Our performance in Grand Prix special was a bit more tense than in the Grand Prix. Actually a lot more. Already at the warm up he was on his toes and I don’t know why I was so alive today, but gosh he wasn’t easy today.
When entering the arena I could clearly feel that he was tense and too ready. Actually we started out rather well, but for me the passage tour gets a little too big and the canter tour too tense. We managed to get around without any mistakes, and still some nice pirouettes! I’m very happy that I managed to control him even though he was this hot in the arena! Scoring 72.8% is personal best in special and was enough for a 7th place among some of the best riders in the world! Couldn’t be happier!
After our ride Cassidy and I checked out our protocol together as you can see on the picture above!
