LONGINES FEI WORLD CUP QUALIFIER DRAMA HIGHLIGHTS DAY TWO AT ROYAL WEST
Oct. 21, 2016, Calgary, Alberta: Night Two was another show stopper for the 2016 Royal West featuring the prestigious $132,000 Longines FEI World Cup™ Jumping Calgary presented by pandaHAUS on Oct. 29.

The feature event was the $35,000 Friends of the Royal West, Perron & Partners Cup 1.45m on a challenging course described by designer Werner Deeg as “very technical”. The 32-horse field was whittled down to a jump-off featuring eight of the most exciting performers here this week.

In the end it came down to razor-thin margins as every horse but two ran clean. Hermelien with Ali Ramsay aboard prevailed setting down a blazing 33:01 seconds as the first rider out. The key was a quick pivot into jump number three. “I tried not to get caught pulling coming into it, that saved me a lot of time. I don’t know how lucky I am or how I got to have a horse like Hermelien. She tried her heart out. She’s incredible.”
