The dressage phase wrapped up today for international classes at Poland’s LOTTO Baborówko Horse Sale Show. Yoshiaki Oiwa of Japan leads the banner CCI4*-S division with Calle 4, his own 13-year-old Holsteiner gelding (Cristo 5 x Sara IV, by Quebec). This experienced pair finished fourth in the same division last year and have had good results through the five-star level — they were 6th at Luhmühlen in 2019 and finished 20th at the 2018 WEG in Tryon. They sit on a score of 27.4 heading into the jumping phases.
Polish rider Mateusz Kiempa is second with Lassban Radovix. The CCI4*-S will also determine the medalists of Polish national championships for senior riders — Kiempa’s second place in the class makes him the leader for the moment. The athlete rode three horses in the class and is also currently fourth in the overall classification with Libertina. Fellow Polish rider Paweł Spisak with Banderas sits in third place and second in the championships.
Yoshiaki Oiwa also leads the CCI3*-S, for the prize of Kuhn Maszyny Rolnicze, with The Duke of Cavan, and is in fifth with Bart L JRA. Second place for now belongs to Paweł Warszawski (POL) with Lucinda Ex Ani 4, and Maja Wyszkowska (POL) riding Sacramento is third. This position made her the leader in the Polish championships for young riders. Kamil Rajnert (POL) took the lead in the CCI2*-S with Emilia Of Chin. Malin Hansen-Hotopp (GER) riding Monsieur Schnabel is second, and William Nilsson Fryer (SWE) sits in third.
