Louisdor Preis final ready for Daniel and Veneziano
Friday´s victory from the Danish combination was cemented today. Blue Hors Veneziano is just 8 year old, he is by Vivaldi/Donnerhall/Pik Bube, his dam Fabine is full sister to legendary Blue Hors Don Schufro.
They showed a strong test without any technical issues, just a small tension into the first piaffe. Subsequent international judge did his live comments about the combinations and he was having a chat together with Kim Kreling with the rider.
About Daniel and Veneziano´s test Plewa said:
This is an experienced rider, he has entered the international scene this winter with more top performances. It is a rider that understands his profession - lovely riding, compliment.
"The signature of this test is that the horse is presented in a wonderful frame all the way including for the extensions, and the rider is able to use the positive power from the horse, as after the tempo changes where the rider gave the horse a well deserved path on the neck for a well performed exercise, and the horse is really with his rider. The first two piaffe tours were a bit cautious and with a small disturb for the first one, but with the final piaffe he has shown his real qualities, where he is lovely off the ground and has shown great dynamic likely for the extensions."
And Daniel says: "The most important for me was the horse had a good feeling in the arena, so that I did´t ask to much, not a big issue for me if he made an error, but the fact that he got better during the test, that´s always a good sign, and as Plewa said the last piaffe was also the best, and that´s super. This is a horse that I´ve been educated all the way myself together with my trainer, so of course I´m proud and happy."
