NICE, France, Oct. 5, 2018–Emma Hindle rode Romy del Sol to a personal best score to win the CDI3* Grand Prix Friday for the second straight victory for the British team combination. Germany’s Matthias Alexander Rath, in his first CDI Grand Prix in three years, rode Foundation to second place in the stallion’s Big Tour debut.

Emma and the 12-year-old Westfalen mare scored 71.522 per cent for the win that came three weeks after logging their first victory in 18 months at Grand Prix. The pair were on British teams at Nations Cups in 2018 and 2017.

Foundation was ridden by Germany’s Matthias Alexander Rath in the Big Tour debut for the 10-year-old Hanoverian stallion to place second on 69.043 per cent.

The Grand Prix debut for Foundation came after Foundation’s record of 15 victories in 19 starts at small and medium tour CDIs over two years.

The ride on Foundation was also the first international Grand Prix for the 34-year-old Matthias since the European Championships in 2015 where he rode Totilas for Germany in a controversial competition that became the last CDI event for the stallion.

Russia’s Tatiana Miloserdova on Florento Fortuna was third on 68.522 per cent.
