It was busy with horses on the competition grounds this afternoon. Two inspection lanes had been laid down because about 300 horses had to be inspected.
Only 2 horses turned out to be ‘not fit to compete’. They belong to pair driver Ugo Cei (Italy) and four-in-hand- driver Mark Carruthers (Great Britain). Both competitors can still compete because they have a spare horse.
This evening the competition was officially opened bij Mieke van Tergouw and TD Vilmos Jambor, with a drink for all competitors in the big tent.
The competition starts tomorrow. From 8.30 to 17.30 the pairs drive their dressage test in the main arena. At the end of the first day of the competition, everyone is welcome at the foam party at Gastro Bar Riant.
