Arrived in top-class sport

Ducati d´Arville // Lara de Liedekerke-Meier

Ducati d'Arville moved from Bavendorf to the stables of Belgian top rider Lara de Liedekerke-Meier as a 5-year-old in 2015. The fact that Elmar Lesch had discovered a world-class horse in this youngster and that Ducati had found exactly the right rider in Lara de Liedekerke-Meier was already evident the following year at the World Championships for 6-year-old event horses in Le Lion d'Angers, where the pair took 6th place. In 2021, the pair won the CCI3*-S competition in Strzegom, followed by several top 5 placings in competitions up to 4* level. Preliminary highlights of their joint success story came in 2023 with 10th place in the prestigous CCI4*-S in Aachen and 2nd place in the CCIO4*-NC-L in Boekelo.
