Test event Caen: Team Weber undefeated in dressage on European Tour

Nine-time U.S. national driving champion Chester Weber scored yet another win in the dressage phase at the CAI-A 4 Caen, in Caen, France. Donimating the field with a score of 34.63, this win leaves Weber undefeated in the dressage phase during his 2013 European season. Weber finished second in the marathon behind Dutch driver Hans Heus and remained in the lead with a big advantage to his 11 oponents. One knock down and minor time penalties did not endanger his victory at the FEI Alltech WEG 2014 test event in Caen.

Germany's Ludwig Weinmayr finished second, ahead of Britain's Georgina Hunt.
Weber’s winning team for this European season include his own Para, Senate, Horus du Bois, Ultra, and Boris W, as well as Splash and Uniek owned by Jane Clark. Together these horses showed their mettle against the top European teams with a wire-to-wire win at the CAIO Saumur, and top 3 finishes at both Beekbergen and Aachen. Caen marks the final stop on Team Weber’s European tour; they will travel back to the United States to compete for a tenth national championship title at the Kentucky Classic in September with the ultimate goal being the 2014 World Equestrian Games in Normandy.
“The horses went well,” stated Weber. “They are a very consistent group and I could not be more pleased with their success this summer.”
