New Zealand’s Jonelle Price and Grovine de Reve jumped clear with only 0.4 time faults which was good enough for third in the CCI5* division right behind her husband Tim, who took second on Xavier Faer.

The U.S.A.’s Boyd Martin and On Cue, who were second after cross-country, had an unfortunate rail down to drop them to fourth place, still a good result for a young mare in her first CCI5*.

Doug Payne (USA) and Vandiver on the CCI5* cross-country. They took 12th in the division. Photo by Allen MacMillan. Great Britain’s Harry Meade rode Superstition around the CCI5* course late in the order when the rain had diminished the quality of the footing and the weather was cold and damp. Still, the pair made the time and had no jumping penalties on cross-country. A rail in show jumping cost them a place and they finished fifth. Photo by Allen MacMillan.
