Charlotte and Valegro in Aachen Kur win

Another inspirational ride from Charlotte Dujardin and Valegro to win the Kur at Aachen with an amazing score of 87.9%.  Only disappointment was that Totilas had to withdraw, after his wins in the Grand Prix and Grand Prix Special, so we missed out on seeing that ride.

If you haven’t caught up with the video of the winning ride from the Olympic Champs here it is.  For all you fans of Irish music you will enjoy this one….

Ride Well!

Totilas back at the top at Aachen

Have you been watching Aachen?  Amazing performances  and so good to see Totilas back in such form.

Matthias Rath and Totilas won the Grand Prix (82.30%) and Grand Prix Special (84.549%) at Aachen, beating both Charlotte Dujardin and Valegro,  and Helen Langehanenberg and Damon Hill.

Really enjoyed Isabel Werth and her new mare, Bella Rose.  They are going to be challenging again for sure.

It’s a shame Totilas is withdrawn from the Kur

Ride Well!

Stunning Performance from Charlotte Dujardin and Valegro – Freestyle Video European Dressage Championships

She got so close to Edward Gal’s world record of 92.3% but who’s worrying about that after an awesome ride by the olympic champions Charlotte Dujardin and Valegro.  They hardly put a foot wrong in their freestyle to the music they used in London last year.  The score of 91.25% says it all. Absolutely amazing performance for first place.  If you haven’t seen it yet – here it is:

Love this!

Ride Well!

And then there was Helen Langehanenberg and Damon Hill – Freestyle Euro Dressage Championships

There was so little between the top riders at Herning.  It is a joy to watch these performances.  Will keep going back to them for the inspiration and challenge.  Helen Langehanenberg and Damon Hill rode a brilliant test for their second place in the freestyle.

Ride Well!
