Connaught and Mohamed Talaat disqualified

Following the first round of the Longines FEI World Cup Jumping Final at Gothenburg, the horse Connaught ridden bei Mohamed Talaat (EGY) was found to have blood on its offside (right) flank at the post-competition boot and bandage control. The FEI Steward reported the issue to the Ground Jury and the horse was disqualified from the competition under Article 242.3.1 of the FEI Jumping Rules.

The disqualification means that Mohamed Talaat and Connaught will take no further part in the Longines FEI World Cup Final but, subject to veterinary approval, will be eligible to participate in other competitions at the Gothenburg Horse Show.
