France: La Baule Race Report

Pamela Burton

The ladies ruled the day at La Baule, France May 8 when 21 yr. old Italian rider Diana Origgi, riding the 8 yr old Jasmineh (Falstaf x Desire Delia Gazza) won the ride in a ride time of 9:07:43. Sophie Arnaud from France riding Dalton Du Capimont ( Jano x Missmis) came in 2nd, while Angela Origgi (It) riding Jadana ( Dotek x )took third place.

Diana Origgi said her ride went very well, and even though it was the first 160 km for both she and her horse, they were both experienced at smaller rides and well prepared. Italian Chef d$(Beq(Buipe, Sergio Tommasi, said that he had not placed Diana on the Team, as neither she nor her horse had as yet completed a 160 km ride. This did leave her with the opportunity to compete a bit harder. When the 3rd team member was eliminated early in the ride, he gave her 26 yr old sister, Angela, the go-ahead to ride more competitively as well.
