Top three Grand Prix freestyles at the European championships

I must have forgotten to hit “publish” after I wrote this post on August 21st! Although it’s not current these are still three great rides worth watching from the European Championships.

Adelinde Cornelissen wracked up her second gold of the event on her chestnut gelding Jerich Parzival despite having made an error in her test (she rode two-tempis in place of half-pass as the eighth movement and had to pull up and go back to get it right). It takes nerves of steel to maintain your concentration after going off course but shows that even the most experienced riders can lose track of their tests!

Carl Hester won the silver and many new admires on his stunning black stallion Uthopia (check out his extended trot!) and Patrik Kittel won the bronze on Watermill Scandic.
