Take a minute to relive our World Cup winner’s jump off by watching the video below! What Christian Ahlmann and Clintrexo Z (by Clintissimo Z) demonstrated earlier today was, to say the least, impressive.
On the podium of the Longines FEI World Cup (presented by BMW) Ahlmann was joined by Kevin Staut with Edesa's Cannary (by Caretino 2) and Harrie Smolders with Don VHP Z N.O.P. (by Diamant De Semilly). Next to these three riders only Ludger Beerbaum and Casello (by Casall) took part in the jump off, but they collected 14 penalty points and ended up in fourth place.

"I think everyone can see that I gave it all I had", Ahlmann told the press after his victory. "I saw Kevin's round and immediately realized that I had no other choice. Clintrexo did so well. I am already looking forward to the future with this horse. "Strangely enough, Ahlmann himself was not the center of attention at the prize-giving ceremony. It was his son Leon who stole the spotlight when he fell into his father’s arms.
Christian Ahlmann won the FEI World Cup in Mechelen once before. In 2015 he was victorious with Taloubet.
