The crew supported yesterday’s strong dressage results with a new high performance. A balanced, fast and flawless ride over obstacles but with 2.4 penalty kicks to get past the time. The duo is 13th individually before the jump.
– He did not like today. It’s his first championship, but I really think he has proved to me today that he is at the highest level. It was very easy to organize today, it used to be that it was maybe a little too powerful for me. But I came up with an approach that makes it work very well and with the help of the little helpers can ride the obstacles in the most optimal way. It was great today, says Algutson Ostholt.
Sixth place in the team championship
He was even among several teams today and Sweden finally climbed a place in the team competition and goes up to sixth place tomorrow, but only 3.4 penalty points differs from Switzerland four.
