Paris-April 14

Irish show jumper Denis Lynch was eliminated in the second leg of the Longines FEI World Cup Jumping Final after blood was found on his horse’s side. “All Star 5, the horse ridden by Ireland’s Denis Lynch, has been eliminated under FEI jumping rule article 241.3.3 after blood was found on the horse’s flanks in the post competition check,” read a statement from the show organizers.” All Star 5 is a 15-year-old Hanoverian gelding (Argentinus-April Love ZH, Alme).

“Elimination under article 241.3.3 and article 241.3.31 does not imply that there was any intent to injure the horse, but it is crucial that the rules are enforced in order to ensure that horse welfare is protected,” the statement continued.

Lynch placed 27th in the first leg of the final with two rails and had another two rails in the second leg.
