    Eric Winter did the Young Riders no favors. Germany led after dressage, but only two riders finished XC. One was Alina Dibowski who sits 2nd overall. The Russian Federation finished NO riders, while the Poles, Spanish, and Belgians finished 1. France leads on 98.5, with the Brits at 107. Next comes the Netherlands at 159.1, then the Italians at 203.3, followed by Ireland at 210.6 with Sweden at 239.9. Then Germany, Belgium, Spain, Poland and Russia.

    In the Juniors, Germany leads, followed by Ireland and GB.

    Interestingly there were more countries in the Juniors and many of them were different.

      Viney, are you basing the "no favours" comment on the scores or did you see the course?

        Isn’t Eric the same course designer that said that “no one will finish on their dressage score”? I think this was when he took over Badminton

        in my view, when the whole class fails the test the teacher actually failed in designing the testing. How disappointing for those kids and potentially risk inducing. I have not had a chance to watch yet - were weather or ground conditions a factor?

            Viney - you have to be proficient in all 3 phases to win championships.

            Juniors; 77 started, 54 finished.
            YRs 66 started, 41 finished.

              Out of the 66 YRs, only 27 made it around XC without jumping penalties. That's just over 40%.

              I was wrong above. It wasn't Alina Dibowski who was sitting second. It was another German girl, and she ended up winning the individual. I must have read the lines wrong.
