Kronenberg 2021: Exell nabs best score of the day

It was a busy day in Kronenberg. The dressage was driven in three rings, starting at 8:00 and not ending until 18:00. The grounds were in pristine condition, the weather was perfect and the atmosphere reflected that everyone was happy to be out at a competition again.

Boyd Exell (AUS) drove his team to a stunning 30,86 penalty points which was the best score of the day.

Wilbrord van den Broek’s dressage test didn’t quite go as planned today. There was one unfortunate equipment failure during his test, which resulted in him needing outside help. As a result his scores from the dressage will not be counted towards the final result.


Tomorrow the 3* horse teams, pair horses, four-in-hand ponies and 2* horse teams will drive marathon starting at 9:00. The other divisions will drive cones and finish the weekend off on Sunday with the marathon.
