The Land Rover U.S. Eventing Team of Will Coleman and Off The Record, Sydney Elliott and QC Diamantaire, Ariel Grald and Leamore Master Plan, and Tamie Smith and Mai Baum took second place in the FEI Eventing Nations Cup – the highest result by a U.S. team at the prestigious event.

Today German eventer Ingrid Klimke became the first rider to win the eventing at the CHIO Aachen three times: in 2015 with SAP Escada, in 2017 with SAP Hale Bob OLD, and again today with SAP Hale Bob OLD. British rider Laura Collett was the overnight leader on London 52, but a runout at the final combination on course, the Stawag Complex, cost them the win.
With the home crowd cheering them on, German riders owned the top placings after the dressage phase of the CCIO4*-S at the CHIO Aachen World Equestrian Festival in Germany. The second-to-last horse and rider to enter the Deutsche Bank Stadium, Ingrid Klimke and the 2004 Oldenburg gelding SAP Hale Bob OLD (Helikon XX x Noble Champion) laid down a 20.7 to top the field in a super competitive dressage phase, closely followed by Michael Klimke and fischerChipmunk FRH with 21.5.
