H2R comments during the test:

Bella Rose / Isabell Werth GER 

Nice halt, power lightness for the first diagonal, superb reach and crossing for half pass BEST OF THE DAY, direct to passage, so easy in and out and keep the rhythm all the way for the passage, another top half pass, this just WOW lightness, bit tense begin of extended walk tour, good collected walk, WOW just asking here and Bella is ready doing her thing, wind is just blowing while Werth is enjoying the trip, nice transition, good zigzag canter, small tension begin 2 times, bit of tension for 1 times, good extended canter, lack more clear sit and canter rhythm is a bit lost for both pirouettes, nice final extended trot, looks like Werth was shaking her head for the final piaffe, it is unbelievable YES. 5% ahead of the silver.
