"Super feeling today with the amazing Zack! Unfortunately we had a few, but very expensive misunderstandings, but still a third place and 73% Now we are looking forward for the special tomorrow"
Rider Nanna Skodborg Merrald, groom Ellen Glinvad Nielsen, breeding stallion Blue Hors Zack (Rousseau / Jazz) and Zack-son Blue Hors Znickers (Blue Hors Zack / De Niro) went on to new show adventures last week, where the team was ready already on Friday for Znickers to show in the CDI2 * Prix St. Georges and for Zack in the CDI3 * Grand Prix.
International show debut for 8 year old Blue Hors Znickers
In Friday's CDI2 * Prix St. Georges at 11.08 AM, it was time for the combination of Nanna Skodborg Merrald / Blue Hors Znickers to show! They did so with a score of 72.706% and an impressive place as number 2. The pair was only surpassed by the young, British talent Charlotte Fry, who on the horse Don Joe, rode into first place with a score of 74.647%
Nanna and Znickers repeated the success in Saturday's Intermediare I. With 70.618% they rode into yet another second place in the large field of competitors. This class was also won by Charlotte Fry and Don Joe, this time with 73.706%.
"8 y/o Blue Hors Znickers made his debut in the Prix St. George today (ed. as well as in Intermediare I on Saturday), and he was so nicely relaxed and "on" for the game, which I consider really important with such a young and inexperienced horse"
