The World Cup Final in jumping and dressage is taking place in Riyadh. In the first leg of the jumping, IS-Minka, ridden by Steve Guerdat, has made a good start. IS-Minka is a daughter of Mylord Carthago.

A total of 34 combinations participated in the first leg of the World Cup Final, with three KWPN horses taking part and no Dutch riders. Henrik von Eckermann, based in Limburg, immediately lived up to his favorite role by finishing faultlessly in the fastest time with King Edward (by Edward), earning himself an optimal position and €46,000 for the next leg. Hans-Dieter Dreher finished third with Elysium, a descendant of Zirocco Blue VDL. Two offspring of Zirocco Blue VDL are competing in this World Cup Final; under Devin Ryan, the experienced KWPN horse Eddie Blue (out of Silvana keur prest by Marlon, breeder Jan Honcoop from Chaam) placed 25th with just one jumping fault, resulting in three penalty seconds in this speed leg.

The best result by a KWPN horse was achieved by IS-Minka (Mylord Carthago out of Weyminka prest by Quite Easy I, breeder the late Jopie Kappert from Geesteren) ridden by Steve Guerdat. Earlier this season, they won the World Cup competition in Bordeaux. Despite a time that would have been good enough for fourth place, they knocked down one rail, dropping them to ninth place. The 2019 World Cup Final winner, Alamo (Ukato out of Mariona ster sport-spr prest by Equador, breeder Daan Nanning), ridden by Abdullah Alsharbatly, finished 28th. They also had faults. Alamo achieved great success with Steve Guerdat, who now has another fantastic KWPN horse under his saddle with IS-Minka.
