:NED Gal scores under 70% :yikes: That is a shocker, but Dutch dressage seems to be rocketing downwards very rapidly.

 

Do you have any idea why it seems to be going that way? I'm rather surprised to see Kirk do better than 3 dutch riders!

In general judges started prioritizing harmony between horse and rider, and started deducting more points for any tension. And Dutch riders seem to struggle with that more often than the others. Gal's horse was already pretty tense in the first round, but today they also had quite a few mistakes.

 

Patrick and Diederik didn't score too badly, for their standards. They are pretty much on-par with Agnete this year, however Agnete rectified her mistakes from the first day and scored really well.

:DEN Anna Kasprzak & Donnperignon qualify for the freestyle once again. That's 6th championships in a row. :yes

 

2012 Olympics

2013 Europeans

2014 Worlds

2015 Europeans

2016 Olympics

2017 Europeans

 

And this is perhaps the last championship for Donnperignon.

Isabell Werth goes very high. :bowdown:

 

Believe it or not, this might be the first individual gold for Germany since 2007 (at any Europeans/Worlds/Olympics).

Sonke 82%, one mistake perhaps cost him the gold. But first individual medal for him.

 

Cathrine and Sonke are so young and so good. :d

Absolutely crazy to see :SWE and :DEN having all of their 4 riders within top 15, not even Germany has that. :bowdown:

 

So it's :GER Werth, :GER Rothenberger, :DEN Dufour that get the first set of individual medals. First individual medal for Denmark since Anne Grethe Jensen era. :d
