The spur at the back-

of the flower seems important in confirming the identification. Do you have a shot of it?

I'm not an expert but I think this might be a hybrid because the 'face' of the flower is relatively narrow and the orange centre isn't particularly obscured by the white 'hairs'. The spur does appear pale and notched though, so it could be a pure riviniana.
