Holy smokes Batman, day one of showjumping at the World Equestrian Games in Tryon was nothing short of spectacular. The leaderboard is full to the brim with phenomenal names in showjumping such as Markus Ehning of Germany, Lorenzo De Luca of Italy and, of course, the United State’s own superstar McLain Ward. But it was the Swiss who would rise to the top today with two riders in the top five. Martin Fuchs and Clooney are currently in the fifth place spot and former world number one Steve Guerdat is clinching to the first place position with his mount, Bianca.
Watch as Guerdat guides the feisty mare through many trying obstacles, including a wall and a liverpool, with no hesitation. The duo crossed the timers at 76.33 seconds, narrowly edging out Brazil’s Pedro Veniss who ended on a time of 76.68
Oh My Stevie G!! 😲The rockstar that is Steve Guerdat set a blistering round with Bianca here @tryon2018 in the penultimate round of the day to steal the day 1 win away from Pedro Veniss!! What a round. What a day of jumping!!
