- Laura Kraut took home the top prize at the Longines Beijing Equestrian Masters CSI2* Grand Prix in Beijing over the weekend. Kraut and U-Prova (a borrowed horse*) bested a field of 35 mostly Chinese riders for the win.
Nine riders were clear after the first round of competition over an eleven fences course. Kraut, the only American in the class, was joined by three Germans, four Chinese riders, and one representing Hong Kong. Laura guided the KWPN-Stallion U-Prova quickly around the shortened track and ended up 1.51. seconds better than second place finisher Christian Ahlmann. China's Xiaokelatiabayi finished third.
