As co-commentator international judge Jean Michel Roudier said at FEI-tv today “Isabell Werth is able to make her own team with her top horses and still being in the medals”.
The young ones were on fire
When Werth and Kittel are at the start list it is always a very difficult challenge for the competitors. And both top experienced riders showed great performances, and with Kittels freestyle debut together with Delatio scoring nearly 81% - that’s awesome.
Spains Juan Matute Guimon with personal best score with Quantico 77,070%, Morgan Barbancon Mestre with Sir Donnerhall II showed a strong test scoring 75,880% - nearly up to her personal best, while Swedens Antonia Ramel with Brother de Jeu just stepped into the -80% league at freestyle with a 3rd place scoring 80,060%. Last time they showed freestyle was at Falsterbo scoring 74,660%.
Overall picture with a powerful and top motivated Brother de Jeu, with strong passage and piaffe tour, super nice pirouettes and nice series, and icing on the top was her very young and modern choice of music which really suits all the way.
