Fiona Bigwood and Orthilia Stronger Than Ever

At their second event this year, Fiona Bigwood (GBR) and Atterupsgaard Orthilia were better than ever. In Saumur, France, the pair had a new personal best in the Grand Prix, the end result for the British rider and the 11-year-old Oldenburger mare was 77,600 percent. Orthilia already showed her potential at the European Championship in Aachen even though they only started the big tour a year ago. It seems they are a steady pair for the Olympic Games in Rio. Second place in the Grand Prix went to Bigwood’s team colleague Michael Eilberg and Marakov (70,460 percent), third place to British Jorinde Verwimp and 16-year-old Tiamo (69,720 percent).
