HSBC FEI European Eventing Championships Luhmuhlen 2011 DVD
Model Number: 802741016520
Great Britain were going for an unprecedented 9th successive team title at the 31st running of these championships held at Luhmuhlen in Northern Germany but came up against a host nation team in irresistible form which swept all before them.
Germany dominated the Dressage leaderboard with five in the top ten, including World Champion Michael Jung and La Bisthetique Sam, the favourites for the individual title. He lay in second behind team mate Ingrid Klimke and Butts Abraxxas and they maintained their scores and positions after cross country with faultless rounds. However in the show jumping whilst the World Champion humped the inevitable clear round Ingrid suffered the agonies of 6 poles down to let in team mate Sandra Auffarth for Silver and Individual rider Frank Ostholt for the Bronze to complete a German clean sweep.
Great Britain also relinquished Silver medal position to the French in the show jumping after Mary King and Imperial Cavalier crashed out of the competition in the Cross-Country and each of her team mates had one down in the show jumping finale.
Extensive Cross-Country coverage is sandwiched between dressage and show jumping highlights.
