Helsinki International UB Horse Show 2013 / Longines FEI World Cup

Rolex turned Longines

On Sunday it was time for the last International jumping competition - CSI5* of this year's Helsinki International Horse Show. We were sitting on the first row so most of the pictures might seem a bit funny. But here is just to get a bit of the feel at the areena.

Building up the tension and feeling. Ignore the Gigantti lounge sign. 

Austrian Robert Puck and Glock's Zaranza
Swedish Malin Baryard-Johnsson and one-eyed H&M Tornesch 1042

How can you not adore and look up to (I actually literally look down at Malin cause I am so tall) Malin Baryard-Johnsson. She is a fantastic rider and makes jumping fences at the hight of 1.60 look like a walk in the park. She is also such a gentle and good rider and seems to work in perfect harmony with her horse. 

Canadian Courtney Vince, Valetto JX

Qatar, Sheik Ali bin Khaled Al Thani, Cantaro 32

Norwegian Stein Endresen, Cassiopeia 55

Stein Endresen was one of my absolute favourites during this year's show. I really liked his riding style and his horses seemed to enjoy themselves. He had a very soft and balanced riding style that I really enjoyed following throughout the competition. 

Finnish Maiju Mallat, Armani the Gun CH

Hungarian/Finnish Kaarlo Kovacs, Agropoint Cassius 

Swedish Angelica Augustsson, Mic Mac du Tillard

Finnish Satu Liukkonen, Celestine

Look at this beautiful horse. WOW!

Price Giving Ceremony

Suisse Martin Fuchs, Conte Della Caccia

Rounding the day off with the price giving ceremony and some pictures of Malin Baryard and H&M Tornesch 1042.
