Finale in Barcelona

Although Austria only took part in four of the five possible Nations Cup competitions, the team was third in Europe Division 2. As one of the top 18 countries in the world, it thus went through to the final of the 2013 Furusiyya FEI Nations Cup™ Jumping. The event was held in beautiful autumn weather in Barcelona (ESP) from 26 to 29 September. GLOCK rider Dieter Köfler and GLOCK’s Prince de Vaux were also there. They got off to a great start with a clear round in the 1.45 m Coca Cola Trophy for eleventh place.  

In the 1.60 m qualifier for the final of the Furusiyya FEI Nations Cup™ Jumping, Team Austria with GLOCK rider Dieter Köfler, Thomas Frühmann, Julia Kayser and Stefan Eder was not so lucky in the Spanish sun. Having finished 15th, the riders had to prove themselves in the consolation final. Here Austria secured fourth with a good last-round performance, giving them 12th place overall in the final of the top 18 nations.
