The dressage test of the CAIO 4*-H1 is now over, leaving the way open for the cones competition at the Domaine de Sers, as part of the Pau 5-star eventing competition. Belgian carriage driver Laure Philippot took the lead after the second series of dressage tests. Laure won the Belgian championships in 2018 and now ranks world no. six. Here in Pau, she ranks just ahead of French driver Fabrice Martin, and Dutch driver Rudolf Pestman, on the individual provisional leaderboard of the CAIO 4*-H1.
The brilliant performance given by French team Fabrice Martin and Marion Vignaud, currently fourth in the individual competition, and winner of last year’s event, put them in the lead ahead of Germany and the Netherlands.
