The 35 best Danish Warmblood Young Horses, 5 year old qualified regional during last autumn, and the 24 best from the first two days at Herning went on to test riding by Patrik Kittel. 15 horses Saturday and 9 Sunday to be tested.
It was a very educational, talking and positive Kittel in the saddle of the young horses, and he gave both the audience and the horses some very good time at Boxen arena.
In total Kittel gave a clear 10 five times when testing the 24 horses.
In front and outstanding all the way
The big impressive top mover Zhaplin Langholt by Glock´s Zonik / Stedinger presented by Andreas Helgstrand stood out from the start to the final. And it was also obvious when Kittel got in the saddle that the gelding just did everything he was asking for and at the same time with top qualities. Well deserved 10 for both ride ability and potential and overall clear winner.
"That was really a pleasure to do, I have to say"
Day 1 at the test riding the mare Atterupgaards Mildura DWB by Blue Hors Zack / Lord Sinclair presented by Carina Cassøe Krüth gave Patrik Kittel the best feeling, and he gave her a 10 for ride ability. After the testing Kittel said: "I have to say this horse gave me everything I want in a test riding, it has everything walk, trot and canter, ok it could reach a bit more for the trot. It has a quick explosive trot, fantastic in the hand, I gave her a 10 for ride ability".
10 for ride ability and 10 for potential
Day 2 with words of praise from test rider Patrik Kittel about Delizia by Fürstenball / De Noir ridden by Anne Troensegaard.
"Nice contact, good light search for the hand, trot through the body, nice hot for the canter. Fantastic horse for the future, OMG".
At the same time Kittel appointed Delizia as the most happy horse.
