Maxime Livio to go last in Sunday’s Agria Top 10 Indoor Eventing
Maxime Livio (FRA) and Boleybawn Prince was the best combination in the first class of Agria Top 10 Indoor Eventing in Stockholm, Sweden, on Thursday night. This means they will go last in the final on Sunday.
Livio was very pleased with his horse after the ride:
“He is jus an amazing horse. He did Boekelo when he was eight with the German team. I’m training the Thailand eventing team and now he belongs to one of my Thai riders. He’s 17 now and still loves to compete. We train him for these competitions because they are not so physically demanding. He can just have big fun and feel the atmosphere of the big shows. I’m very lucky to have this horse and I’m very thankful to his owners who let me ride him.“
What do you think about having an indoor season in eventing?
“I think it’s really good with the indoor shows because we can promote our sport and it’s helpful for us to have competitions during the winter season. I also think the audience loves to see these competitions, there is always a very good atmosphere.
“It’s important though to have specific horses for this kind of classes. They need to be fast, but very connected and listening to the rider. They also have to be experienced, because everything comes very quickly.“
What’s you plan for Sunday’s final?
“It will be the first time we do two fast classes during a competition. I think I will just have to manage my horse a little bit, because he will probably want to go too quick. I’m happy to be at the end of the order, that means I will have some answers about the course. And I will know who’s in the lead and what kind of risk they took.“
