The FEI World Cup Finals Jumping & Dressage have begun in Las Vegas. Charlotte and Valegro have once again blitzed the field with a whopping score of 85.414%, Edward Gal riding Glocks Undercover N.O.P following in second place with a score of 79.057% and Stephan Peter’s on Legolas scoring 76.843%. The top eight riders receiving a total prize pool of 25,000.00 USD.
Looking through the competitors list to see which Australians are competing in Vegas, there was one Australian rider who’s name stood out. One Lane Clarke born in 1985 show jumper from Australia. I’m not sure if “our” (yes taking ownership) Lane Clarke is riding in Vegas, but how exciting would it be if he was and no doubt in the future this very talented show jumper will be up there with the worlds best.
FEI TV are streaming the World Cup LIVE, although you will have to be an early riser, and pay a fee to join, this is a great way to get your dressage fix. The next Dressage Finals will be streaming on 19th April at 4:50am. There is a link from the World Cup home page for live viewing.
