Olympic gold medalist Steve Guerdat honored his provenance and which Swiss Watch perfectly climaxed his second round to add another 2017 Grand Prix.
The course designed by German Frank Rothemberger and a Swedish crown at the Falsterbo Horse Show, watched as one of the greats of the Show Jumping celebrated his fame, when Steve Guerdat added his third Grand Prix won in last month, outlining the former world leader and current world number 11, his intentions to return to the leadership of the Ranking.
Introduced with the 10-year-old mare Hannah (Dulf van den Bisschop x Kashmir van Schuttershof) owned by Josef Salgado Negrete, Swiss rider Steve Guerdat completed the second round with 11 qualifiers in 44.00 seconds to take 130 World Ranking Points. While the winner came to 8 FEI wins this year, 6 of them have been Grand Prix, to give him the distinction as the biggest 2017 winner in this type of class.
