From September 17 to 19, all the best swiss-bred horses were on the ring to win a title in their category. Jumping horses, dressage horses, and foals followed each other on the course of the Institut Equestre National d’Avenches (IENA: Swiss National Equestrian Centre).

In the final of the seven- and eight-year-old Superpromotion class, run over a 1m40 class, victory went to Alain Jufer. The Jurassien, now based in Elgg (ZH) with his friend Steve Guerdat, was riding Kosimo MM, a stallion son of Kannan, owned by Marlis Mühlebach. Second place went to Leopold des Laves CH, a son of Lord Fantasy KWG and Karondo v Schlösslihof KB, ridden by the renowned course builder Gérard Lachat, chef de piste at the CHI Geneva.
