Fourth place in the World Cup Grand Prix for Tinne and Paridon Magi23 February 2017
This weekend hosts two World Cup qualifiers, both in Gothenburg, Sweden and Wellington, Florida. Tinne Vilhelmson Silfvén rode both Paridon Magi and Benetton Dream FRH 1301 in the Grand Prix today and ended up in fourth place with Paridon Magi.
It was the third start in Wellington for the season for Paridon Magi and he finished at 73.190% which was enough to be placed four today. When we reach Tinne in Florida she says that Paridon Magi has been very even the entire season so far.
– Magi did really well today and I’m super happy with him. We had a stupid mistake in the two tempi changes and the rein back and it cost us a lot of points, she says.
Benetton Dream FRH 1301 also started in the Grand Prix today and scored 67.140% and it was a round that offered both high and low.
– Yes, we had some really expensive mistakes on movements with coefficient, such as the half pass and a mistake in the two tempi changes. He tripped really badly in the first extended trot and fell into canter. I had a really nice feeling, but if you start out with a big trip more mistakes easily follows, says Tinne.
A part from that they did a really good test and were rewarded for the one tempi changes and the pirouettes.
Paridon Magi will perform in the Freestyle tomorrow night, local time. You can follow it live on http://tv.coth.com/ and Tinne is looking forward to it.
– I’ve made my share of mistakes now, so I don’t need to do any more for quite some time, she says laughing.
