Afterward a varied day in the jumping arena, the group over the rivalry on a total score of 135.8. Equestrian fairytale Andrew Hoy and Vassily de Lassos stole the show with an unbelievable clear round and over on their dressage score of 29.8. They just wasted a podium finish and were fourth-placed separately.
“We came to WEG to qualify for Tokyo and we have achieved that. No one can question the effort and application, perhaps the execution is something we still need to work on.”
“Stuart Tinney and his side should be pleased with what they have attained at WEG; though, they are below no illusion of what lies ahead in the next 18 months. We need to rejoice Andrew Hoy’s presentation as he proves he is still world-class,” said Webb.
Andrew Hoy might not have been more pleased with how his 9YO Anglo Arab has done throughout the event.
“As I supposed at the twitch of the week after I ran cross-country, he just saves on growing each time I trip him in his presentations this week. To finish on his dressage score at his first World Championships is unconditionally extraordinary,” said Hoy.
When Stuart Tinney (Chef D’Equipe) said I would be the first rider of the team I said ok good well I am going to finish on my dressage score. Hoy acclaimed his horse highly and renowned how rapidly he has ascended through the positions.
“He’s just the coolest horse mentally when I was walking down here I had to squeeze him then I could feel him take a deep breath and he grew then the more I went about that hopping course he could have absent again.”
“I could not ask for more. He’s been continually finishing on his dressage score. Meanwhile the ongoing his global career in 2015 he’s had one rail down at FEI level.”
There’s no doubt the rapport between Hoy and Vassily de Lassos is unique and the stuff that could propel them to the top of the Eventing tree in the years to come. It’s always about finding the relationship with the horse and every horse I get on I have to take time about that horse’s personality where that horse is at and what I need to do with that horse.
It takes four years to really develop a relationship but with him, it has been much quicker than that. Shane Rose & Virgil also went strong in the jumping and over on 57.4.
“He’s a very decent jumper particularly at 3day, he’s more receptive and patient,” said Rose.
Side mate Chris Burton & Cooley Lands also sent a clear round (48.6).
“He’s a beautiful horse and stretches you a feeling of sureness around a jumping course,” supposed Burton.
It is situated such a good day for Emma McNab and Fernhill Tabasco who had an uncustomary snub and rails down (59.8).
“It as an actual shock, he’s not ever had a stop. He was jumping well but just startling which is nothing like he normally is. Clearly not what I wanted today. It just wasn’t a good day for us,” said McNab.
Side GBR won gold, Ireland silver, and the French tenable bronze. Japan finished fourth and Germany was fifth-placed.
