A tug-of-war for the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games eventing champion began on Nov. 8, when Kreuter, his 60 percent-share owner, took the 10-year-old gelding from the Jungs’ stable in Baden-Württemburg, allegedly without their prior knowledge, to her home in Bavaria.

Exell Adds Another Aachen Win To His Résumé

He steals the show from several repeat champions and takes his second victory at the World Equestrian Festival in Germany.

British-based Australian Boyd Exell is no stranger to the Aachen CHIO, having won the individual four-in-hand driving competition there in 2003. But even with that experience at the famed German venue, his chances of capturing victory again this year on July 1-5 seemed slim compared to those of 11-time winner Ijsbrand Chardon of the Netherlands.

A new Swede rises to the top in the 12th stop on the Western European League World Cup tour.
