World Number One Peder Fredricson Secures CSI5* Grand Prix win at Jump Saudi

December, 18 2021

His Highness Prince Fahd bin Jalawi bin Abdulaziz bin Musaed, Vice-President of the Saudi Olympic and Paralympic Committee, crowned the Swedish jockey Peder Fredricson, current world number 1 first place with Hansson WL.

Fredricson was the only double clear of the CSI5* Grand Prix and finished 25 milliseconds ahead of Saudi jockey Kamal Bahamdan on Jack van het Dennehof in a time of 41.04 seconds but an agonising 4 faults in the jump-off.

Dutch combination Emile Tacken and Cas were the only other pair to make it through to the jump-off. They finished in bronze position after a costly fault early on and the 1.55m upright by the entrance of the arena to finish with a time of 42.18 seconds.

As the sunset over Riyadh, the magical three days of stunning show jumping competition came to a close for the final time this year. It was a fairytale ending for Peder Fredricson as fans and spectators now look ahead to 2022.

Full replays of all the classes are available for free on the Jump Saudi website.
