Some difficulties with the series for today´s CDI4 Grand Prix Freestyle in Mechelen (video of winner)

Young Belgium Jorinde Verwimp and her 17 year old gelding Tiamo took today´s CDI4 Grand Prix freestyle victory.

From the start of their test it actually did not look that promissing, as Tiamo refused doing the first piaffe, and you could easily see from the expression of Jorinde´s face that this wasn´t in the plan. But from that first exercise not shown, Tiamo seem to be in the mood for doing the rest of the job with good qualities. Like nearly all the other competitors today´s series were also with error, but Jorinde manage to re do the ones without error but still with some tensions. 

Also Patrik van der Meer and Zippo were struggling with the series today, as both their two times and one times were with errors. 

Begium Isabel Cool was also showing two horses, Freedom TC for small tour and Aranco V for the big tour. Both horses very well presented with nice power and light satistied contact all the way.

Danish Carina Cassøe Krüth and her 14 year old Danish Warmblood mare were placed as no 7 with their Grand Prix freestyle debut, showing high light with pirouettes and piaffe/passage work today.
