Part of Danish Warmblood news today
Both champions of the Danish Warmblood Young Horse Championship in dressage and show Jumping earned the maximum score of 10 for capacity from the test riders, Patrik Kittel and Lars Bak Andersen
The competitors in the Danish Warmblood Young Horse Championship in dressage and show Jumping in Herning have qualified through regional shows in October-November and therefore the championship in Herning works like a final. The young horse competing in Herning are the focus of much attention as the best of them will potentially represent Denmark at the FEI/WBFSH World Championships in Lanaken/Belgium and Ermelo/The Netherlands later this year.
Swedish team rider in dressage, Patrik Kittel stated that the overall level of Danish 5-year old dressage horses was sky-high and that he has ridden a future Olympic horse or two. Patrik Kittel literally said that the mare Queenparks Wendy was out of the scale and he would like to be able to give a higher score than 10, but she earned 10 for rideability as well as for capacity.
– Wow this trot is great and this I want to take this horse home. Holy Moly, this canter is insane, and she does anything I ask from her. Honestly, I think I have never ridden such a talented horse before.
Queenparks Wendy scored 974 points which is one of the highest total scores ever in the young horse championship in Herning. It looks as if the Danish selection committee for the world championships in Ermelo will have fun selection the Danish team this year.
