Germans Dominate at FEI World Single Driving Championships in Austria
After four days of top-level sport, peaking in an exciting finale in the obstacle driving competition, Germany’s Dieter Lauterbach won the individual gold medal at the FEI World Single Driving Championships in Piber, Austria, ahead of Weronika Kwiatek from Poland and Dutch driver Saskia Siebers.
The German team won the Nations competition, Poland took home the silver medal and Switzerland claimed bronze.
Torrential rain made the second dressage day a mud-splattered affair, but made for some spectacular photography as the carriages careered through the mud and water. The competition was even stopped for a couple of hours in the afternoon so the arena could dry out a bit.
