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.

Today, We Climb

Sorry I'm a bit late with my blog—I was so tired when I got home last night I went straight to bed! It was a very early morning yesterday. The U.S. horses had a practice jog at 6:30 and everyone looked great.

The second horse inspection was at 7:30 and I think everyone went through easily. After I rode Cylana, I headed over to my parents' hotel—the breakfast there is so good! Most importantly, it was my Dad's birthday yesterday!!!

Top 10 So Far In My First World Cup Final!

Friday was another good day in Gothenburg! We got a chance to sleep in a bit after several early mornings. I had breakfast with my parents, and we all watched the movie The Terminal at their hotel.

I rode both horses around noon—Cylana was very relaxed and felt ready for today. Then I went straight to the gym for a good workout. After I finished I went to lunch with my parents, the Bond family and Kaylen Spooner. Around 4:30 I headed back to the show.
