Nanna and Don Olymbrio in ABSOLUTE superb form
The small, talented and powerful breeding stallion is many people’s favorite – and with a ride like the one we saw this evening, you can understand why!
Nanna ogandDon O in huge and beautiful tempi changes
In a star-studded field that counted top riders such as Anna Zibrandtsen on Detroit, Carl Hedin on Van Der Veen, Olympic reserves Charlotte Heering and Bufranco, Nadja Aabo Sloth on Favor Gersdrof and many more!
With that, Blue Hors riders Nanna Skodbord Merrald and Cristian Tudela Ruiz had plenty of competition for the number 1 position of the International Grand Prix as they entered the evening, riding Blue Hors Don Olymbrio and Blue Hors Zick Flower.
Don Olymbrio at the top
With the son, Gammelgaards O’Connor, starting in the national Grand Prix with breeder Carsten Gammelgaard in the saddle, the warm-up to see the sire stallion behind many talented offspring had already been laid.
And what an achievement! And what a victory!
Blue Hors Don Olymbrio and Nanna Skodborg Merrald excelled with big tempi changes, beautiful pirouettes and a piaffe/passage work in absolute top of its’ class! A unanimous pair of judges placed the equipage first in class with a percentage score of a whopping 74.261%
Cristian and Zick Flower also made a fine appearance
Cristian Tudela Ruiz and Blue Hors Zick Flower (by Blue Hors Zack/Blue Hors Romanov) were ready to start at 21:07, where they rode a great program, where especially the canter pirouettes were among their highlights!
The couple achieved a great 65.869% for today’s ride in the Grand Prix
