Lisieux 2019: Dry but cold first Dressage Day

The only international driving competition in France dedicated to ponies started on Thursday afternoon with the Pairs dressage. It was a dry but cold day at the Hippodrome of Lisieux, where the two-and three-star competitors entered the dressage arena. The differences in the 3* class are very little, which promises and exciting marathon on Saturday.

In the evening, all drivers, their team members and officials were welcomed in the Hippodrome for a nice welcome drink and an interesting presentation of Cirale, the Center for Imaging and Research on Equine Locomotor Disorders.
Today, the singles and four-in-hands will drive their dressage test in the center of the Hippodrome. The drivers will gather together this evening for the prize giving ceremony dressage and the Nations Night.
