 series at Palm Beach International Equestrian Centre in Florida, USA tonight.Their final score of four faults belied the fact that Kent Farrington (Uceko), Reed Kessler (Cylana) and Laura Kraut (Cedric) had the result secured without calling on their anchor partnership of Beezie Madden and Simon in the second round, leaving the remaining six teams to battle it out for the minor placings in the closing stages.

 

Bolstered by foot-perfect performances from Tiffany Foster (Victor) and Ian Millar (Dixon), and despite first-round elimination for Mac Cone (Amor van de Rostel), Canada finished second with a final tally of just five faults, while Germany won through in a battle with the Irish for third place.Venezuela finished fifth, Colombia slotted into sixth and Mexico finished last of the seven competing countries.
