Triple Success for Hungary in the Table C Competition

In such competitions riders don’t get penalty points but time penalties if fences falling down. At the end these seconds are added to the time taken by each rider to set the ranking. A rider with a fast time can be the winner, even with a few faults.
Hungarians are specialists of Table C competitions as last year at Longines FEI Nations Cup™ Jumping of Hungary CSIO5* Budapest riders from the host nation took triple victory and today this great success has been repeated.
The first place went to Attila Técsy on El Capitan, ahead of Hungarian young talent, just 16-year-old Szabrina Plavecz, who was placed for a second time this weekend on Királyhágó.
Szabolcs Krucsó seems to sympathize with the number three as he took third place for the third time in this category.
