ODENSE, Denmark, Oct. 18, 2015–Edward Gal on Glock’s Voice won the World Cup Grand Prix Freestyle Sunday to kick off the 2015/16 Western European League that will end at the Final in Gothenburg, Sweden next March.

Edward, the 2010 champion on Totilas, and the 13-year-old black KWPN stallion that was his Netherlands team World Games mount in 2014 scored 78.800 per cent for the win.

Anna Kasprzak, the hometown favorite returning to competition for the first time being injured at the European Championships two months ago, placed second on Donnperignon on 77.100 per cent.

Fellow Dane Agnete Kirk Thinggaard on JoJo AZ placed third on 76.250 per cent.

Edward said Voice was “a little nervous” in their first indoor show of the season and joked that the horse probably “thought he was at a stallion licensing.”

“The atmosphere in the stands got to the horse, and he wasn’t as smooth as he can be,” Edward said. “Sometimes he reacts weirdly, but you know sometimes the weird horses are the good ones!

”With performances like that, sometimes you win, and sometimes you lose.”

The victory at this first of nine Western European World Cup qualifiers gave Edward the maximum of 20 points while Anna picked up 17 points and Agnete 15.

Current World Cup champion and world No. 1 Valegro ridden by Charlotte Dujardin will not seek a third straight World Cup title.

Another horse and rider will become individual champion for the first time when the annual individual world championship is staged in Gothenburg next March.

The schedule of the Western European League, one of four geographic divisions, launched at Odense this weekend and includes Lyon, Stuttgart, Stockholm, Salzburg, London, Amsterdam, Neumünster and ‘s-Hertogenbosch.before the Final next March.

The Central European League of 10 competitions wrapped up this weekend at Kaposvár, Hungary. The Pacific League’s four qualifiers in Australia end with the Sydney CDI next week but the single representative is determined by the only league final that will be held in December.

The North American League has the most events with 12–two in Canada and 10 in the United States–and is the only league to use a formula of the average of the best two Freestyle scores. The NAL is more than half over but the most competitive qualifiers are to come with three in Wellington, Florida and two in Burbank, California in January and February.
