Maikel van der Vleuten fastest in the international 145


Sunday’s show jumping program continued with the International Final 145 cm Presented by Yliopistollinen Eläinsairaala. Maikel van der Vleuten on Dana Blue did an amazing round and took his first win for the weekend with over two seconds separating him from the second placed Luca Maria Moneta on Neptune Brecourt. Third place went to yesterday’s Grand Prix winner Steve Guerdat with Urzo d’Iso.

- I’m really happy with our round today, my horse is only nine years old and this is one of the first five star shows she’s doing. She has a great mentality and she is very quick and and that is what the horse needs if you want to win classes and compete at this level, van der Vleuten said after his performance.
