Pathetic and Dorothee Schneider

Friday with international debut in Grand Prix placed no 3 with 71,152% and today Dorothee took the victory in the Grand Prix Special in convincing style with 75,064%.

For sure it did not look like a debut ride today. Super harmony with great expression with the just 10 year old mare by Quaterback - Casado. Still lacking a bit more security and power for the piaffe tours, but Dorothee manage to show the exercise with nice balance and without any pressure. Lots of highlights during the test shown in a lovely balance.

International Grand Prix Special debut for Anna Kasprzak with Quarton

Yet another Quaterback top horse enters the international arena, this time with Danish Anna Kasprzak in the saddle. Quarton is just 9 year old and also doing his first international Grand Prix Special successfully today. Lovely power all the way, nice regular passage, lacking bit more sharpness for the transitions into piaffe. The first piaffe becomes bit limited as he is obviously not familiar with the transition and the exercise at that letter yet, the next two piaffe tours becomes better. Nice half passes, good extensions with nice transitions, good series and well managed pirouettes. Great achievement and also a great international debut weekend for Anna Kasprzak with a new youngster.

Lone Bang Larsen with Bakkely´s Onandt shows a strong test, unfortunately with a few issues for the final part of the test today, but still manage at good score above 70%.

Danish Warmblood gelding Rossetti ridden by Finnish Henri Rouste is a quality power horse, but still not able to show the entire test with the necessary relaxation. Still just 10 year old and with huge potential.
