This weekend Van Vivaldi did his first competition in Sweden and together with his new rider Caroline Darcourt. They competed at Strömsholm, where there was a national competition with qualifiers for the five and six years old to Flyinge and Falsterbo.
Yesterday’s Grand Prix was full of unexpected events for Tinne, Benetton Dream FRH 1301 and Divertimento. “Ben” and Tinne had to perform in 35 degrees Celsius and burning sun. Quite the conditions since it was the second meeting in a row for the stallion. But Tinne was super pleased afterwards.
Tinne Vilhelmson Silfvén and Divertimento won the Grand Prix Special at Global Dressage Festival in Wellington last night. They scored 72.333%, compared to second place Mikala Gundersen’s 70.196% on My Lady.
The Team at Lövsta South is competing again this weekend. On Thursday both Benetton Dream FRH 1301 and Divertimento started in the Grand Prix. Divertimento ended up in fourth place with a percentage of 72.100% and Ben finished ninth on 69.500%.
– I’m really pleased with both of them. They did two really nice rounds, says Tinne.
