PRATONI TEST EVENT impressive performance on a new marathon


 

IMPRESSIVE PERFORMANCES ON A NEW MARATHON COURSE AT DRIVING TEST EVENT AT CAI2*/3* PRATONI DEL VIVARO

 

From a single pony to some of the world’s leading four-in-hand drivers, the six technical obstacles designed by Josef Middendorf, set in the beautiful parkland at Pratoni del Vivaro, enabled both flowing routes and tight turns, for all combinations. The positioning of the obstacles around the natural grandstand of a central mound gave a great vantage point for spectators to view some exciting driving. 

In the horse fours, Jszef Dobrovitz Jnr. produced a polished and consistent round with his fit and athletic Dutch warmblood horses to win the marathon and take the overall lead. Beforehand, he thought that the obstacles might be tight for his big horses, but he used all his skill to ensure that they kept moving forward and with a blend of quick turns and springing the horses into canter where possible, his slick rein handling gave the appearance of a smoothly driven marathon. The only horse fours driver to finish on sub-100 penalties (98.96), his combined score after days one and two is 150.85.  His performance is all the more remarkable as he was unwell on Friday so to have recovered and be able to clinch a win in this demanding phase shows what a first-class driver he is.

As one of the best marathon drivers on the circuit, Anthony Horde was always going to lay down the gauntlet and his times in three of the obstacles were quickest. Improving on his position after the dressage, he now sits second on 155.50.

Jszef Dobrovitz Snr. was another captivating driver to watch as he achieved two of the class’s fastest times, in obstacles one and five, but a few expensive penalties gained in the first section pushed him behind Anthony on the marathon, while pushing him up a place to third on 159.36 going into the cones.
