It was an exciting competition in the international CDI4* Prix St. Georges. No fewer than five combinations scored well above the 70% in this PSG. The German rider Ann-Christin Wienkamp managed to convince two of the five judges with her Nymphenburg’s First Choice (by Fidertanz). The combination scored with the appuyement that only got eights. The harmony between horse and rider was also appreciated by the jury. With a total of 72.235%, the combination stayed well ahead of the British rider, Charlotte Fry with Fendi T. Together with the nine-year Negro son, the British collected a total score of 71.735%.
Both Freddy Leyman and Dutch Janine van Twist placed the combination at the first place. The combination drove a very steady test in which only the half pirouette was slightly less well finished.
In front of his own audience Thibault Vandenberghe took the third place with his Santiago Song (Sir Donnerhall I). A very consistent performance resulted in a total score of 71.118%.
The audience favorite, Jorinde Verwimp finished the top five with her Kastar Hof Ter Zeedycke D’12 (70.765%).
