Isabell Werth shared a fun video today of her riding her 19-year old retired super star Satchmo without saddle or bridle. The Hanoverian gelding (by Sao Paulo x Legat) is still looking fresh, fit and happy.
Without problems Werth rides the piaffe, passage, one tempi changes and working pirouettes on her happy camper.
"I'm so happy to show you Satchie with his 19 years of age top fit and without aids doing the toughest movements in a halter," Werth explained. "And I'm without spurs or whip."
