Isabell was ones again unbeatable with a well polished and sharp test together with Weihegold OLD, showing the high quality piaffe and passage tours.

But today´s absolute highlight without any doubt was Gal with his Danish Warmblood stallion Zonik. Today they showed a more safe and obedient test without any technical issues. Nice piaffe on the spot, with nice transition and expressive passage. Superb extensions and top class walk tour, super nice well balanced pirouettes. Nice series where you could wish for a bit more clear forward flow.

Can´t wait to follow this pair towards the next big Championships.

Some other H2R comments during the class:

Weihegold and Werth - so much experience bringing it into the arena EVERY single time. Small tension from walk before transition to canter - clear series today. Winner with 88.540%

Damsey and Helen were really strutting their stuff together - what a lovely pair. Super power and balance, superb frame, very little "work" up their for Helen today - easy aides all the way - pleasure to watch, just until the tongue suddenly became visual after the walk tour - what a pity - Helen retires, not much to do.

Deja and Kittel were dancing through their "Isn´t she lovely" freestyle. Swing, power and expression - every step suits the beat from Stevie Wonder (small error for 1 times series)
