2018. Madrid CSI 5 Six-Bar Johan-Sebastian Gulliksen & Arakorn Oxersport.jpg

The €20,000 Six-Bar IFEMA  Trophy CSI5 */CSI 2 * was in charge of closing the first day of competition of the VI edition of IFEMA Madrid Horse Week CSI 5*. This power class is one of the public favorites, since it is filled with tension and enthusiasm. Both fans of this sport and those who only look for entertainment, celebrate with the riders every round they pass without fault.

This year, the event was overflowing with adrenaline, which ended with a tie between the Denis Lynch (IRL) riding All Star (Acantus Gk x Casander) and the Johan Sebastian Gulliksen (NOR)  riding Arakon (Cantos x Damiro). Both pairs made an exceptional performance in a long class that lasted more than an hour, something unusual for a class of these characteristics. After the third jump-off, and having overcome the 1.95-meter obstacle without a failure, both riders decided to call it a tie and divide the prize.

Behind them, Laura Renwick (GBR) and Dublin V finished in fourth place (Vigaro x Calvados), Peder Fredricson (SWE) and the Spanish rider Ismael García Roque (ESP) who fought until the end.
