Caen/FRA: Augustin OLD Sixth in the Special As Well

I still can't really believe it: After sixth in the Grand Prix we places sixth again the Special of the World Equestrian Games in the Normany/FRA.

Augustin OLD was able to concentrate on me very nicely in spite of the stands being packed with so many spectators in the rather noisy stadium and his presentation had many highlights. We tried very hard to show as many highlights as possible and were lucky – except for two little things.Augustin rode a very correct test, was always nicely on the bit and received individual scores up to 9.0 for this.  I am very happy – especially since I never dreamed that we would make it so far in this extremely strong field of competitors. So I think we did better than I expected and now I am looking forward to the Freestyle on Friday. We will be the first couple to start in the second group at 3:25 p.m. – and will ride the freestyle to the same Italian music to which he danced to fifth place in the EC in Windsor/GBR and also earned many other good placings. Please keep your fingers crossed for us! :-)
