I thought it went really well,”

said Trunnell of her test with the seven-year-old Hanoverian gelding by Danone I owned by Kate Shoemaker.

We’ve been working on getting him stretching more. I thought the stretch was good. We want him more framed up, more in a compact position with his head, not so out in front and loose.”
