For the horses in the 5* class in Compiegne, the Grand Prix Special and the Kur to music were ridden on Sunday. Lottie chose to ride Everdale in the Kur to music.
Everdale, Lord Leatherdale x Negro bred by Piet Kluytmans from Tilburg, was in good shape and showed why he belongs to the top of the world. He trots with great technique and scope, piaffes like clockwork, his passage is high off the ground with power and impulsion. The canter is incredibly uphill and the pirouettes turned on a dime, in short, everything a top dressage horse needs. The score in the freestyle came to 85.675%, which was again an improvement on his personal best!
Looking back on three days of sport in Compiegne, we cannot be more than pleased with the form of these three horses: Lars who scores a PB in both the Grand Prix and the Freestyle to music, Jackson who proves to be a real future horse for Lottie and also gets a PB in the Prix st. Georges and then of course Everdale who is still getting more powerful and more consistent and also scored a PB in the freestyle to music.
