Week seven at WEF kicked off with a Wednesday win for McLain Ward aboard a horse he says is never ridden between shows, just turned out.
Fresh off their victory in the WEF Challenge Cup on Friday, Allen and the Irish Sport Horse gelding put forth a blistering effort.
“He is an experienced equitation horse and today was my first time riding him in the ring,” said Krawitt following his Section A win.
The Israeli rider took the $37,000 Douglas Elliman Real Estate 1.45m CSI5*; top Canadian was Erynn Ballard in 6th with Ronja.
Tiffany Foster and Brighton grab 6th place in the CSI3*; all WEF feature classes are available to watch for free both live and on-demand.
“The horses are fresh ... They feel like they got a year younger with a year off," said the Olympic gold medalist following his win.
Ballard captured her second major win of the week, this time aboard Harvester, while fellow Canadian Amy Millar was 3rd riding Christiano.
The pair take the premiere round of the series as the first week of WEF gets underway; Ballard also grabs 5th spot with Kamilla D.
Ramiro Quintana (ARG) started his WEF show season off on a high note with a victory in the $8,000 Douglas Elliman Real Estate 1.45m Jumpers.
