Danish team was suppose to be represented with two combinations for today's first part of the CDIO5 Grand Prix Special with Anders Dahl with Selten HW as the first of the Danes followed by Anna Zibrandtsen with Arlando.
Unfortunately Arlando became suddenly lame when preparing at the 10 minutes arena. A very unfortunate mishap for the Danish team and for team coach Nathalie zu Sayn-Wittgenstein going into the very last considerations about which combinations for WEG.
Anders Dahl and Selten HW did not show a convincing test today, when going into the first piaffe Selten just rejected and kicked, but Anders managed to show the piaffe although it was not at the spot and still with some tensions, the 2nd piaffe becomes somewhat cautious and lacking clear energy and forward search, good 2 times, by the 15 one times the 3rd change became a bit small hind, nice first pirouette, first change for the 9 one times is not by the riders aides, 2nd pirouette with a bit quick turn, best piaffe at the centerline. Score 68,574%.
