Danish demonstration of power in ECCO Five Star Dressage

Cathrine Laudrup-Dufour and Mount St John Freestyle

It was the Danish gold team from the ECCO FEI World Championships in Herning 2022, which sat in the top four positions in ECCO Five Star Dressage at the Danish Warmblood Stallion Show in Herning in an ecstatic and absolutely fantastic atmosphere in the Boxen.  

Nordentoft Grand Prix, is the first of two classes in ECCO Five Star Dressage at the Danish Warmblood Stallion Show in Herning. Denmark’s best dressage riders, and thus the riders who are in the running for a place on the Olympic team in Paris this summer, met in the Grand Prix today. The audience created a fantastic atmosphere throughout the class, and the riders afterwards expressed great gratitude and awe at the support from the Danish audience.

– For me it was just fantastic to ride through that curtain going into Boxen again, said today’s winner Cathrine Laudrup-Dufour, who secured the victory with 80.413% on Mount st. John Freestyle by Fidermark. – Herning and Boxen are absolutely very special, and it gives me goose bumps just thinking about riding in through that curtain, she continued.

– “Free” was ready to “go for it” today. It’s been a while since she’s been in such an atmosphere, but it seemed like she thoroughly enjoyed it. My plan was not to push over the limit, but to show soft and beautiful riding, and I felt she gave me everything I needed to do exactly that. I made a little mistake in the last pirouette, but it’s also a new partnership. I feel she enjoys performing as much as I enjoy doing it with her. I don’t think I could have asked for more today. And then it’s really special to stand on the podium together with my colleagues, Cathrine said.
