This special episode, sponsored by Cosequin®, features the top three finishers of the $450,000 Longines FEI Jumping World Cup™ Washington CSI5*. Katie Dinan (USA) and Brego R’N B placed first. Rene Dittmer (GER) and Corsica X placed second. And Devin Ryan (USA) and Eddie Blue placed third. The conversation comes from the press conference following the competition, part of the 2023 Washington International Horse Show.
This class is one of eight qualifiers for the Longines FEI Jumping World Cup™ Final’s North American League. The qualifiers narrow down the riders from North America who will compete in the 2024 Longines FEI Jumping World Cup™ Final, April 16-20, 2024, in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
The Top Three
The Washington International Horse Show was held October 23-29, 2023, at Prince George’s Equestrian Center in Upper Marlboro, Maryland. In the press conference, Dinan, who charged through the jump-off with Brego R’N B, talks about winning their first five-star class. She shares how Brego had “wings” over the last fence in the jump-off. Practical Horseman’s Instagram page has a reel of them over that oxer.
Second-place finisher Dittmer was on fire during the week. He and Corsica won the $78,000 FEI Welcome Stake on Thursday night. Also on Thursday night, Dittmer and Burlington Riverland won the $40,000 Accumulator Costume Class. And on Friday night, that pair placed fifth in the $78,000 Speed Final.
Finally, third-place finisher Ryan chats about his longtime partner, Eddie Blue and the course, which was designed by Bernardo Cabral.
