One day earlier Lina and Donna scored also a second place in the individual test of this Young Rider competition with 24 international combinations. Their performance was consistent but didn’t deliver the wow factor we had hoped for. This in combination with some difference between the judges kept the score just below 70%. The same applied for the final result in the team competition. There were clear highlights in this test, like the canter part and especially the flying changes, but regretfully costly mistakes too, mainly twice at the halt. Because of that our combination only finished third at the beginning of this fantastic international show.
