Top placement for Danish Lone Bang Larsen with Thranegaardens Rostov
International Danish rider Lone Bang Larsen is showing in both the small tour and the big tour at Blue Hors this weekend. For the small tour she brought her 8 year old mare by Blue Hors Romanov. The powerful mare is without any weaknesses with 3 super nice gaits, natural suppleness in the body and eager to do the job in the arena.
