Equestrian: Gal wins with rookie
5.16 pm: With a nice score of 80.73 percent, dressage rider Edward Gal has won an inserted Grand Prix in Tolbert. He did this with GLOCK’s Total US. The horse made his debut at the highest level, reigning national champion Gal himself certainly not.

Naturally, Gal was pleased. “Both horses have shown themselves very well. This competition is great to start again for the first time. It is not that busy around the ring, which gives the horses a lot of confidence. I am very happy with both horses. Toto Jr is a bit more of a powerhouse, Total US a bit more elegant. But it’s great to have two such horses on their way to the Tokyo Olympics. ”
According to national coach Alex van Silfhout, matches in preparation for Tokyo are desperately needed. “We have to get into a competition rhythm again. Everything has been arranged very well here and I am very satisfied with the transactions. With fifteen combinations above 70 percent and really a super leading group. This is only the first game again, there is more to come. We will confidently continue preparations on the way to Tokyo. ”
The race in Tolbert counts towards Olympic qualification.
