Proving beyond a shadow of a doubt that she and her horse, Ringwood Magister, deserve to be considered one of the finest horse and rider combinations in the world, Tiana Coudray put in a decisive cross country round to place 10th at the Aachen CICO3* at the 2013 CHIO Aachen. The diverse and challenging course proved difficult for many, but Tiana and "Finn" made it look easy.

Coudray (Ojai, CA) and Ringwood Magister had a stellar round over Rüdiger Schwarz's cross country course with 35 jumping efforts. The pair made light work of the extensive, challenging course. Adding 14.8 time penalties to their dressage score, she and Jatial Inc.'s 12-year-old Irish Sport Horse gelding finished in tenth place with a score of 57.8.
"I am over the moon," exclaimed Coudray. "He was absolutely playing with the course today. It obviously caused so much trouble. It was very, very tough. Very experienced riders had trouble. I went later in the day and I had not seen a clear round all morning, but he gave me such a good feel out there on the challenging course."
Congratulations, Tiana! You did an amazing job and we are all so very proud of you.
