17 teams will participate in the event that has been moved to tomorrow due to extreme weather conditions.
The British rider, Laura Renwick wins the two big 1.45m classes today with Dublin V and Dollar VI
As a consequence of torrential rain here in Vejer today it was decided to hold the Nations Cup tomorrow, on the 28th Nov at 09.30 giving the event all day in case rain holds up jumping at any time. This is possible due to the large number of arenas here at the Sunshine Tour and everyone involved will work to ensure that the best possible conditions will be maintained for the event to go ahead. The 17 teams were able to walk the course today which was designed by Javier Trenor and is a 1.45m track with 12 jumps and 15 obstacles including a double and a treble. The team lists can be seen both on our web site and the Sunshine Tour app. The Nations Cup rounds will also count as an Olympic qualifier for Tokyo 2021 and the top 30 riders will qualify for the Big Grand Prix that will be held here on Sunday.
Today’s CSI2* 1.20 and 1.30m classes have been moved to Sunday. Today’s 1.10m class has been cancelled with the prize money being added to tomorrow's class. The CSIYH* 5yr old will also be held on Sunday.
