“The Italian heat of the Rolex FEI World Cup™ for me, is a not to be missed during the winter season. Jumping Verona is one of the best appointments in the international indoor calendar.” This is the opinion of Swedish rider Rolf Goran Bengtsson, recently crowned European show jumping champion in Spain, who is a regular guest of Jumping Verona and once again, as he declared immediately after winning his well-deserved gold medal, he will take the field at Italy’s premier indoor show.
Last year, he missed victory in the Rolex Grand Prix by a whisker: the first three riders in the ranking (all with double clear rounds) were separated by a mere thirty-two hundredths of a second. First: Jeroen Dubbeldam (BMC Van Grunsven Simon, 35.61). Second: Meredith Beerbaum (Shutterfly, 35.67). Third: Rolf Goran Bengtsson (Casall La Silla, 35.93).
