Zepter & Cristian win the Grand Prix at DWB Eliteshow on Vilhelmsborg
Blue Hors Zepter and Cristian Tudela Ruiz
In a show class with strong rider names like Betina Jæger Jensen, national team member Daniel Bachmann Andersen and the two Olympic riders Carina Cassøe Krüth and Anna Kasprzak it became an exciting Grand Prix dressage class to follow at the national show in Vilhelmsborg’s courtyard.
The afternoon sun shined bright over the seven starting equipages and our own Cristian Tudela Ruiz and Blue Hors Zepter (Blue Hors Zack / Wolkentanz II, breeder: Bernhard Sieverding) started out as the class’ first pair, and laid out nicely with a score of 73.267%, which was brought along by several 8s for the passages and piaffes.
On the podium, the Zack-son and Cristian were followed by Olympic rider Anna Kasprzak on her Grand Prix horse Addict de Massa (San Amour / Maestro, breeder: M. Sylvain Massa). With 72.833%, this pair gave the audience an exciting class that positioned the second place just under 0.5% from the winner. Number three and just outside of the rankings was another Zack son to be found, namely; Heiline’s Zackton (Blue Hors Zack / Come Back II, breeder: Stald Heiline), who with his usual rider; Olympic rider Carina Cassøe Krüth, rode to a great score of 70.867% in friday’s Grand Prix.
