Davydova started the Russian charge with Developing, scoring a modest 69.022. An additional good score of 69.087 by Tatyana Kosterina and Diavolessa VA put the crowds in a very robust location and Regina Isachkina’s 67.022 while equestrian Sun of May Life long-established Russia’s win.
“The situation was the first time I did in my motherland, usually I perform in Europe where occasionally I am the only member under the flag of Russia at the event,” supposed Kosterina.
Now I feel great provision and at the same time, all of us feel big accountability in this contest. I completely focused on my presentation, and each of us did all for the sake of this conquest today.
Kosterina & Sidneva were followers of the Russian team which finished 10th in the team dressage event at last year’s World Equestrian Sports in Tryon in the United States. Belarus finished second today with their joint score of 198.717.
The Group C finalist enclosed Central and Eastern Europe and Central Asia, a region of 29 FEI countries. The next dressage qualifier for Tokyo Olympic is the Pan American Games in Lima which starts next month. August’s European Championships in Rotterdam will also qualify riders.
