Dressage world awaits Freestyle

The dressage world, including 21.000 spectators in a sold out D’Ornano stadium, is awaiting the third Dressage medal. The Freestyle Grand Prix is the last competition for the dressage riders at the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games in Normandy.

Fifteen riders qualified for the highlight of ballet-style artistic with their horses. The draw has arranged it for the three top contenders to ride at the very end. German Helen Langehanenberg. Charlotte Dujardin and Valegro who are dominating the dressage world since three years, winning every possible title in front of them, will piaffe and passage their heart out to add the next world championship.  Dutch Adelinde Cornelissen is the last one in the arena, riding her trusted Jericho Parzival who had won world cup freestyles before Valegro came on the scene. The Dutch is keen to make up for missing out at the medals for Grand Prix Special where she came fourth.

Morgan Barbancon of Spain is the first out at 13.35 to ride in front of the panel of six international judges riding Dutch gelding Painted Black.
