CHIO Aachen 2009 - Day 3 Report

June 26th to July 5th

Day Three  Report  by Kelly Bauer (Germany)

Day Three of the Dressage and Eventing action in Aachen…

Friday was a relaxed day for the dressage horses and riders, with only the Lindt CDI Grand Prix Special scheduled for the evening in the CDI and CDIO Dressage program.

The Deutsche Bank Dressage stadium was the location for the dressage phase of the eventing.

The winner of which was Betina Hoy from Germany riding Ringwood Cockatoo with a score of 80.38%.

Aussie Lady Lucinda Fredericks Headley Britannia were 3rd with a score of 72.31%

Clayton Fredericks is competing two horses in Aachen. With The Frog he finished 17th and with Mr Miller 2 he finished up in 23rd.

 The afternoon event in the Deutsche Bank Stadium saw the battle of the Quadrille teams (below). This is an amazing event where teams of four choreograph a test somewhat like a Kur, where they are scored on their music, technicality and choreography. It was a great warm up event for the Grand Prix Special, and it was really amazing to watch!

Lindt-Grand Prix Spécial CDI

As the sun began to set and the lights were just warming up over the arena, the Lindt Grand Prix Special horses were being strutting their stuff in the warm up arenas. It was to be another very interesting, first session of Dressage under lights. With 26,000 spectators rolling through the gates throughout the day… both the dressage and jumping stadiums were almost full.

It was Nathalie Zu Sayn-Wittgenstein and Rigoletto who took the crown. The scored 71.917% and made this their second title in the CDI series of Aachen.

2nd went to the Japanese rider Hiroshi Hoketsu and his chestnut mare Whisper. They scored 71.208%

3rd went to the Swedish rider Tinne Vilhelmson-Silfven and Favorit. I really liked this horse in his first test and was keen to see how he would cope in the big arena with the lights. He started out tense and it was somewhat of a crooked centre line, but as with their other test, this horse took comfort in his rider. She was able to help him to settle and after a turbulent start, settled into a lovely test. They scored 69.542%
