CDI Compiegne

This year, the French town of Compiegne will hostthe start of the Nations Cup series dressage. On the beautiful grounds of the “Grand Parc Equestrian Arena” not only the 5* nations cup is on the program, but also, for example, the 3* Grand Prix and the international Small Tour class.
Lottie traveled to France with Everdale, who will compete in the 5* class, Lars van de Hoenderheide who competes in the 3* and Jackson who competes in the international Prix St. George  class.

On day 1, Lars van de Hoenderheide was the first of the trio to enter the arena. As the penultimate starter in the large field, the chestnut gelding made a very strong impression. With a practically flawless test, the duo managed to achieve a score of 75.783%, which was good for a 1st place and a solid PB!

At the end of the day, it was Jackson’s turn. The son of Everdale has competed in a handful of international competitions and Compiegne was his first ever outdoor competition. Lottie and Jackson started the test in the pouring rain. Despite the fact that it started to rain even harder, Jackson remained very concentrated on his work and they managed to achieve a score of 75.529%, which is again a PB!
In the same class, the Everdale son Everian L ridden by Anna Kasprzak managed to take third place.
