Tomorrow the Nations Cup comes to Montenmedio with 17 Teams set to participate

Tomorrow the Nations Cup comes to Montenmedio with 17 Teams set to participate

The only Nations Cup round in Spain this year will be held here in Cadiz province, at the Sunshine Tour site


The 27th of Nov 2020 is the date that 17 teams confront each other in the Showjumping Nations Cup here at Montenmedio.  The event is part of the CSIO3* show that its already in full swing and on its sixth and final week of our Autumn Tour.


Tomorrow the teams will jump a first round over a course designed by an internationally qualified designer.  The top eight teams after this round will pass on to the final round where the final placings will be decided.  The host country’s team is made up of Eduardo Álvarez Aznar, who is the team’s lynchpin with the most experience;  Armando Trapote who has taken part in two other Nations Cup rounds;  Carlos López-Fanjul who has four Nations Cup rounds under his belt and first timer, Mariano Martínez-Bastida.


This is the first time that the organising team here at the Sunshine Tour has been privileged to hold the Nations cup and it will be the only round held in Spain this year, as both the CSIO in Gijón and the Final in Barcelona were cancelled earlier in the season.


The Nations Cup without a doubt is always a spectacular competition, however due to the current health crisis, the event is held behind closed doors with no public access but you can stream it live and for free to support your team, on the Sunshine Tour official website www.sunshinetour.net.


Running alongside this event is the CSIO3* show with 15 classes, including three Ranking classes and on Sunday 29th Nov, another qualifier for the Tokyo Olympics 2021.

The Young Horse CSI2* is also running for 5,6 and 7yr old horses.  In total 600 horses will be taking to the arenas over the course of this week’s competition and almost 220,000€ of prize money will be won.


With amazing international riders taking part like Peder Fredricson and Henrik Von Eckermann, for Sweden; Marlon Modolo Zanotelli for Brasil and Maikel Van del Vleuten, for the Netherlands; all of whom are ranked in the top 20 of the FEI Longines Rankings; Laura Renwick (GBR), Pedro Veniss (BRA), Olivier Robert (FRA) and Gregory Wathelet (BEL) to mention just a few, we can promise to witness some fabulous jumping here over the following days.
