the strong Spanish lady rider, jumps on the top of the podium in the Free-Style
Grand Prix at San Patrignano, which today closed the first Italian dressage
world Cup qualifier held in the facilities of the largest European rehabilitation
centre from drug addiction. Beatriz Ferrer-Salat, who recently won the
Mechelen Grand Prix in Belgium confirmed, with this performance, to be
at present the lady rider in best shape in the dressage world scene and
to form together with her Bauvalais an unbeatable combination. The surprising
Italian lady rider Laura Conz got near to this result on her Fibrin, putting
up an impeccable performance, greeted with a burst of applause by more
than 1000 people attending the show. For the six times Italian National
Champion is the best result in international competitions achieved till
now and, as Cesare Croce underlines, "it's a further confirmation
that we can compete to top level also in this discipline and have concrete
ambitions for the next future".
The Italian lady rider
declared as well: "This result is super and there is everybody's
work behind it: the grooms, the owner of the horse, the Federation which
always supported and spurred me on, I can't do without mentioning my choreographer
Galbiani, who helped me to choose my music".
San Patrignano results upset the 2001-2001 World Cup standings: with three qualifiers left before the Final at S_Hertogenbosh (Holland), the provisional ranking list turns out deeply changed. The Swiss rider Ramsaier , 3rd , jumps to the top of the CDI-W standings, preceding Beatriz Ferrer-Salat, who gains two position. In the 3rd place, Gonnelien Rothenbergen; also the Dutch lady rider went over Isabelle Werth, before San Patrignano at the first place and now 4th. An excellent improvement also for the Italian lady rider Laura Conz, who jumps from the 23° place to the 9°, settling herself amongst the top riders of this discipline.
