Richie Moloney and Alsvid win the Accumulator Class at the 2015 CP National Horse Show on October 30.
Popeye the Sailor Man, also known as Irish show jumper Richie Moloney, took first place on Friday night’s Accumulator Class sponsored by Salamander Resort at the CP National Horse Show.
To add to the fun and celebrate Halloween, riders dressed in costume for the class. Take a look at some of the creative costumes in the video below.
Eight riders completed the course and the higher joker fence for a total score of 65. The final placings among those riders was determined by time. Ireland’s Richie Moloney took first place with Alsvid. Belgium’s Philippaerts brothers rounded out the top three: Nicola—in costume as a doctor—and H&M Harley Van de Bisschop finished in second, and Olivier—dressed as the Easter bunny—with H&M Legend of Love in third.
