World Cup points for Hans Peter and Zanardi

There’s a total of 10 rounds in the Dressage World Cup for the 2018/2019 season, with the Final taking place from April 3rd till 7th in Gothenburg (SWE). GLOCK Rider Hans Peter Minderhoud made a successful start to the World Cup season with his 14-year-old Zanardi, son of Rubels x Avignon, at the Equita Lyon.

It was at the Grand Prix of the FEI Dressage World Cup™ in Lyon (FRA) that the duo were able to demonstrate their strengths in the passage and canter pirouette and take fifth place among 16 duos with 72.413%. In the musical freestyle on Friday (02/11), small errors in the one-tempi changes and halts and salutes cost points, though Hans Peter nevertheless rode magnificently into the placings with 77.040%. Seventh place in the World Cup Musical Freestyle brought him the first eleven World Cup points of the season.
