The opening leg of the FEI Jumping Ponies’ Trophy season 2021 was held at the World Cup-Herning show. 25 top motivated ponyriders met in the final on Sunday 24. October in the mail competition arena Boxen. The crowd cheered the young riders on, as 10 went clear and met in the nail biting jump-off.

Ponyriders from Nederland, Belgium, Norway, Sweden, Germany, and Denmark came face-to-face in the jump-off. Denmarks Magdalene Rose Mikkelsen and Attyrory Rebel put pressure on the competition, with a beautiful clear round and an amazing time of 30,57 sec. Her competitors tried hard to beat her time, but with no luck. Thea Gunleksen riding Parc Cookie for Norway was one of a total of three Norwegian riders in the jump-off came in second in 31,23 sec. followed by Germanys Jonna Esser/Catness in 31,34 sec.

Magdalene Rose Mikkelsen was over the moon with excitement after the victory in the FEI Jumping Ponies’ Trophy presented by Agria. The 15-year-old Dane ranks the Trophy-victory alongside her gold medal in the Danish Championship.

It was exiting to see the future generation of athletes compete on their ponies. Series such as the FEI Jumping Ponies’ Trophy represent a unique opportunity for our rising stars to gain standing and can act as a springboard for future representation on the international senior circuit.

“The ambition and strive for excellence exhibited by the young competitors can only be admired. It is thanks to the continuous efforts of organisers, volunteers, officials and sponsors that we are able to keep our sport moving forward and make the best out of challenging times,” states the FEI.
