Third day at the 2014 World Equestrian Games

On Monday and Tuesday, the performances offered by PRE horses served to classify for the Grand Prix Special at the seventh World Equestrian Games, currently underway.  At 11:20, José Antonio García Mena riding Norte Lovera—owned by Yeguada Lovera—entered the arena, to earn the best average in the Grand Prix.  Of course, this is standard practice for these contestants at international competitions.  After a brilliant first exercise and a few slip-ups half way through the test, horse and rider surpassed the score earned the previous day to achieve 72.689% —the highest average earned to date by Norte Lovera in a Grand Prix Special.
The judges granted the following scores:
Judge C (president): Susan HOEVENAARS – 69.804
 Judge H: Dietrich PLEWA – 73.235                              
 Judge M: Isabelle JUDET – 72.745      
 Judge E: Stephen CLARKE – 73.824                                                     
 Judge B: Liselotte FORE – 73.922      
 Judge K: Francis VERBEEK – 75.098                                         
 Judge F: Elizabeth MC MULLEN – 7.0196
Once Norte finished, there were still 20 horses/riders waiting to perform, including Grandioso III, owned by Hampton Green Farm, bred by Yeguada Marín García and ridden by José Daniel Martín Dockx. Upon entering the arena about 1:45 pm, they offered a good test to earn 74.090 in the Grand Prix.  Our hearts are sent on this horse and rider, who, with a bit of luck, will qualify for the Kür—Grandioso really knows how to shine!
The scores were:
Judge C (president): Susan HOEVENAARS – 73.333
 Judge H: Dietrich PLEWA – 73.529                              
 Judge M: Isabelle JUDET – 75.294      
 Judge E: Stephen CLARKE – 73.235                                                     
 Judge B: Liselotte FORE – 73.431     
 Judge K: Francis VERBEEK – 75.882                                         
 Judge F: Elizabeth MC MULLEN – 73.922
