Meanwhile in Poland, yet another CCI4* event has wrapped up: Strzegom Summer Tour. Katharina Tietz of Germany won the class with the 9-year-old Chapeau Claque 49, and was third as well with Aspen T.

With Chapeau Claque 49 she was eighth after dressage, had one down in the jumping and galloped for the win with a clear cross-country round, only two seconds over the optimum time. She finished third with Aspen T. They were in the 16th position after the first trial and went up nine places after keeping all the jumps up in the second one. She reached the finish of the cross-country with additional penalties for time.

Second place went to Sanne De Jong with Jersey MBF. The Dutch rider was 6th after dressage and only added time faults later on – for two seconds in the jumping and 18 in the cross country.
