Endurance and event riders prep for the insanity to begin tomorrow, and a para-dressage horse with an um, interesting name gets first.
- Charlotte Dujardin and VALEGRO (Great Britain)
- Helen Langehanenberg and DAMON HILL (Germany)
- Kristina Sprehe and DESPERADOS (Germany)
- Adelinde Cornelissen and JERICH PARZIVAL (Netherlands)
- Tinne Vilhelmson Silfvén and DON AURELLIO (Sweden)
Charlotte and Valegro, as usual, stole the show.
Bella Rose, Isabell Werth’s horse who was scratched due to a sore hoof sole, appears to be improving. Just bad timing on that injury!
Grade Ib Individual (round 2)
- Lee Pearson and ZION (Great Britain)
- Pepo Puch and FINE FEELING (Austria)
- Nicole Den Dulk and WALLACE (Netherlands)
- Katja Karjalainen and WOIKOSKI DOUBLE U (Finland)
- Silvia Veratti and ZADOK (Italy)
- Hannelore Brenner and WOMEN OF THE WORLD (Germany)
- Sanne Voets and VEDET (Netherlands)
Annika Lykke Risum and Aros a Fenris (Denmark)
- Susanne Jensby Sunesen and Thy’s Que Faire (Denmark)
- Ann Cathrin Lubbe and PORSBORGGAARDENS DONATELL (Norway)
Did you catch that? Hannelore Brenner rode Women of the World for Germany, winning first in the Grade III para-dressage today.
I can die happy.
Endurance horses got their vet check this morning, and they’ll start their 160 km trek tomorrow.
The jog-up for eventing took place this morning–just one horse withdrew, Ludwig Svennerstal’s Alexander. Expect a field of 98 for the dressage starting tomorrow.
Plus one hungry chinchilla.
