It was a relatively quiet weekend for Oliver, with just one horse – Ridire Dorcha – running at Boekelo.
The judges were in complete agreement with the pair’s dressage performance, all three of them putting Oliver in 11th place out of the 99 starters.
Given the weather conditions Oliver chose not to run too fast across country, picking up 13.2 time faults but jumping clear. However, with one of the few showjumping clears on the final day he completed where he started, in 11th place. A great first CCI3* for the horse.
