For the first time since the outbreak of the Corona Pandemic, Horses and Dreams is back in its completely original version. About 600 horses are on the showgrounds of the Kasselmann family in Hagen, Germany. The set-up of the competition is as usual: Spacious stands, shops, restaurants… Really everything has been thought of!
Charlotte Fry will start with three horses: Dark Legend in the 4* Grand Prix for the freestyle, Everdale in the 4* Grand Prix for the special and his son Inclusive in the 3* Grand Prix for the special.
The youngest of the three is Inclusive and he was the first to enter the arena. The 9-year-old son of Everdale, bred by the Enting family from Grolloo out of an Uptown mare, competed for the second time in the international Grand Prix. With highlights such as the piaffe, passage and the extended trot and canter, but also some points for improvement, he scored 71.065%. Again a new PB for this combination!
The day after, Inclusive was again the first to participate, but this time for the Grand Prix Special. Awake and fresh as always, he marched through his first Special at international level. Again a score of more than 71%, a more than successful debut in this competition!
In the afternoon it is Everdale’s turn. After the European Championship, which also took place in these arenas, it’s the first time that Everdale is competed. The test seemed more relaxed, in a good frame, shows a piaffe out of the book and no mistakes. Everdale is on his way to a super form. The total score is exactly 74%, which might have been 2% more…
On Friday the dressage will continue with the Grand Prix for the Freestyle in which Dark Legend will appear at the start. The 4* Special will be held on Saturday afternoon and the 4* Freestyle to music is on the program for Saturday evening.
