Lithuanian driver Almutis Raila, who had won the dressage and cones had once again an elimination in the marathon which unfortunately also happened at his home event in Bendoriai at the end of May.
It was a celebration in the 3* single pony category as Finnish drivers swept the entire podium. Topping the division was Raisa Takkinen followed by Leena Vähä-Erkkilä and Leena Kalalahti.
The Estonian drivers put forth a good showing with the best placings from Riina Rõa who finished fourth in the single pony division and Ülar Raudsepp who finished fifth in 3* single horse division.
