On a warm, sunny morning, over 100 impeccably turned out horses paraded before a panel of six judges for the horse Inspection.

Danser of Finnish driver Talvikki Järvinnen and Don Camillo of French driver Renaud Vinck did not pass the horse inspection. Luckily both nations have a reserve horse, so both drivers can compete in the Championships.

All horses of the Para-Equestrian drivers were declared ‘fit to compete’.

This afternoon the Para-Equestrian drivers will drive their dressage test. The horse single drivers will enter the arena on Thursday and Friday.
