My Freestyle was perfect. Glock’s Flirt is a super horse who really tries his best for me.” After the World Cup Final (25-28 March) Glock’s Flirt will have a rest. I will ride Glock’s Johnson N.O.P. during the outdoor season and after Flirt’s break I will take him to the selection competitions too. “.
