Windsor debutant Lars Schwitte drove his KWPN-geldings Coenraad (v. Manno) and Damico 5 (v. Waldemar) with a nice test to a score of 41,30 points. Title defender in Windsor Barry Capstick was very pleased with his second place since one of his horses has only been in harness for 14 weeks.
The competitors will now prepare for tomorrow’s marathon with eight well-designed obstacles by Dutch level 4 Course Designer Johan Jacobs.
