Valkenswaard: Lars Schwitte takes the lead

The second edition of Driving Valkenswaard started today with the Horse Pairs dressage, which took place in the very smooth Main Arena at the site of hosts Boyd and Preetha Exell. Windsor-winner Lars Schwitte won the dressage, ahead of Michael Sellier and Sandro Koalick. The best Dutch performance was put down by Raymond Letteboer in fourth place.
