Canton is the trainer at Collecting Gaits Farm and gave much credit to farm owners Jeff and Shereen Fuqua for their support. “I’ve work for Collecting Gaits since January and they’re fantastic people to work for and to ride for. They were very instrumental in getting me here. They sponsored me to go to Germany last May for six weeks showing and training with Susana Meisner. They’re just wonderful.”
The judges certainly liked the horse. Speaking for the judges’ panel, Marianne Ludwig said, “As I heard Hilda say yesterday, you are a lucky man. Super impressive horse.
Judges said the canter “was super to watch” although it lost a bit of collection when Grandioso got away from Canton.
Still, the canter scored an 8.4. Other scores were an 8.3 for submission and an 8.4 for general impression. Grandioso’s final score was 8.368. Canton said future plans are to compete Grandioso at the USEF levels while he strengthens and then move him into the Developing Horse competition.
