Van Liere’s top score put the Dutch ahead in the Team competition as well. She was helped out by teammate Thamar Zweistra and Hexagon’s Ich Weiss, who scored 72.376 percent. Germany is holding in second place, followed by Team Denmark, with medals to be decided on Sunday, when the other half of the national teams get their chance in the arena.

Notable mentions include Germany’s Eventing juggernaut Ingrid Klimke in ECCO FEI World Championships 2022 , remarkably in seventh place at present with Franziskus, Gretha Ferreira of South Africa, in the top 12 with Zidane, 14th-place rider Fie Christine Skarsoe of Luxembourg with Emperador Dos Cedros, Stella Hagelstam of Finland with Mount St John Kom Fairy Tale, in 16th, and Norway’s Mathilde Merethe Klaesson with Sandbaeks Rio EL, holding 20th place.

Unlike some other competitions, fans also got to see riders from countries that aren’t always represented. It’s always fantastic to see nations that don’t have big Dressage programmes competing, like Singapore, India, Armenia, Hungary, Colombia, Palestine, and Brazil.
