As the world’s only team Eventing series, the FEI Nations Cup Eventing Series comprises of eight events in eight different locations. Seven of the events are staged in Europe, and one is held in the USA.

Team GBR competed at seven of the events this series, taking gold at The Plains, USA and Waregem, Belgium. Britain also managed to clinch runner up spots at Strzegom in Poland, Millstreet in Ireland, and the final phase at Boekelo, The Netherlands.


Before Boekelo, Britain were trailing by ten points, making the final phase a nail-biting watch. The team who headed out to Boekolo consisted of Alexander Bragg with Sarah Hughes’ Shannondale Percy, Laura Collett and her ride London 52, Pippa Funnell and S.H.E Eventing AB’s Maybach, and Izzy Taylor with Direct Cassino, owned by Jocelyn Riley and herself. 

Finishing with a Team Silver, individual placing were also outstanding. Laura Collett just missed out on first place, trailing by 2.10 points, to Germany’s Julia Krajewski who took gold with 22.6 points. Overwhelmed by London 52’s performance in his first CCI***, Laura Collett gushed on social media;

I really am the luckiest girl in the world. London 52 jumped the most awesome clear SJ to finish in his first CCI*** at Boekelo. He is pure class and one VERY special horse for the future.”

Alexander Bragg and Shannondale Percy finished in 11th, Pippa Funnell and Maybach in 14th, and Izzy Taylor and Direct Cassino in 32nd.
