- Five members of the Hermès U.S. Show Jumping Short List for the 2014 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games qualified for the Rolex Grand Prix of Aachenon Sunday and the U.S. horses and riders held their own with some of the best in the world. Kent Farrington led the way with a double clear aboard Voyeur. In the jump-off, he and Amalaya Investments' 12-year-old Dutch Warmblood gelding were excruciatingly close. Though they had the fastest time in the jump-off, a rail down on the very last fence made them settle for second place, but, nonetheless, a spectacular finish. Not far behind Farrington, Lauren Hough finished fifth with Ohlala. She and The Ohlala Group's 10-year-old Swedish Warmblood mare were also double clear, moving on to the jump-off, but had two rails and a time of 44.71.

Afterward, Voyeur was awarded the Halla Award, given to the "Best Horse of the Show."

The other three Short List members performed well over a top track. Lucy Davis (Los Angeles, Calif.) and Barron Old Oak Farm's 10-year-old Belgian Warmblood gelding had four faults in round one but were the fastest clear in round two, ending up with a sixth-place finish. The 11th-place finisher was Margie Engle (Wellington, Fla.) and Royce. She and Elm Rock Partners LLC' 10-year-old Oldenburg stallion had a clear first round but had four faults in the second. Reed Kessler (Lexington, Ky.) and Cylana had eight faults in round one but had great showings throughout the CHIO Aachen.

"What great ending to a great week and there is no better place to do it than at Aachen," Chef d'Equipe Robert Ridland enthusiastically stated. "This is where the U.S. last won the World Championships in 1996, and with any luck it's an indicator of what we can do this year in Normandy!"

Top honors in the Rolex Grand Prix of Aachen went to Christian Ahlmann (GER) and Codex One after jumping three clear rounds with a time of 46.59.
