    I actually liked Bon Bravour the best..... very elastic mover and doesn't seem to be quite as "put together".

    The music on the Jack Sparrow video was awful! Can you say funeral music?

    Yes he is, I like him too.. he is the furthest on on his training though so we might see the same progress with the others given time.

    Apache earned a 10 for his trot. He is quite an uphill mover. Lovely horse.

    And here's a little treat with Jack Sparrow this time without the funeral music that YouTube so elegantly suggested for the last one

    I.P.S Bon Bravour was sadly enough a no show on the competition on Thursday.

    I really like Bon Bravour, but I think that might be because I like the way he is ridden better as well. He is uphill and has a lot of knee and hock action, but he remains swinging and elastic where some of the other horses seem very tight in the topline.

    I to like him. Absolutely a gorgeous horse who's been developing real well during the year and will be interesting to follow in the future

    I really admire Edward Gal and Hans-Peter Minderhoud for taking on very young horses and bringing them all the way through the grades to GP themselves. Very few other top international riders do this and I can't say I blame them, teaching young, incredibly athletic baby horses how to go, turn and stop is dangerous and not much fun. Respect!
