The Mercedes-Benz Nations‘ Cup at the CHIO Aachen is one of the most prestigious competitions on the international equestrian sport circuit. The USA will be putting forward a strong team for this year’s team jumping competition on Thursday evening, July 17, 2014. As the American equipe chef, Robert Ridland, announced in an interview with the Show Director, Frank Kemperman.
The USA did not compete at the CHIO Aachen for the last two years. “The best teams in the world, plus an incredible floodlit atmosphere in front of 40,000 spectators in the sold-out stadium – the Mercedes-Benz Nations‘ Cup is undisputedly one of the highlights of the CHIO Aachen,” commented Kemperman.
Last year the Netherlands claimed the victory ahead of Belgium and Otto Becker’s team from Germany finished third. The last victory of the German team was in the year 2008.
