Nathan Bud and his Holsteiner stallion by Casall, Cashpaid J&F, obtained the second place after a clear round in 30.29 sec. The third place was for the French rider Guillaume Roland Billecart and Diacan PS (s. Diarado) – clear in 30.50 sec.
Dirk Demeersman also received a 500€ BWFA voucher from the hands of Christophe De Brabander.
