5 year old final
The 5 year old final became a kind of a show case of how to become a Champion. The very experienced rider Eva Möller showed Valverde by Vitalis / Ampere in the best possible way both for the preliminary class and for today’s final. Valverde is fully focused on the job all the way and Eva Möller is able to adjust and help him as much as needed without any tensions. The scoreboard showed the clear difference with Valverde scoring 9,3 and with the Franziskus / Damon Hill son Federer with Carlos Caetano at silver position with 8,6 and bronze medalist Anna-Sophie Fibelkorn with Don Mateo by Don Juan de Hus / Royal Highness with 8,5.
From H2R point of view the mare Quiana with Nicole Wego which came 4th with 8,4 should have been at the podium.
Equal placed at 7th position was Espe with Eva Möller and Damon Gold OLD with Danish Maria Falkner Hansen. Placed 9th today was Luxembourg rider Kristine Møller with Quatre-Quartz a L´orange.
Today’s winner became 4th in the final at WCYH in Ermelo.
