What a weekend for German pony dressage rider Raphael Netz! After a second place on the opening day and Friday’s win, the 16-year-old national team rider was again able to prevail with his ten-year-old stallion Schierensees Don’t Do It in today’s Österreichische Campagnereiter pony trophy final. His jaunty freestyle gained him scores of up to 75.500% in the technical A-mark, his artistic expression got him as high as 80.000% in the B-mark, and a total judges’ score of 76.292% put him unanimously in the number one spot. “It was amazing to be able to ride here in front of such a tremendous crowd. Thank you for this wonderful event!” beamed the winner in his interview with Christian Plettenberg afterwards.
Current team European champion Rebecca Bell (GBR) took second place in today’s musical freestyle for her performance with Rhineland mare Valido’s Sunshine (74.375%). Representing Germany, Liselott Marie Linsenhoff took third with Golden Girl (73.417%). Nicola Louise Ahorner (Vienna) finishing fourth (72.417%) with Nice Blue Eyes meant that Austria narrowly missed out on the podium, whilst Daria Hohenwarter (Tirol) was sixth with Candyman 109 (69.792%).
