This part with absolute top combinations - Cosmo, Dante Weltino and Dublet
Cosmo and Sönke Rothenberger was on fire for today’s Grand Prix and well deserved with personal best and breaking the magical +80% with impressive 81,491%.
Fully focused all the way, starting with a slightly open halt and super up and forward, very expressive extended trot without taking risk, good half passes could be a bit more bend in the body though, super halt for rein back but going bit sideways in the rein back and stepping on the fence, tiny unbalance into the first piaffe, nice piaffe, top expression for the passage with lift and of the ground with super angles both front and hind, good extended walk could stretch a bit more, nice collected walk, 2nd piaffe tour in good balance and slightly forward trend, 2-3 trot steps before catching the canter transition, superb canter tour, well balanced zig-zag, super series with power and expression well performed pirouettes and super final centerline. They look like a serious contender for very noble metal not just for this team competition.
Swedens Therese Nilshagen and Dante Weltino OLD are just getting stronger and stronger together.
Nice entering halt, power extended trot with lengthning of the frame and at the same time very balanced bringing him back to collected trot, active half passes, superb halt but a bit quick rein back, easy piaffe and passage with good transitions, good extended walk but lack a bit more relaxation in the shoulders, good 2nd piaffe/passage tour, bit swinging two times, super uphill extended canter, nice zig-zag, 1 times in a good frame, bit big first pirouette while the second becomes more centered, power extended trot, loosing the final meters of passage while Dante wants to make the final halt. 76,040%
Kasey showed a strong and correct test with a few minor issues. The tongue became visual at the left side a couple of times, the zig-zag lacking more balance and clear bending and there crept in errors for the one time serie. Still very well scored with 76,739% taking over the 3rd place, and just in front of TSF Dalera BB with Jessica von Bredow-Werndl.
Both Spains Claudio Castilla Ruiz with Alcaide and Dutch Emmelie Scholtens with Apache showed strong tests. Castilla without any technical issues, while Scholtens had a small canter in the extended trot at the short diagonal and an error for the one times.
