The now 14 year old Du Soleil by De Niro / Caprimond is a horse which now really has settled at the international Grand Prix tour together with his long time rider Kristy Oatley.
The quite small surrounding at the dressage arena in Hamburg did not disturb Du Soleil. Super easy and top expressive trot tour with power, but today not explosive extensions, smooth half passes and good halt with rein back. Good walk tour. Nice passage/piaffe/passage tours, just a small lack of balance out of the piaffe tours, nice series, super well balanced zig-zag, pirouettes were there is still room for improvement, but with nice control.
