Star-studded line-up for opening leg of new Reem Acra FEI World Cup™ Dressage series
by Louise Parkes
Double-Dutch champions Adelinde Cornelissen and her great gelding Parzival will head up a star-studded field for the opening leg of the Reem Acra FEI World Cup™ Dressage 2012/2013 series at Odense, Denmark next weekend.
The collection of early points on the road to the series Final that will take place in Gothenburg, Sweden next April, is always desirable. And while defending champion Cornelissen needs only to show that both she and her bright-chestnut horse are in competitive form, the partnership that claimed individual silver at this summer’s London Olympic Games will surely be the ones to beat. They will face strong opposition, however, from some of the other big names of this sport which continues its development, and dramatic growth in popularity, with every passing year.
