Good Rides from Polish Athletes in Lower Classes

Strzegom, Poland, April 7: Tim Lips with the 13-year-old Bayro was unbeatable in the CCI4*-S class during Strzegom Spring Open. Mateusz Kiempa (POL) has won the 3* class with Libertina.

The Dutch rider has taken the lead after the dressage trial, went clear on the fences during the cross country with penalty points for the time, and the showjumping test with a clear round on Sunday proved him to the best of all, and secured his leading position in the class.

“It was Bayro’s first start of the season. I know my horse is a super star. We had a great start in the dressage already. About the cross country, I think it was a very nice course for the beginning of the season, Bayro is a very experienced horse and it felt easy for me. Today in the showjumping he did a great round and gave me a fantastic feeling.”

Yoshiaki Oiwa (JPN) finished in the second place with Calle 44. Third place was at question during the three trials. French rider Aurelie Riedweg was third after dressage. After cross country her position was taken by Andreas Dibowski, who then finished the showjumping with two knockdowns, giving up his third place to Katrin Khoddam-Hazrati (AUT) with Oklahoma 2, coming up from her fifth position before the last trial.

Polish riders outside the top ten. Mariusz Kleniuk with the Polish-bred Winona was the highest ranked Polish athlete in the class, finishing at 11th.

Almost 250 riders from 21 countries, including China and Japan, competed in six international and five national classes of different difficulty levels, and almost 350 horses have galloped through the hippodrome in Morawa during the 4 days of the show.

Mateusz Kiempa was the best in the CCI3*-S class with the 10-year-old Libertina. The Polish athlete took the lead after dressage, but exceeding the time allowed on the cross-country course cost him his leading position and placed him at sixth. He took back his position in the showjumping, where he went clear, winning the whole class. Yoshiaki Oiwa (JPN) was second with Bart L JRA, and third place went to the current Polish national champions, Jan Kamiński with the Polish-bred Senior.
