Vierde Groep

Dec 9, 2021 | 0 comments

Well…the day started out with a bang; six horses selected out of the first group. Since only 12 out of 50 were selected total for the day, you can guess what happened in the next five groups. Glock’s Toto Jr was the big winner today. As far as the others,there were a lot of comments about incorrect fundament, not enough uphill tendency in the movement, not using the back. There were a few super horses not accepted that surprised me, and a couple that were accepted I didn’t expect. It’s enormously difficult to judge this from a screen, so I will defer to the jury’s decisions.
