FEI Nations Cup™ Eventing Series 2016

 

 

In 2016 Germany won a third FEI Nations Cup™ Eventing title in five years, beating Great Britain, the winners of the ninth and final leg at Boekelo (NED), by 20 points.

The two countries have been close rivals since the FEI Nations Cup™ Eventing started in 2012, with Britain heading the final leaderboard in 2013 and 2015, and both teams have scored three wins each this season.

Germany could only manage fourth place at Boekelo but the best seven scores in the series count and, therefore, Britain, which has contested eight out of nine legs this year, including the new competition at The Plains (USA), had to drop their lowest score: 55 points for a sixth place at Fontainebleau (FRA).

France, which has also shown great consistency over seven legs of the 2016 Nations Cup™ Eventing season and won at Vairano (ITA) last month, finished third in the table. The Netherlands, which has contested five legs, was fourth, and Australia, which scored a memorable win in Aachen (GER), was fifth.

Britain was third after Dressage at Boekelo but soared into a clear lead with three brilliant cross-country performances, all inside the optimum time of 10 minutes 50 seconds.

“Yet again, the FEI Nations Cup™ Eventing has provided a brilliant and exciting competition to follow and it’s great that so many teams are using it to bring on up-and-coming riders to prepare for championships,” said Catrin Norinder, the FEI’s Director of Eventing and Olympic.

“There has been much to celebrate, look forward to providing another great season in 2017.”

            Mike Etherington-Smith

 

 Mike Etherington-Smith, Chief Executive of British Eventing, is working closely with the FEI Eventing Committee on developing this news series. “This exciting new idea for a Team Competition at 3* level, which is open to all nations, has taken some time to pull together. We all very much hope that it will capture the interest and imagination of National Federations, riders, Organising Committees, sponsors and the media,” he explained.

 

“The FEI Nations Cup Eventing series is also seen as an exciting opportunity for riders to gain valuable team experience, and for National Federations to use it to improve performance as well as adding an interesting dimension to the sport.”
