First Love Wins 2009 Swedish Warmblood Mare Performance Test
Wednesday, June 24, 2009
About 500 mares participated in the mare performance test and 39 made the cut to the National Mare Show, held last weekend in Stromsholm, Sweden. The show included a presentation under saddle in the morning, following by an in-hand presentation in the afternoon. Four mares were selected for another outdoor presentation under saddle in front of the Stromsholm castle.
First Love was presented under saddle by the Brazilian Adriana Zonari. The judges commented that the chestnut mare has "three very elastic and balanced gaits and an amazing rideability." The mare scored 88% in total.
