    Cándido Tardío and Magín Mateu are winners at Albacete

    The Dressage CDN *** ANCCE CUP Competition took place on Friday, the 22nd and Saturday, the 23rd of May, at the IFAB facilities in Albacete. Some 65 horses participated, of which over 90% were PRE horses. Of all the participating horses and riders, two of the ANCCE Team horses were  most outstanding: “ANCCE Pilatos”, ridden by Cándido Tardío, owned by Yeguada El Moralejo, who once again triumphed in the tests for five year-olds and “ANCCE Latigo VI”, ridden by his owner, Magín Mateu, in the tests for six year-olds.

    Both were awarded the highest score in not only the preliminary test, but also the final test.  Interestingly, these scores were also the same. “ANCCE Pilatos” and “ANCCE Latigo VI” both finished on a final score of an average of 70.800% in the preliminary and 71.400% in the final.

    Jorge Conde, President of the Judges, confirmed the good track record of these two horses. “The progress of the horses from one year to the next has been very noticeable; they have shown this in their good attitude to work, in maintaining the tendencies of last year and in confirming the exercises at their respective levels.”
    “It was these two tests in which we have seen the best level, although the level in general is good, but it must be highlighted that among the judges, we have all agreed in our opinions of the good presentations by the five- and six-year-old horses (and their riders)”
    Little by little the success of ANCCE Team is being confirmed, although most of the season still lies ahead. Keep up the good work and continue with the same zeal that you have been doing up to now, and congratulations to Cándido Tardío and Magín Mateu.
