WEG Driving: Driving Facts and Figures and Quotes

Boyd Exell (AUS):
“I had to stop myself from smiling in there. My horses were doing it all on their own, the circles, the corners, everything. My grooms helped by telling me to warm up for 20 minutes less. I will not underestimate IJsbrand Chardon, I know that he will go as fast as he can in the marathon. The course is very open with some challenging turns. We are used to more technical obstacles.”

Tucker Johnson (USA):
“My left leader horse got a bit excited so I picked a safe pace which still showed the brilliance of my horses. I feel that my team has wonderful balance and movement and they showed an elegant and attractive test. It is good to be here and to drive my last dressage test on home soil.”
