It did not look as if there were many free seats left in the arena for tonights stallion show at KK Cup. This year all the new licensed stallions were just shown by hand.
Fashion in Black (2015) by For Romance I / Lauries Crusador XX - looks like a very interesting young stallion with suppleness and without tensions - lovely new stallion for Holkenbrink. Shown by hand.
Diamond Deluxe (2014) by Diamond Magic / Samarant under rider Steffi Ahlert from Rüscher-Konermann. Medium sized stallion with nice power and off the ground for the trot and canter and a good walk - a very interesting stallion. In September 2017 he scored 3 x 9 for his basic gaits at reitpferdeprüfung.
Bel Amour (2015) by Belantis / Ampere - long legged impressive stallion. Shown by hand.
Escamillo (2015) by Escolar / Rohdiamant - nice self carriage when shown by hand. Both stallions presented by Hengststation Schult.
Vainqueur by Vivaldi / Rubioso N was listed with Hubertus Schmidt in the saddle, but instead with his daily rider Katarina Hemmer. Lovely stallion but today´s presentation was lacking a bit more control and balance.
Fürst Wiliam by Fürst Wilhelm / Lord Sinclair I shown by Beatrice Buchwald. Very nice presentation with good power and lovely steady and supple frame. It looks like he has become stronger bodywise.
Asgar´s Ibiza by Desperado / Jazz shown by Emmelie Scholtens. Nice concentrated and obedient all the way today with nice relaxation.
World Champion Don Martillo by Don Juan de Hus / Benetton Dream shown by Ann-Christin Wienkamp. Superb temperament and still very attentive, showing his 10 for the walk.
Final combination was Ingrid Klimke with Franziskus. Klimke is doing a great job, but you just have to be both Klimke and Franziskus fan to be over the moon for the qualities shown tonight.
