Today´s Intermediaire II with Danish top debut placements
International debut victory for Anna Kasprzak with Rock Star, placed no 3 another international debut combination Betina Jæger with Skovlunds Garmin G, and placed 4th yet another international debut for Carina Cassøe Krüth with May-Day Graftebjerg, and final placement went to another debut combination Michael Søgaard with Gallardo V.
Danish Daniel Bachmann Andersen and his just 8 yr old international debut horse Blue Hors Zepter, show some great moments, but still with some "baby" errors.
