Sweden – with Henrik von Eckermann with King Edward, Malin Baryard-Johnsson with H&M Indiana, Angelie von Essen with Alcapone des Carmille and Rolf-Göran Bengtsson with Ermindo W - took the fourth place in the Longines FEI Nations Cup Final in Barcelona last weekend. It was only 0.95 seconds that stopped them from ending on the podium as third placed. The third place went instead to Belgium that also finished on a total of four faults but with a slightly faster time. Ireland ended second and the winning team was from the Netherlands.
Ermindo W jumped fantastic in both of the 1.60m rounds, but got a fault on a yellow vertical in the first round and got into some troubles in the difficult triple combination on the very last line in the second round to end with the b- and c-elements down.
