Limburg, Belgium (June 25, 2017) – The name Jos Lansink has long been synonymous with the upper echelons of the show jumping world. Throughout his career he has enjoyed countless wins, many in the European and World Championship arenas and has competed in six Olympic Games, taking the Team Gold with the Dutch team in Barcelona in 1992. The Dutch native, who now rides for Belgium, started his own stable in 2004 and has been associated with many equine show jumping superstars: and his horses’ performance at the CSIO5* Rotterdam Longines FEI Nations Cup, held June 22-25, 2017, was no exception.
With rider Pieter Clemens at the reins, Horizon De Regor, a chestnut Belgian warmblood gelding by Obourg, turned in the top ride for Team Belgium with one down in the first round and a second round clear. Horizon’s stablemates also put in impressive performances, with For Cento going double clear and Chianti’s Champion having the last fence down in the 1.55M at Rotterdam.
