Stadl-Paura: Della Second, Edi Fourth

While Blind Date won the Grand Prix qualifier for the Freestyle on Easter Monday in Stadl-Paura, her stable mate, Della Cavalleria OLD, rode in the Grand Prix Special tour – and finished second.

"Della“ made a great debut in her first international Grand Prix class. She presented herself from her best side, just like she did for her national victory in Magna Racino, finishing with 71.42 percent - right behind the experienced winning couple, UllrichEquine’s St. Emilion with Dorothee Schneider from Germany (73.22 percent).

After a longer pause from competitions, Eichendorff was also ridden in Stadl-Paura. He went really nicely and was highly motivated but the heat in the indoor made his energy sag a bit which probably explains his error at the end of the canter tour. "Edi" took fourth place behind third placed Lights of Londonderry with Bernadette Brune/GER. Quantico and Timna Zach finished seventh with 67.52 percent.
