Another top performance by a St. Schufro offspring at the WCYH 2023.
In 2022, the pair won the gold in the 5-year-old class, and now the St. Schufro daughter, St. Paris, and her rider Victoria have once again taken a beautiful lead in the 6-year-old class at the WCYH in Ermelo!
Blue Hors St. Schufro’s daughter, Lyngbjergs St. Paris (by Blue Hors St. Schufro/Blue Hors Rockefeller), and her rider Victoria Vallentin took the lead in the preliminary qualification of the 6-year-old class at the Longines FEI WBFSH World Breeding Dressage Championships for Young Horses in Ermelo. In 2022, the pair won the gold medal in the 5-year-old class!
Victoria and St. Paris started the test with a light-footed and active trot with good carrying ability – clearly the most superior trot of the class! Throughout the test, the St. Schufro daughter went easily on the hand and maintained a beautiful frame with good transitions, as well as a good halt and rein-back.
Their scores in the preliminary round were 9.3 for trot, 8.5 for walk, 8.8 for canter, 8.8 for submission, 9.3 for perspective, and an overall score of 89.400%, which secured a fantastic 2nd place.
Another fantastic ride on Paris! Wow, what a feeling she gives! 2nd place in the first round of the WCYH for 6-year-olds!
