The action kept on coming and during the evening one of the most exciting and interesting trials from this event took place in the form of the Jump & Drive which was won by a truly exceptional duo, Bertram Allen and Wild Thing L, and Australia’s Boyd Exell who did not disappoint.
Coming in second in this entertaining trial was an all-German pair of Marcel Marschall with Castigo della Caccia, a horse from a breeding farm in Italy, for the show-jumping side and Michael Brauchle for the driving. In third we find another German rider with Felix Hassmann with Horse Gym’s Balance and the world champion for the driving discipline Holland’s Koos de Ronde.
