Home soil in Herning
For both the Dufour with Cassidy and the audience the comeback on home soil in Herning at the CDI4 event during Danish Warmblood stallion show will be something very special.
The now 16 year old Atterupgaards Cassidy is ready for comeback at the big international scene in Herning in less than 2 weeks. Atterupsgaards Cassidy and Cathrine Dufour was unfortunately forced to withdraw a short time before leaving for last years WEG in Tryon due to a minor injury. Last time they showed was in Aachen back in July 2018.
Already in the autumn Cassidy was fit for fight again, but Cathrine felt that it was better to keep him home bringing him back to top form before entering the scene again. And with the opportunity to be able to show him again in front of all his Danish fans, the mark in the calendar was made.
Dufour and Cassidy is at the moment no 14 at the World Ranking, while the other Danish international top combination Daniel Bachmann Andersen with Blue Hors Zack is no 11 at the World Ranking.
“Cassidy is such a special boy for me and of course he will have everything special. Our training together with national coach Nathalie zu Sayn-Wittgenstein feels very good, and even though we know each other very well now, there are always details to work on - I love the eyes from Nathalie on the ground”, tells Cathrine.
“Herning is BIG, and for me this year will be extra exciting as I will do a clinic Thursday evening, and here I’ve already been asking my followers on Instagram for some topics they want me to explain, and of course I will try to catch some of them during the clinic. The first part will be with two students and second part I will bring Bohemian to show how I build up my training. I’m top excited for this evening,” says Cathrine.
Additionally Cathrine will bring her talented 5 year old gelding Sauterne by Sezuan for the Young Horse Championship.
CDI4 Grand Prix is scheduled to Friday (8/3) at 8.30, while the CDI4 Grand Prix freestyle is Sunday (10/3) at 14.45.
