Making their international debut at CDI3 in Herning this year in March, and now winning their first World Cup qualifier is quite an achivement for experienced Dorothee Schneider with the 11-yr old gelding Sammy Davis Jr. This weekend with personal best in both Grand Prix and today´s freestyle tells all about their form and progress.
Jessica von Bredow-Werndl and Unee BB were showing their technical very strong test in a good way. Like yesterday Unee did not really look as if he was top motivated, but still doing his job with good qualities.
New at the World Cup podium today was Danish Daniel Bachmann Andersen with Blue Hors Zack. They are getting more and more experience together in the arena, and at the same time Zack is getting stronger. Also a personal best weekend for Daniel and Zack in both Grand Prix and Grand Prix freestyle. Showing this form at the end of the year is hopefully a very good sign for the next season, as the Danish team for next years WEG in Tryon will presumably be without Anna Kasprzak as she is expecting her first child in the spring. But for sure more "new" Danish combinations will be ready for the next season.
Fabienne Lütkemeier and Fabregaz were also showing top form today with a technical solid test, Highlights were passage and piaffe tours and nice canter pirouettes. As Fabregas is still very young at this level and today with his just 2nd World Cup freestyle ever, the degree of difficulty is still not that high.
Strong error free test from today´s no 5 Danish Agnete Kirk Thinggaard and Jojo AZ. When it all comes together like today, you can just lean back and enjoy this freestyle.
