The 5* eventing competition is well underway! The first fourteen riders on the starting list for the CCI-L 5* competition in the Pau 5-Star event performed their individual tests at the Domaine de Sers. One of the riders to watch in this competition is New Zealander Tim Price, current world number 3 and winner of Le Lion d’Angers World Breeding Eventing championship last weekend in the seven-year-old category. He currently leads the provisional ranking here in Pau, riding his eleven-year-old mare, Ascona M. Ensemble. This year Price and Ascona already won the Lumühlen CCI-L 5*, one of the six most prestigious eventing competitions in the world, an elite circle in which the Pau 5-Star event has its rightful place.
In the French camp, the two riders on the starting list for the dressage tests ranked sixth, Arnaud Boiteau with Quoriano*ENE HN, and tenth, Régis Prud’hon, riding Vanda du Plessis.
