Wendi Williamson and Dejavu MH have placed sixth this morning in a tough CDI3* Grand Prix class at the Bolesworth International Horse Show at Bolesworth Castle at Chester in Cheshire.
The Kumeu combination scored 68.74%, a mark some observers thought was a little tough.
“I am happy with the day,” said Williamson. “We have a very nice warm-up where he felt soft and expressive. I thought the test was softer and more flowing than others, but I made some really expensive mistakes in the one times where he jumped behind one change and the zigzag where I miscounted. Their walk was also marked low.”
Williamson and DJ were first out in the 17-strong class, which was won by Carl Hester (GBR) aboard Barolo with 74.24%. Scores ranged down to 61.58% in the international class which attracted entries from Great Britain, Denmark, Ireland, Finland, Hong Kong, Brazil and Williamson, as New Zealand’s only entry.
Tomorrow Williamson and DJ line up in the CDI3* Grand Prix Freestyle where they are seventh to go in the nine-strong field.
