A trio of New Zealand eventers are still well in touch with the leaders at the end of the dressage at the FEI Eventing World Breeding Championships at Mondial du Lion in France.
Tim Price and Happy Boy scored 30.1 penalty points to sit in 13th spot in the 67-strong field in the CCIYH3*-L for seven-year-olds, well in touch with leader Josephine Schnaufer (GER) and Viktor 107 on 26.7.
In the CCIYH2*-L for six-year-olds, Caroline Powell remains the best of the New Zealanders, sitting in 14th spot aboard Greenacres Special Cavalier on a score of 32.4 penalty points. Jesse Campbell and Global Candy Boy is three spots back on 33.4.
Caroline is also competing aboard Rock Midnight who scored 36 penalty points and sits in 32nd place in the 42-strong field. Yasmin Nathalie Sanderson (NOR) and Inchello DHI leads on 26.3 but it is very tight at the top, with just less than four penalty points separating the top 10.
