Close to personal best and very close run for the victory

Great to have Blue Hors Zack back in the arena after the very unfortunate exit of the CDI-W in Neumünster due to an hoof absence. Luckily he went then back home and the problem was solved immediately, and Daniel was able to keep on training for the next show, s´Hertogenbosch.

Unfortunately a couple of today’s judges still saw Werth ahead of Bachmann, like there were more judging disagreement for today’s Grand Prix.
