And today we’re going to try a bit harder!!
Lance warmed up great for the Grand Prix test but going from outdoor arena to indoor competition arena just unsettled him enough that he backed off the impulsion too much to really make this complex test work well. Lindsey rode very well, so very, very well. Lance tried really hard and did his best but not enough impulsion is not a good enough answer to the difficult GP questions Lindsey was asking! But thank you Lance for trying!
At the end of the day, we watched Steffen and Legolas write the book on how to ride a Grand Prix test!!! Masterful!! He pulled out all the stops and risked it!! 77%!!! Congrats Steffen!!
Today we’ll address the concept of “no backing off at all Lance!” in the warm up ring and see if he can take that concept to the competition ring. Grand Prix Special at 9:50 (PST), live streaming at California Dreaming Productions (same as yesterday).
As today is our last day of competition here, we’ll pack everything up this afternoon and head back to Arroyo.
Off to start packing…
