Dana van Lierop Takes Provisional Lead in Team Competition
Friday, July 31, 2009
Dutch rider Dana van Lierop has taken the provisional lead in the team championship test at the 2009 European Pony Championships held today at Het Zilveren Spoor in Moorsele, Belgium.
The show started at 8 AM this morning with the official measurement of all ponies, following by a vet inspection outdoors. It was smooth sailing for all ponies. Though many of the ponies ended up being measured at 150 cm and even 151 cm, all of them passed the strange European Championships limit of 152 cm (which only applies at the EC and not at CDI-P where the limit it 149 cm).
