Cathrine Dufour made the biggest step yet to ride for Denmark at her second Olympics when she rode Bohemian to victories on personal best scores in both the Grand Prix and the Special at the Danish Warmblood Stallion show in Herning
Cathrine at the age of 24 made the Danish team on Cassidy at the 2016 Games in Rio de Janeiro.
With Cassidy now 17 years old, Cathrine competed Bohemian, a 10-year-old Westfalen gelding, at the Herning CDI5* that was the first major test for combinations seeking to be one of three on the Danish team at the Tokyo Olympics at the end of July.
The scores of 83.043% in the Grand Prix and 82.681% in the Special were the highest in the Big Tour for Cathrine, including her results on Cassidy on which she is ranked No. 5 in the world.
Cathrine has been competing Bohemian (Bordeaux x Samarant) from Small Tour in 2017 to Nations Cups for Denmark in 2018 and 2019 to become the 28th ranked combination in the world.
