The American rider Brianne Goutal on Nice de Prissey was second and Swedish rider Peder Fredricson on H&M Cash In third. Longines was partner of the Falsterbo Horse Show for the fourth time in a row.
Falsterbo Horse Show was the fifth stage of the Longines Press Award for Elegance. This prize pays tribute to the most elegant and successful male and female riders of the season. The procedure is as follows: the 20 riders (10 men and 10 women) who have accumulated the most performance points during the 6 Nations Cup events where Longines is a partner are short-listed. In Dublin, the last stage of the Nations Cup, a jury of international journalists will elect the most elegant male and female riders from the short-list.
After five competitions, Penelope Leprevost (France, female horseriders category) and Shane Sweetnam (Irland, male horseriders category) are leading the intermediate ranking.
