WC Kecskemét: six horses out in the horse inspection

The horse inspection of the World Pair Driving Championship in Kecskemét took place this morning under tropical circumstances. Over 200 horses were presented to the veterinarians and the judges in two lanes.

For competitor Edwin Bryson the horse inspection meant the end of the competition for him. The Irishman had travelled to Kecskemét with only two horses, of which one was declared not fit to compete. Horses of Austrian driver Fritz Stenitzer, Danish competitor Hans-Henrik Nielsen, Switzerland’s Daniel Wütrich, Miroslav Matuska from Slovakia and Zsolt Selyben from Hungary, all team members for their nation, will start the World Championship with a disadvantage because one of their horses were taken out.
