Sophie Christiansen (GBR) - "I was really, really pleased with how he (her horse) reacted in the arena because I didn't know he he'd react to a big atmosphere.  I'm very pleased with our score since we had a couple of blips and I know I can improve".
Frank Hosmar (NED0 - "I hoped to have a better test, but it was good for the first day.  The whole canter was good except for the last simple change".
Eleonore Elsone (CAN) - "I was happy with it (her test).  He (her horse) was relaxed and forward and gave me a medium canter on the 20-meter circle.  He wasn't spooky - he was on the job!".
