SVAG FEI WRC - Team Competition 2016
SVAG FEI WRC 2016 INDIV. COMPETITION Go 1
As often in sports, everything was coming down to the very last moment. Yesterday in the Senior Riders Team Competition, it was exactly like this. The grand finale was approaching and the first big chance for Germany was in the hands of Grisha Ludwig and Gwhiz Im Smart, owned by Momo & Amy.
A score of 221 was another high score which put Germany with a total 660 into a secure second place with the option for the gold medal. There was only one more name on the draw list: Bernard Fonck, NRHA Million Dollar Rider and current leader in the NRHA World Ranking, who could turn the table. And he did!
The owners of Smart N Sparkin, 7 Heaven Reining Horses, were able to feel like in heaven: With a sensational run the Belgian and his 8 year old stud closed the competition with the high score of the day 222 and grabbed the gold medal for Belgium in the very last minute, just 1.5 points ahead of Germany.
What happened up until that run was the following: At exactly 14:00h Paolo Fabbri from Italy with Lenas Drawin His Gun started off the first day of the show. An early trend was set around the middle of the second drag time: the Italian Pierluigi Chioldo riding the ten year old stud RS Polyphemus Jac, owned by Piet Mestdagh, scored a 216. Only a few minutes later der german Alexander Ripper, on board of Hollys Electricspark, a nine year old stud owned by Christian and Rosi Wagner, knocked him out of the lead with a score of 218.5.
