What a fantastic performance once again for the young Belgian lady rider Aurelia Guisson on our Z-Tour in Lanaken! For the second day in a row she won a CSIU25 class yesterday afternoon with her 13-year-old grey mare Berlini From Second Life Z (Berlin x Caretano Z – B: Thierry and Sandra Hendrikx). After winning the 1.30m high opening class on Thursday, she became the winner of the 1.35m main class yesterday afternoon. Both in the first and in the second phase Guisson managed to ensure a clear round and with a finish time of 28.72 seconds she again managed to keep the competition behind.
The Danish rider Theodor Linde was good for second place in the ranking. In the saddle of the 13-year-old gelding Jaguar (Chopin van het Moleneind x Cicero Z), he rushed to the finish line in 29.63 seconds and with that performance he came closest to the time of Guisson. The third place was again for Belgian thanks to Gert-Jan Hubrechts and the 8-year-old stallion Coco van de Helle (Cesano II x Lennon). Hubrechts also managed to ensure a double clear round and crossed the finish line in 30.24 seconds.
