DVD WEG Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games 2014 Normandy Eventing
Relive the best of the 2014 Normandy WEG Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games with this official DVD of the eventing competition.
The team competition always looked to be Germany’s to take on paper but when reigning individual Champion Michael Jung could only ride his 3rd string horse, the lovely mare Fischerrocana, the other Nations must have hoped the Champion might not be as powerful and had left the door slightly ajar after the Cross-Country.
However, immaculate performances in the final show jumping by the Germans confirmed their World No 1 team status and also resulted in Sandra Auffarth pipping team mate Michael Jung for the individual Gold Medal. Britain’s William Fox-Pitt led the British challenge on the stallion Chilli Morning and was the overnight leader after the Cross-Country but could not jump the necessary clear round to win his first World title although held onto bronze.
