Anders Dahl and Selten HW got bronze at the 2017 Danish Championships, but their Aachen grand prix lacked polish

Kasey Perry-Glass was riding a strong Grand Prix test (although the horse had the nose behind the vertical) but when they lost the canter on the centreline, they missed the left pirouette and the score plummeted. Pity.

Swiss Marcela Krinke-Susmelj and Atterupgaards Molberg (by Michellino) have been coming to Aachen every year since 2011. This is their seventh, consecutive time competing in Aachen!

Malin Nilsson made her debut on the Swedish team in the Aachen Nations' Cup. Her Bon-Ami was very obedient and executed a nice, focused test, but he had the mouth got too often open on the right

Inessa Merkulova on Mister X. The Russian star was a hand held in the trot half passes, but did a good rein back and shone in the piaffe and passage. In the tempi changes he gets constricted in front

Emile Faurie on Lollipop. The 13-year old Hanoverian has a beautiful silhouette in piaffe and passage but lost the uphill tendency a bit in the canter work, although the pirouette right was superb

Therese Nilshagen on Dante Weltino lacked sharpness and focus as well. A big mistake in the two's made the score drop even though the pirouettes and trot half passes were great

Imperio

Astrid Appels
Hubertus Schmidt and Imperio probably lost their team spot with their 71.371% earning test. The Trakehner was just not sharp enough behind and struggled with the piaffes

Olivia Lagoy-Weltz on Rassing's Lonoir. Not as on point as in the Rotterdam Grand Prix with a trailing right hind in the piaffe and swaying tempi changes, but the trot half passes and extensions were fabulous
