DRESSAGE: Podium place for Merveldt in Italy
on 27 March 2019
Ireland's Anna Merveldt and Forget Me Not 2 on the podium at the Ornago CDI3* in Italy, writes Paul Nolan

IRELAND's Anna Merveldt secured a podium finish on the final day of the CDI 3* show in Ornago, Italy today (Sunday) when scoring 69.650% with Forget Me Not 2 for third place in the Intermédiaire I Freestyle to Music class.

Ornago proved to be a good show for the Irish duo of Anna Merveldt and James Connor. Two-time Olympian Merveldt was fifth in the Prix St-Georges class and fourth in the Intermédiaire I class with the 15-year-old Deutsches Sportpferd gelding Forget Me Not 2.

On an impressive debut as an international combination, Merveldt and the 10-year-old Lusitano gelding Esporim placed ninth in both the Grand Prix and Grand Prix Special big tour classes. James Connor and his 14-year-old Oldenburg gelding Casino' Royal were also in good form with a top seven finish in the Grand Prix Special and an eighth place in the Grand Prix at the three-star show in Italy.
