I think that’s a wonderful attribute that she has that the wind doesn’t affect her.

“I think the highlight was the passage, which she does really well anyway," said Blitz. "The rhythm was really good in it. Her trot half passes are always lovely, and her canter zig zags I got more distance from the centerline this time, Her work ethic, her scope, and her elasticity and freedom of gaits is amazing.”

Blitz is looking forward to her freestyle ride on Friday night.

“I love how the music matches her," said Blitz. "When you hear the music and see the horse, they match so well. I think it’s really moving. I’m really looking forward to the piaffe-pirouettes and just riding to the music, which not only do I love but it just matches her so well.”

In the FEI Prix St. Georges CDI3*, Betsy Steiner on Swiss W were the only pair to break 70.000 percent, riding to a score of 71.559 percent to win the class.
