This is Raimondo d’Inzeo riding Fritz Thiedemann’s Meteor in the final of the World Championships in Aachen 1956. Just like today the top four riders jumped each others horses in the final. Raimondo won the title after being the only one to jump clear (except for 1,75 time faults) on all four horses. The result:
1. Raimondo d’Inzeo (ITA) - Merano
2. Francisco Goyoaga (ESP) - Fahnenkönig
3. Fritz Thiedemann (FRG) - Meteor
4. Carlos Delia (ARG) - Discutido
