Cross-country day has ended at Baborówko Horse Sale Show. Lars Christensson, the course designer, asked a lot of difficult questions.
The most difficult class of the show, the CCI4*-S, for the prize of Kuhn, took an unexpected turn when yesterday’s leader – Yoshiaki OIWA (JPN) riding BART L JRA had a refusal on the cross-country track. That meant that he dropped down to the 24th position after today’s trial. The new best score belongs to Nadine MARZAHL (GER) with VALENTINE 18. Second for now is Sophie LEUBE (GER) with JADORE MOI, and Dirk SCHRADE (GER) with DAJARA 4 sits in third.
The best Polish rider after dressage – Mateusz Kiempa (POL) with Lassban Radovix also had one refusal on the course and went over the optimum time, and he is now 25th in the class.
In the CCI3*-S for the prize of Lotto, Leonie KUHLMANN (GER) has kept her lead with HIDALGO 179. Second position belongs to Malin HANSEN – HOTOPP (GER) with QUIDDITCH K, and third – to Paulina MACIEJEWSKA (POL) with JANGCY L – the only pair to finish clear inside the time.
Marta ORŁOWSKA (POL) with GENESIS KG is the new best rider of the CCI2*-S for the prize of Duon. Anna SIEMER (GER) with DEIKE 22 dropped down from her leading position to the second place. Stephanie BÖHE (GER) is currently third with ASHANTI DE LA RIBIERE.
The final trials of the national ZK1* ended today. First place went to Sara ALGOTSSON OSTHOLT (SWE) riding DYNAMITE JACK. Marta ORŁOWSKA (POL) with NAOMI II C was second, and Weronika MIKOŁAJCZAK (POL) riding CZANOS took home the third place.
The riders for the national ZK L class had a break today, and tomorrow they will face the cross-country trial.
