    Todd leads NZ eventers in Aachen

    Double Olympic gold medallist Sir Mark Todd sits fifth at the Aachen three-star event in Germany, leading a four-strong NZ team going into the final phase.

    22 July 2017

    New Zealand's vastly experienced eventing team have returned mixed results after two events at the Aachen three-star event in Germany.

    Sir Mark Todd, riding Leonidas II, heads the Kiwis in fifth place after adding one time fault from the showjumping to his 37.10 dressage penalties.

    Blyth Tait, riding Darius, finished 10th in the showjumping and sits in 21st place overall on 51.40 points with just the cross-country phase remaining.

    Late call-up Jock Paget on Xavier Faer - who placed third in Badminton this year for Tim Price - is 27th with 54.60 points.

    The New Zealanders sit fourth in the team competition, trailing Germany, Australia and Sweden.

    Tim Price on Ringwood Sky Boy, sits 30th on 55.10 points while his second mount, Cooley Showtime, is 31st on 55.70.

    German riders dominate the competition, holding the first three positions.

    Ingrid Klimke, aboard Horseware Hale Bob OLD, sits first on 34.50 points, fractionally ahead of Michael Jung and Biosthetique-Sam FBW (34.70).

    Sandra Affufarth is third on 35.80 with Opgun Louvo.
