Achleiten: Blind Date First, Eichendorff Second

Very high temperatures at our 4-star CDI at Schloss Achleiten - and Blind Date and Eichendorff were again in great form.

Biedermeier/Wibke Bruns

Blind Date won the Grand Prix qualifier for the Special on Sunday with 73.92 percent - pushing the US team member  Allison M. Brock on Rosevelt back to second place. Third place went to the Austrian rider Astrid Neumayer, ahead of Wibke Bruns/GER, who placed fourth with our Biedermeier.

I made a mistake while riding "Beate" but she forgave me and quickly concentrated on her job again so that we also had many exceptionally good moments. By the way, this was Blind Date's 15th Grand Prix victory in a row.

In the Grand Prix of the Freestyle tour, my 17-year old Eichendorff with his 73.56 Prozent was only bettered by Steffen Peter's hopeful youngster, the eight-year old  Rosamunde who received 74.56 percent. Third place went ot the Swiss rider Marcela Krinke Susmelj and her Smeyers Molberg (71.74 percent).
