29/07/2019 – It is not only Tokyo where atlethes are competing for a spot on stage: in Regstrup (DEN) the battle on the NRHA European Affiliate Championship (EAC) has started yesterday with the Rookie Professional class counting 13 entries. All Scandinavian, except Dutch Kristel Bus. Bus entered her 9-year-old mare Kam Cherry Lee Lewis [Double Delmaso]. Bus took off well. She got a minor penalty on the second set of spins but made up for that mistake in her circles. In the stops and rollbacks the combination came short, resulting in the final score 209,0. Enough though for step 3 of the podium.
Marking a 214,5 Finish Maria Astikainen and the 13-year-old gelding Antarismartin [ARC Antares Surprise] claimed the title. Reserve honors were for Swedish Therese Henriksson and the 5-year-old mare Thgungottarufdream [Ruf Lil Rascal] marking a 210,5.
The EAC classes Youth 13&Under, Rookie and Intermediate Non Pro are scheduled for today. You can follow the action live visiting https://rh-video.de/livestreaming.
