Egyptian victory in the MTVA Prize

Friday’s first contest of the day, the 125cm CSI* Small Tour for the Moody Mares Riding Shop Prize, started with a pleasant sunny day.

Thirty-six riders entered the two-phase event without interruption. Vilmos Göttler on Jégvirág seemed to be unbeatable once again, but in the end the penultimate rider, Greta Fésűs on Hunter Dadero Z, improved even their lightning-fast clear ride by a few hundredths of a second and took the victory.

The day continued with the 135cm CSI* Big Tour against the clock for the MTVA Prize. The 32 competing pairs were faced with 12 obstacles with two combinations on the 450m long course. Most of the riders had no problems with the 78-second time allowed, and the audience was treated to a number of beautiful clear round. However, the first starter, Egyptian Mouda Zeyada, was not beaten by any of the riders in the field, not only entering the course first but also finishing the event in first place.
