Friday with CDI3 Grand Prix at Keysoe
Gareth Hughes showing a very nice balanced test, with just some minor issues, where the walk tour becomes with some tensions, and the subsequent piaffe also is shown with some tension. The overall impression is a very nice a easy picture.
Fiona Bigwood and her newly purchase 14 year old Danish Warmblood Kjærholms Abutsiaq by Michellino made their international debut with a 3rd place. No major errors, but lacking yet more fine tuning for the piaffe tours and transitions. Nice expression for the trot tour, good walk and nice series and good sit for pirouettes, 2nd pirouette becomes bit unbalanced out. Best piaffe with good transition out at the final centerline.
Best placed Danish combination is Ulrik Mølgaard with his Michellino son Michigan - they were placed as no 8 with 67,674%. Nice power for the trot tour. Super walk tour. The first piaffe lack more flow and go, and unfortunately an error at the end of the one times.
Danish Anders Dahl and Sir Donato finished as no 10 with 65,696%. Nice trot tour, the first two piaffe tours are very much forward. A small error in the mid of the one times. Both canter pirouettes becomes a bit unbalanced.
