Just now, Marlies van Baalen has completed her test on the second day of dressage at the Olympic Games. In the saddle of Go Legend she started a bit cautious. As the test progressed, the performance got better, and the pair formed a harmonious ensemble.

The son of Totilas constantly pointed his ears forward. Unfortunately, a big mistake in the tempi changes cost them a lot of points, as did the extra step backwards.

In the end, the scoreboard displayed a total of 71.615. Enough for a place in the final with the team. 
Marlies has competed at the Olympic Games before. In 2004 she represented the Netherlands with Idocus in Athens. Go Legend is bred by Wittenberg stables out of Litchy (elite preferent prestatie sport-dr s.Ferro). Litchy is also the dam of the KWPN-approved stallions Zizi Top and Painted Black, the latter participated in the 2012 London Olympics with Morgan Barbançon Mestre. Two offspring at the Olympic Games remains special!
