The Queens Cup is traditionally a very difficult test to build for the course designers, as riders from CSI5* level, young talents from CSIU25 and CSI2* riders participate. A field of participants from different levels. As a designer, you can either make the course so hard that only a few combinations make it to the jump off or keep it at a reasonable height in order to give more riders a chance. 14 from the 23 starters were qualified for a jump off were the riders just had to prove themselves. Annelies Vorsselmans and Osaka entered as last participant and beat Edwina Tops (Lintea Tequila) and Vicky Van De Poel with a clear in 34,22 sec.
Annelies: “I am thrilled with this victory because every girl dreams about winning the Queens Cup in the Nekkerhal. You have to take risks but everything just went great.” The 30 year old rider who was riding for a Dutch stable until now will start for Stephex in January.
