Lucy Davis and True Love win the 2009 European Youngster Cup at CSI Frankfurt in Germany.

FRANKFURT, Germany — Lucy Davis, 17, of Los Angeles jumped clear when it mattered most in the European Youngster Cup at CSI Frankfurt in Germany from Dec. 17-20, 2009, to win the prestigious competition with the only clear round in the final round.

Riding True Love, a 13-year-old Belgian Warmblood owned by Old Oak Farm, Davis jumped clear in the preliminary round, with the eighth fastest time, and then had one fence down in the next round. Her score was good enough to make the final, which featured the top 16 after the first two rounds.

Davis aboard True Love then returned to the ring on Dec. 20 for the finals, and jumped the only clear round to be crowned champion.

She secured a spot in the competition with her second place finish at the 2009 Adequan FEI North American Junior/Young Rider Championships. Davis was the sole American rider to take on the Europeans after the top three riders at NAJYRC received invitations. The Europeans qualified through a series of competitions over the summer, and 27 of the best Under 25 riders started the Championship Final.
