Following the dressage and the trail competition – in which riding with caution and precision was essential – the working equitation superstars today (20th September) took part in the “grand finale”. In the speed trail competition, stars from Austria, Portugal, Germany and France – dressed in the traditional outfits of their respective countries – went full steam ahead and received rapturous applause from spectators for their efforts.
Two-time vice-world champion Mihai Maldea (GER) recorded the best time (121.58 seconds) with Candy, with Claire Moucadel (FRA) coming second on Atila (135.88 seconds). Riding Trinco, world and European champion Bruno Pica de Conceicao (POR) followed closely behind in third (135.98 seconds). Austria’s Nina Raidl (Vienna) took sixth place in the final competition featuring the “workers” (204.53 seconds).
