A big step into the international arena
A surreal experience and a dream came true is the way Danish amateur rider Sanne Svendsen describes her weekend at CDI Flyinge. “It´s always been a dream entering the international scene and actually being here now felt a bit odd. I’m very pleased about our performance today and was a bit disappointed about our Grand Prix as I felt we were missing some more sharpness. I’m over the moon with todays placement and it really gives me the confidence to try this international level another time.”
“It´s been a great adventure being able to educate and develop Hannah Montana W all the way, with the best supervisor Cathrine Dufour,” tells Sanne.
Danish Sanne Svendsen and Danish Warmblood mare Hannah Montana W by Blue Hors Doolittle / Sydney bred by Henrik Wiborg made their international debut yesterday in the Grand Prix and were placed in todays CDI3 Grand Prix Special as no 4 with 69,276%.
Today’s winner Swedish Sandra Dahlin with her homebred mare Ichi brings a very special story. Many years ago Sandra and her mom brought a lottery during Scandinavium international horse event and won a mare. This mare Sandra started riding but unfortunately she got injured and they agreed having foal, this foal is today’s winner 13 year old Ichi by Boticelli / Donnerschlag. A very powerful mare with super qualities and expression all the way - winning score 73,255%. And what a fantastic reaction from Dahlin when finishing her top test.
For the top talented 8 year old mare Heiline´s Danciera the exercises for today’s debut at Grand Prix Special became a bit confusing, but nevertheless still with a lot of highlights and the top quality is obvious. Next international event for the young mare will be the CDI at Blue Hors in October.
