Show jumpers from 34 nations are ready for the 2022 ECCO FEI World Championships in Herning

123 horses were presented at the show jumping Veterinary Inspection today at the ECCO FEI World Championships. Of these 118 passed inspection while 5 others will be seen again at re-inspection tomorrow morning(Tuesday 9 August).

All horses competing in the show jumping World Championships were presented to the Veterinary Commission headed by Dr. Nicolai Jarløv from Denmark and his colleagues, as well as to the Ground Jury at today’s inspection. Most of the horses trotted up perfectly and there were only a few that caused uncertainties. Seven horses ended up in the holding box and of these 2 were accepted after second trot-up. The last 5 will be re-inspected tomorrow.

After tomorrow morning’s re-inspection we will know exactly which riders will be ready for the first warm-up class scheduled for tomorrow, starting at 10 a.m. The first competition starts on Wednesday at 11 AM.

Five nations have competitors needing to attend re-inspection, while the rest, including the home nation, have all their riders ready for tomorrow’s familiarisation class.

Almost all horses were shown by their riders, but a few were trotted up by their grooms for various reasons. The show jumpers all behaved very well.

(Horses not accepted today included France’s Quel Filou, Kheros van’t Hoogeinde from Columbia, the Polish horse Cheppettano, Landriano Z from Israel and RMF Zecilie from the US).
