As Sandra Auffarth and her flying chestnut Opgun Louvo galloped into the main arena at the end of Cross Country, the crowd burst into cheers, knowing that she had clinched victory for Germany with her foot-perfect round eight seconds inside the optimum time.
Auffarth, who also took the individual honors, and her team mate Michael Jung on La Biosthetique Sam FBW, third, were two out of only three riders to achieve the optimum Cross Country time on the hot, sunny day. Their two horses, the individual gold and silver medalists at the London 2012 Olympic Games, look to be certainties for the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games 2014 in Normandy (FRA) next month.
