“Enthralling contact with the bit, light-footed, light, willing,“ these were the praiseworthy words of the judges for the 7-year-old black Oldenburg gelding, owned by Elisabeth Max-Theurer and presented by Stefan Lehfellner. “Robert“, his amiable stable name at Achleiten Castle, received 8.2, the best mark of the day, for his trot. Overall score: 78.382 percent.

“He is my heartfelt horse,“ said Stefan Lehfellner who has been working with Roberto Carlos MT for 2 years. “It has not always been easy with him but he has endless potential. Today, he was incredibly easy to ride and very confident in the arena, although the Final Test had a really high difficulty. A few months from now, we will try the Small Tour.“

On 2nd place with a score of 74.833 percent (“active trot, safe walk, light-footed canter“): the Westphalian gelding Damon’s Classic, presented by Freestyle winner Belinda Weinbauer.
