Tom Noone from North Abington, MA, the only U.S. rider to compete at the
Dressage World Cup Final in Aarhus, Denmark from April 6-8, 2001, made a
satisfactory start by finishing in tenth place in the Short Grand Prix, the
first test of the Finals. Riding the 13 year-old Westphalian gelding,
Fresco, Noone scored 65.66% for his test and was very happy. "The horse was
a little bit spooky and tense in the surroundings but was really good
considering this was only his third time indoors and our first World Cup
Final. I'm really happy with him, he made no mistakes," he commented.
Germany is dominating the top three places on the leader board at this stage
with Ulla Saltzbeber in the lead on her Olympic partner, Rusty, with a score
of 75.07% followed by Rudolf Zellinger riding Livijno on 72.54% and Sydney
Olympic silver medalist, Isabell Werth with Anthony FRH in third on a score
Noone does not have any classes today but will be practicing his Freestyle
test in preparation for the Final round on Sunday.
