He’s an amazing horse. He’s 10 years old, [and has] so much quality. He did really well today,” said Rivetti about his mount. “This is one of my student’s horses who is in Europe right now, so that’s why I’m riding him.”

Out of the 37 entries that challenged the Ivan Tagle (ARG) course, only eight qualified for the jump-off. Rivetti explained that the course was extremely technical. “The three-point angle was hard with the bending lines and the oxers. In the jump off, I was the first to go. He is a fast horse and I know him very well, so I tried to do all the tight turns, like a racecar a little bit,” Rivetti explained about his jump off strategy.

Rivetti’s first of three weeks at TIEC is off to a great start, and shared that his “Tryon experience] is really good! We are here for three weeks, to move a little bit from California. I came here when they had the Prix de States with one of my students. This place is beautiful; it’s so nice to ride here.”

Captain Z, the 2012 Zangersheide gelding (Calvino Z x Voltaire), is a new mount for Parot. “The horse is new. In the last three-star here, he went clear and got second place. I changed the bit, and am feeling a lot more comfortable. I think he’s coming along well. I am doing the Welcome tomorrow, and then the Grand Prix.”

 

“The course rode really well,” he said after his round. “The first phase is easy for the horses and then it is tough for the speed. I think it is really good for the first day. Tryon is the best,” Parot exclaimed.
