Oranje power! Edward Gal and GLOCK's Voice lead a Dutch victory hat-trick in the CDI4*
A mixture of deep concentration alongside an uncanny calmness emanated from GLOCK's Voice today in the CDI4* Grand Prix de Dressage, which served as qualification for the musical freestyle on Sunday (31/05). GLOCK Rider Edward Gal presented the 13-year-old black stallion, progeny of De Niro x Rohdiamant, in a simply outstanding manner at his ‘second home’. "GLOCK's Voice approached the starting line in the GLOCK HORSE PERFORMANCE CENTER in Treffen for the first time today. He had a good look around beforehand and demonstrated very good concentration during the test. 'Voici' felt super and you sense that the horses feel just as comfortable here as we riders do. Gaston and Kathrin Glock manage to create something wonderful every time anew; each time it just gets more beautiful!", said the delighted GLOCK Rider at the winner’s interview.
Scores of up to 77.100 % were awarded by the panel of judges today for the incredibly harmonious performance by Edward and GLOCK's Voice, the overall score of 75.880 % being more than enough for victory. With a score of 69.680 %, second-placed Katja Gevers (NED) and her 15-year-old Thriller, son of Gribaldi, was about six percent behind, whilst Danielle von Mierlo (NED) with Ucento completed the Dutch podium line-up with a score of 68.080 %.
The sole Austrian lady in the competition, Amanda Hartung (T), rode Wolkenritter to eleventh place (63.320 %).
