Sunday morning started with Finnish celebrations when Emma Tallberg and Arven managed to make the fastest clear round and took the first place in the International Speed Final 140cm. For Tallberg, who was fourth in the same class last year, today’s win was the first at the five star level.

– It felt really good today, Arven has been fast the whole weekend and is at her best in this kind of classes. I knew that if everything goes well we have a chance to be at the top but I wasn’t necessarily expecting for us to win, Tallberg commented clearly happy after her first five star win.
