CSI 1* - GCTV Class - The Czech Republic opens the ball

Previous Next

Let the show begin! The seventh edition of the Longines Athina Onassis Horse Show began under the blue sky and the sun of the French Riviera, with a victory in the CSI 1* GCTV class for the Czech Republic’s Anna Marie Vitek and her eleven-year-old mare Mama Mia Picobello Z.

She finished ahead of France’s Louis Weinberg Hertzog, riding his ten-year-old gelding Gloridays, who also jumped clear on the course designed by France’s Grégory Bodo. Italy’s Daphne Giunti on Dinky Toy d’Hof Ten Bos completed this opening class’s very international podium, finishing third.

Fourteen combinations had a perfect round within the time allowed, while four other combinations finished with time penalties.
