Australians Simone Pearce and Briana Burgess are celebrating excellent results at the Longines FEI / WBFSH World Breeding Dressage Championships for Young Horses in Ermelo, Netherlands. 

 

On Friday, the pair qualified for the YH Final for six-year-old horses. Simone led the qualifying round on Feodoro, with the Furstenball gelding scoring 9.02 points (including the only ten of the class, for his walk). Briana placed fourth with Jazz gelding Gerion in the same class, scoring 8.94 points.

In Sunday’s final, the results varied considerably from the qualifying round. Simone and Feodoro finished in equal seventh on 8.64 points, while Briana and Gerion finished in ninth place on 8.44 points. Although they were unable to match their scores from the first round, their final scores were still exceptional and to finish in the top ten at the World Breeding Dressage Championships for Young Horses is a truly amazing effort! The class was won by Lordswood Dancing Diamond and Anne-Kathrin Pohlmeier, with the Dancier gelding scoring a whopping 9.72 points — including a ten for trot and perspective.
