The CVI Hungary is on its way, so we will try to keep you informed about everything about it.
First thing of the event was as always the Veterinarian Check of the horses so that it is clear, none of them is hurt. Three of them had to go to the “Holding Box”. Most times that is no box. It means when the horses showed their trot the judges saw that it is lame so it is held back till all horses showed their pace & gets a second chance.
At the CVI in Hungary three horses had to do it twice, Robin, the horse of Lisa Wild & the pas de deux Evelyn Freund & Stefanie Millinger (Austria), even got another chance Friday morning. He passed. Some horse have some trouble with all the traveling in the horse trailers so that they don’t go well after it. Sometimes to give them a rest & a lot of walk helps.
The competition has started. The first information we got is, that the horse Monte Cristo was disqualified during the pas de deux presentation of Zsófia Vida & Ágnes Czeglédi (Hungary) because he was misbehaving. Let’s not forget that it is still a horse sport.
Friday was the compulsory day. Lisa Wild (Austria) got 7.850 with a horse score of 7.575. Isabel Fiala (Austria) received better exercise scores even that she struggled with the first part of the flank but her horse was just a 6.140 which means 7.594 compulsory points. Third is Blanka Németh followed by Esther Somogyi both from Hungary.
The Junior males are lead by Ákos Király followed by Ákos Toth, both from Hungary. Balázs Bence (Hungary) leads the seniors with a 7.587.
There are three Polish junior squads in the competition. Looks like another nation tries to qualify for the Junior World Championships. One of them is followd by three cameras for the the whole year already for the vaulting documentation “Wolta”. An interview with the producer will follow in the future.
To be continued.
