Laura Kraut Leads Nations Cup Series

The FEI has announced that Laura Kraut currently heads the Leading Rider list for the Samsung Nations Cup series thanks to her double clear round in Lucerne, Switzerland on Sunday, June 2nd aboard Liberty (Libero - Bianca, by Nimmerdor), an 11-year-old Dutch Warmblood owned by the Summit Group. The 37- year-old Wisconsin-based rider was one of only three competitors to achieve double clear rounds in this hotly contested competition. Lucerne was the third European CSIO in which Kraut and other team members recently competed. Kraut also finished 2nd in the Grand Prix of Rome aboard the 11-year-old Dutch Warmblood gelding Anthem (Dutchboy - Ecvalan, by Triton), owned by the Summit Syndicate, on May 26th just behind compatriot Clare Bronfman.

The Leading Horse is currently Carling King (Clover Hill - Gortnageer Star, by Chair Lift), owned by Kindle Hill Affiliates of Gwynedd Valley, Pennsylvania and ridden by Kevin Babington (IRL), who is based in the United States when not competing internationally.
