FEI World Cup Driving At Olympia
The exciting indoor extreme driving competition at Olympia is going to be an intense competition that will show off the speed, agility and accuracy of the horses and their driving teams.
On Wednesday 19th and Thursday 20th competitors including Boyd Exell (AUS) who competes with a wild card, Theo Timmerman (NED), Georg von Stein (GER), Koos de Ronde (NED), Christoph Sandmann (GER), Frederik Persson (SWE) as well as Britain's Daniel Naprous who also competes with a wild card are all hoping for a great finish at this prestigious event which is the fifth of eight events that makes up the World Cup series.
Each competitor competes at four events and earns points for their placings with the top six going forward to the final in Bordeaux, France. The leader board ranking's after five events currently has Ysbrand Chardon on 27 points very closely followed by Boyd Exell (AUS) on 25 points. In third at the moment is Tomas Eriksson (SWE), followed in fourth by Werner Ulrich (SUI), and Germany's Georg Von Stein in 5th at the moment so Olympia is going to be incredibly competitive for all involved.
The world cup qualifying course at Olympia International Horse Show will be designed by Johann Jacobs who will no doubt make the track a challenging one to test the skills of these talented driving teams.
