Hugs, Espresso And Emotion: Our Favorite World Cup Memories

When we're on assignment at a big competition for the Chronicle, it's our job to catch the winner at the best moment of action—in a perfect extended trot, or at the apex of a jump. And as much as we get a nice frisson of victory when we do capture those moments, it's frequently the less conventional photos that are our favorites—ones that might not be of the winners or appear in the magazine.

It All Goes Deusser's Way At Longines FEI World Cup Final

Lyon, France—April 21   

It was a clonk that echoed through the arena. The crowd sucked in their breath and raised their eyebrows. Cornet d’Amour swished his tail. And Daniel Deusser snapped out of the nervous fog he’d been in.

Deusser had it all to lose, and he’d just gotten really lucky at the first fence when Cornet d’Amour rubbed it hard but left it in the cups.

Schwizer Simply Wins Day 1 Of Longines FEI World Cup Final

Lyon, France—April 18   

Pius Schwizer is not prone to jubilation. He has a poker face worthy of the highest-priced card games. Even when he was center ring, accepting his first place in the first leg of the Longines FEI World Cup Final, he barely cracked a smile.

But it’s that simple, focused manner that allowed him to ride a horse he’s only had in the barn for four months to the top of the first day of the World Cup Final. Schwizer went into the ring on Quidam du Vivier and simply laid down an unbeatable trip in 63.37 seconds.

Cornet d'Amour Does Fantastic Things To Help Deusser Win In Mechelen

When Germany’s Daniel Deusser watched Jens Fredricson jump off in the Longines FEI World Cup qualifier in Mechelen, Belgium on Dec. 30, he wasn’t sure he could beat him.

“I saw him on the [television] screen and my alarm button was already on. I thought,’ Oh no! Now it’s going to be really hard work to beat that!’ said Deusser, who rode Cornet d’Amour.

“But I know my horse and he can do fantastic things. There was a long run to the double of verticals and I knew he could do one stride less to that, so I think that’s where we picked up the time,” he explained.
