The championship competition started really well for the Danes, who had gone to Flyinge in Sweden, where the Danish U25 national team on Sunday afternoon secured a gold medal in the team competition.
The breeding stallion Blue Hors Veneziano (by Vivaldi / Donnerhall) and Blue Hors rider Laura Kristine Thorup became a decisive card in the medal match, as they won the U25 Grand Prix with a superb 70.180% – Laura and Veneziano thus continue their streak of great results, which also cashed them a bronze medal at the U25 Danish Championships earlier this month.
The Danish team consisted of Camilla Lærke Stubberup with Zun Dance (by Blue Hors Zack-son Glock’s Zonik N.O.P.), Caroline T. Elsner with Alskenz Firfod, Sandra Aagaard Hyrm with Heslegaards Rismon – and of course our own Laura Kristine Thorup with Blue Hors Veneziano.
