The participating nations at the Longines CSIO Schweiz in St. Gallen are select. They are lead by the Netherlands, the Team World Champion and defending champion of the Furusiyya FEI Nations CupTM. Also France, Silver Medallist at the World Championships last year in their country, is competing. Great Britain is the Olympic and European Champion and won in the last two years in St. Gallen. Of course they are here again. The three-time World-Champion and even seven-time European Champion naturally wants to win the Nations Cup of Switzerland for the 20st time: the German team. Also the participating teams from Italy, Ireland and Belgium have won the Nations Cup in Switzerland before. A big challenge is on our Swiss team. According to Chef d’Equipe Andy Kistler a ranking in the top three is their goal at the home tournament.
