Salteras 2018: The Dressage winners

The dressage of the CAI2* and Andalusian Championships in Salteras started this morning with a nice cool breeze. The 24 competitors entered the well-prepared dressage arena, which has a grand view over Seville and the international Ground Jury members all judged equally, which resulted in fair scores.
