Astrid Appels
Morgan Barbançon's 17-year old Painted Black was not entirely even in the trot extensions and half passes but the duo produced floating passage work and rode to Anky's brilliant Tango music

Hans Peter Minderhoud and Johnson showed very good lateral canter work but had mistakes in the changes. The bay stallion dragged his right hind on occasion which showed in some passage and piaffe transitions

Nathalie zu Sayn-Wittgenstein
Digby

Astrid Appels
Nathalie zu Sayn-Wittgenstein had some problems presenting Digby on top form today. The horse lacked regularity in the trot and had a problem with the exit from one pirouette. The tempi changes were lovely

Nip Tuck

Carl Hester is an absolute master at making a not so gifted horse look great. The long and slow Nip Tuck shone brightly in the freestyle as Hester makes it all look so easy.

Astrid Appels
Another top talent for the future: Diederik van Silfhout and Arlando. Van Silfhout presented this horse beautiful but the green GP horse lacked ground cover in walk and canter, but he's very lightfooted in piaffe and passage

Legolas

Steffen Peters and Legolas struggled with the regularity in the rhythm today. The nose could have come a bit more out as well. The piaffe and passage work was very much off the ground

Donnperignon

Astrid Appels
Danish Anna Kasprzak rode her Phil Collins' freestyle with Donnperignon who showed some of his best piaffe work ever. She lost some impulsion in the pirouettes and scope in the canter half passes

Michael Eilberg
Half Moon Delphi

Astrid Appels
Michael Eilberg on the fantastic mare Half Moon Delphi, such scope and elasticity she has in her gaits. Eilberg's shaking with his hands in the half halts made her mouth go open. Super ride with more potential for the future

Don Auriello
14_weg_vilhelmson_donauriello_1904
Astrid Appels
Tinne Vilhelmson had a very high degree of technical difficulty in her freestyle and pulled out all the stops but Don Auriello could not maintain such high level of performance all the way to the end
