Daniel Deusser of Germany won the ninth leg of the International Equestrian Federation (FEI) Jumping World Cup Western European League event in the Belgian city of Mechelen.
The 38-year-old finished the course at Nekkerhal in 41.37sec, managing to complete it without his horse, Killer Queen VDM, hitting a fence.
"She has done a few amazing things already and she’s still only nine-years-old," said Deusser.
"From year to year she steps up and gets better and better, I just need to improve her dressage some more because she has huge potential for the future - she’s a very exciting horse!"
In second was Pius Schwizer of Switzerland on Cortney Cox, recording a time of 44.02.
