Quotes: Adelinde Cornelissen (NED) - “Next we will do Aachen and then the Dutch Championships before the WEG”. Danielle Heijkoop (NED) - ““I only scored higher (in Grand Prix) once before, at Dortumund in March. This time the score was a little lower but I had a very good feeling. He (Kingsley Siro) was good in front and in his neck and he did good work in piaffe and passage but the pirouette was a bit too small so we were a little unbalanced. That could have been better.”
