On Sunday April 28th the Grand Prix debut of our top stallion Everdale was planned, as well as the upcoming talent Nespresso. In Nispen Everdale showed to have all the qualities to become a very good Grand Prix horse, just like Nespresso who also managed to close his class in a winning way.
The combination scored 70.38 and immediately won the class. “I am so happy with how he did,” said an enthusiastic Charlotte Fry, who also successfully started Everdale at the U25. “He was a bit fresh. This was his first outdoor competition and lately he has run a number of stallion shows with good music. He was a bit too enthusiastic in the extended trot, but otherwise it went very well. He has no weaknesses and runs through the test with such ease. Exercises that I think are still tough, like the zig-zag in the canter, he runs through them without problems. We scored well across the board and we even got 8.5 for the piaffe”.
The Inter II was won by the also debuting Nespresso (Negro x Tenerife) with Anne van Olst. This great stallion ran his very first competition ever. He shows all heavy exercises with great ease and scored 67.35%.
