Just another fine performance by Weltliebe and Nanna Merrald in todays Grand Prix Freestyle at Odense CDI***** 72,25% and second place!. Quite a result since this is Weltliebes first time Grand Prix Freestyle ever! In the packed arena Nanna rode with much more relaxation than in yesterdays U25 Grand Prix and Weltliebe proved his class and did not have any mistakes. This showes us that with more experience and a Kür programme with a higher degree of technical difficulty the scores can be even higher. But a wise decision to choose a freestyle programme with beautiful music and suitable technical difficulty for todays challenge. Well done Team Merrald.

Weltliebe and Nanna Merrald took the number one spot and the victory in Sundays Intermediate I Class with 69% at Frederiksværk’s National Level Dressage Tournament. The very competent judges panel including Jesper Holst Hansen, Niels-Erik Bøchman and Leif Törnblad ensured that points were sharp. Nanna has not competed Weltliebe in a long time, as it is her sisters Sandra Merrald’s horse. But todays round did revel the potential of Weltliebe being well above 70%, as a couple of expensive mistakes; a misunderstanding before one of the pirouettes and mistake in the tempis’ meant serious deduction in the score. But as Nanna afterwards said: “I am quite satisfied with the result especially as I have only taken over riding Weltliebe after returning back from the Reem Acra FEI World Cup Finals in Lyon 2 weeks ago”. We congratulate Team Merrald with Weltliebes victory today, and congratulate Lene Hoberg on DiCaprio, 2nd and Thomas Dolleris Larsen on Don Alfredo, for 3rd place.
