Today was another proud moment for Danish dressage
The two Danish top combinations Cathrine Dufour/Atterupgaards Cassidy placed 4th (84,835%) and Daniel Bachmann Andersen/Blue Hors Zack placed 6th (82,195%), while Danish based Spanish rider Severo Jurado Lopez/Deep Impact finished as no 8 (81,125%).
Even though the Australian and American judges unfortunately not agreed about Cathrine Dufour and Atterupgaards Cassidy for today's well deserved 2nd place, it was still clear from the British, German and Danish judges that her freestyle and level was obviously above the two American combinations.
The only small issue today was when Cathrine is going through the corner preparing for the one times, Cassidy is just a split second quicker than Cathrine, and he remember of course the trot transition in the Grand Prix. For sure Dufour is more than annoyed by herself today, as this was a pure rider error.
Daniel Bachmann Andersen and Blue Hors Zack just proved their strength ones again today with a top level freestyle, and still a small room for improvements.
Severo Jurado Lopez and Deep Impact showed a strong freestyle with high degree of difficulty and without any technical issues. Exactly the Danish judge saw the test at the level where it should have been - 83,750%.
