Strong comeback for top horse Showtime FRH
Saturday with first performance since Grand Prix last year in Aachen, and where Dorothee had to withdraw for the Grand Prix Special as Showtime was not fit. Since then we haven’t seen Showtime, and yesterday was their comeback performance at CDI4 at Ebreichsdorf AUT.
As we know Showtime and Dorothee it was a powerful test all the way. Super balance and suppleness for the trot tour, easy piaffe with good transitions, super passage with lovely elevation and spring, good walk tour, for the canter some tensions creeping in, and a lost of balance for zigzag canter brings them both a bit out of the rhythm, as Showtime loosing the canter before going into the one times at the diagonal.
Grand Prix Special
+80% comeback score today was fully deserved. So much expression, power and suppleness for the trot / passage tour, super walk tour, easy piaffe tours, good canter still with some tensions for the series but Dorothee manage without any technical issues, beautiful final.
They are ready for the German team, and the next month they just have to re-build their partnership in the arena, and cross finger for staying healthy.
