Knock Out win for Högberg


International Dressage Knock Out Presented by Westerback ended the dressage program for this year’s Helsinki Horse Show. Jeanna Högberg and awesome FWB-stallion Duendecillo P continued amazing performances and took their third win for the weekend. Second place in this playful competition went to home rider Maria Pyykönen with Zelle and third was Swedish Per Duvefelt on Edvin.

- I think today was a question of having fun but of course pink boots and Finnish flag helped a lot. “Peikko” had so much fun today and he really enjoys the audience but at the same time he is still so relaxed, Högberg smiled after her performance.

Their performance also pleased the judges and they were yet again impressed by the skill and the cooperation of the horse and the rider.

- It’s lovely to see how “Peikko” grows up in front of the audience and is in good rhytmn with the music. His style is relaxed which gives something extra to the performance, Irmeli Summanen commented.
