Kraut Helps U.S. Team to Gold Medal in Nations Cup Jumping By Kentucky Equine Research Staff · August 3, 2015
The United States show jumping team claimed victory in the 100th Nations Cup of Germany in mid-July. The CSIO5* international event was held in Mannheim, Germany.
Laura Kraut, an Olympic veteran, was a member of the all-female team representing the U.S. With eight teams entered, the U.S. team jumped third in the Round One starting order. Kraut was the first rider for the team and had one rail down on Nouvelle. Round Two was again led by Kraut and this time she put in a clean trip. After a three-way tie among the U.S., Belgium, and Germany was broken with a shortened jumping course, the U.S. team stood in first place. Belgium claimed second place, and Germany finished third.
To guarantee her horses have the nutritional foundation they need to excel in top-level competitions, Kraut uses feeds from the Legends line produced by Southern States. Feeds in this product line are formulated to include micronutrient vitamin and trace mineral premixes designed by Kentucky Equine Research.
