A huge class of the best 4 year old Swedish Warmblood horses
From watching the entire class the over all impression was unfortunately with lack of basic qualities for the Swedish young horses.
Lack of power, expression and suppleness, and for the majority also lack of balance. Of course the environment is very different as they are all qualified at the outdoor season, and now has to do the final indoor.
Once again Swedish Warmblood has invited British international judge Isobel Wessels as part of the judging team. Super nice and constructive comments, as it often became somewhat difficult the express clear enthusiasm, when the qualities obviously were missing.
From H2R point view the offsprings by Skovens Rafael just brings something extra. And of course the combination of Severo and Springbank is something special. The walk was definitely worth more than and 8,5.
Brilliant Blend by Blue Hors Don Romantic / Hohenstein also showed nice qualities and nice natural frame, and is the last horse qualified for Saturday´s test riding by Charlotte Dujardin, as the 10 best horses will be tested. Testing starts at 17:00.
