The 5* eventing competition is well underway!
The first fourteen riders on the starting list for the CCI-L 5* competition in the Pau 5-Star event performed their individual tests this afternoon, at the Domaine de Sers. One of the riders to watch in this competition is New Zealander Tim Price, current world number 3 and winner of Le Lion d’Angers World Breeding Eventing championship last weekend in the seven-year-old category.
He currently leads the provisional ranking here in Pau, riding his eleven-year-old mare, Ascona M. Ensemble. This year Price and Ascona already won the Lumühlen CCI-L 5*, one of the six most prestigious eventing competitions in the world, an elite circle in which the Pau 5-Star event has its rightful place.
In the French camp, the two riders on the starting list for the dressage tests today ranked sixth – Arnaud Boiteau with Quoriano*ENE HN - and tenth - Régis Prud’hon, riding Vanda du Plessis.
Tomorrow, Friday 25th October, British rider Michael Owen will be first into the arena for the second part of the dressage tests at 10 o’clock.
