While the CCI4*-L and Nations Cup at Military Boekelo in The Netherlands captured the attention of those interested in a first look at the new Olympic format, many other top European-based riders headed to Poland for the Strzegom October Festival, which hosted a CCI1*, CCI2*-S, and CCI3* and 4* long and shorts over Oct. 10-13, 2019.
Australia’s Andrew Hoy rode Paula & David Evans‘ Vassily de Lassos to a second place finish in the CCI4*-L, clocking in the fastest cross country round of the day and only one of two rounds clear and inside the time; the other belonging to division winners Harry Meade and Superstition. Vassily de Lassos, a 10-year-old Anglo-Arab gelding (Jaguar Mail x Illusion Perdue, by Jalienny), was Andrew’s mount for the 2018 World Equestrian Games in Tryon. With numerous top results and speedy rounds already at such a young age, he’s surely one to watch going into an Olympic year.
Grab mane and enjoy their speedy Strzegom round!
