Dressage delivers at Adelaide Equestrian Festival for CCI5*

After a spectacular day of dressage, the final leaders after dressage were determined for the Adelaide Equestrian Festival CCI5* on the Gillian Rolton Main Arena in front of the historic Victoria Park Grandstands

New Zealand Entrant Monica Spencer on Artist took the lead after a crowd-pleasing test on 24 penalties. This was followed closely by Australians Sam Lyle on BF Valour with 25.6 penalties, and Shane Rose on Be My Daisy with 26.4 penalties.

Saturday will see all classes tackle the cross-country through the famed Adelaide Parklands starting with the Horseland CCI3* Cross Country. This will be followed after lunch by the Adelaide International CCI5* Cross Country and then to conclude the RM Williams CCI4* Cross Country.
