For Real winner of Danish 35-days stallion performance test.
For Real did everything right in his first season under the saddle of his trainer Leonie Richter. “This stallion left nothing to be desired in terms of riding qualities, especially since a high elasticity and the good basic gait quality were evident at all times. A typey, very well constructed riding horse with charisma,” the judges commented, awarding the maximum score of 10 for the excellent cooperation of the stallion, who responded immediately to the rider’s aids at all times with mouth satisfaction. The impeccable conformation was rated with 9.5, the energy and elasticity in trot and canter with 9.0, and the tactfulness in walk with 8.5. With a total score of 9.2, For Real was clearly ahead of the competition – just as he was afterwards at his stallion performance test in Denmark.
