Segantini and Blue Hors Florent
The Hanoverian bred Segantini (by Secret x Fidermark) scored a total of 9.50 points with 9.75 for dressage and 9.02 for show jumping. For his character he got 9.5, for willingness to perform a 10, for his walk 8.5 and for trot and canter 9. He further scored 9.5 for rideability and 7 for body use over the jump.
