It was a kind of "ghost arena" in beautiful weather at the Deutsche Bank arena in Aachen, as you could hardly not see any spectators. But still the competition was good eventhough it was not CHIO mood. 

The 11 year old gelding by Dimaggio / Santander H made his debut last year in July together with Emile Faurie and since then we haven´t seen them.

It was a very smooth and nice "come back" showing two effortless tests with just an error for the one times in the Grand Prix, and Dono Di Maggio suits Faurie very well. Nice natural suppleness, good piaffe/passage and nice series. 

Today Adelinde Cornelissen and Aqiedo came 2nd with 71,745%. They show a very controlled test with nice expression and good balance. Today´s test with just a small error for the 15 one time tempies.
