Just catching up with the Day 1 of the European Dressage Championships.

 

What a test for :LTU Vanagaite. :hyper: "Only" 66% today, but there is so much more in the bag with more practice. She was trending at 71-72% for a good while.

Damn impressive score by Henri Ruoste! :FIN

Too bad his horse had an off day in Tokyo (spooked at a camera person).

 

Finland is having a nuts championships across the board. Their team result will smash their usual placing (12th-14th).

:GER Germany gold, :GBRGee Bee silver, :DEN Denmark bronze. GB getting overscored again and again, but nothing new here. I guess that lottery funding must be going straight into judges pockets. Hughes was awarded 74% for a sloppy test worth of maybe 69%.

 

Dufour dropped the silver for Denmark on her own though (spook coming out of pirouette), much like she did at Rotterdam 2019 (and possibly in Tokyo too...). Every time it happened on that first pirouette. And on two different horses. Unbelieveable.

 

:SWE Sweden got 4th. Nilshagen was severely underscored.

 

But the real stars are the "B" nations for whom this event was basically staged... :FIN Finland had three riders scoring over 70%! Crazy. Usually they are happy to have one breaking this psychological barrier, but this time they collectively stepped up to the team total of 218% and 6th place. They also have three riders advancing to the Special (Top 30), which is unheard of.

 

:LUX Wagner outscored two (!) Dutch team riders with 73%. :hatoff:

 

:HUN Aniko Losonczy 29th with 70.046%. :yikes: And she even came back from a large error mid-test, so good on her. She has qualified for the next round which is massive for Hungary. @Vektor

 

:SVK Bugan got 50th. Improved his score from Rotterdam, but dropped two places. :MDA Glinka and :LTU Vanagaite debuted their respective nations finishing 57th and 58th, respectively.

Well, the judges got the podium right this time. Gold for :GER von Bredow-Werndl, silver for :GER Werth, but bronze for :DEN Dufour this time in the special. Doesn't make up for Tokyo though. Especially since Dufour lost the silver on the final centerline.

 

But then again, Bohemian is a sensitive horse so I guess we will have to get used to these blips.
