In the third qualifier of the Western European League in Frankfurt Dutch Laurens van Lieren had a wonderful ride and became third behind winner Isabell Werth and runner up Silvia Iklé. Laurens van Lieren was very happy with the reward for his Freestyle. “I was very proud on Hexagon’s Ollright being perfectly with me. I gave more freeness and length in the neck now as the judges-remarks of the Grand Prix encouraged me to do so. In the Freestyle today things are all getting into the right place now”, he said.

Chairman Stephen Clarke also liked the test of Laurens van Lieren and Hexagon’s Ollright very much. “To me they did a super test! The extensions, the relaxation, it all was there. The confidence-level between the two has improved enormously since the last time I saw the pair. It was a pleasure to watch and his well-timed Queen-music emphasized it all.” The next World Cup™ qualifier for Laurens van Lieren will be Mechelen short after Christmas and than he is looking forward to compete in Amsterdam!
