Anky: "I had a very special relationship with Cocktail. He came to my barn when he was five years old and I trained him up to Grand Prix. During his show carreer he got a heart problem and he had a rest period. When he made his rentree he won the international show at Indoor Brabant. That was really special for me. Cocktail was at his best when there was a lot of public. It looked like he counted the people first before his test!"

Results KWPN Performance Test:
Ermelo 1987
Balanced, eager, friendly, obedient and honest with good humor. He was still green at the start of the test. The first few weeks he was stiff through the back, this improved later on. During the second half of the test he was very fun to ride. He has much elasticity but likes to get behind the bit. The walk improved during the test and got to be regular and powerful. The trot is carried well and has much tact and regularity. The canter has moderate tact, the right lead is better than the left. He has acceptable jumping technique and sufficient scope but he is not careful. His cross-country gallop is more than sufficient and he jumps well. He is very willing to work, he likes to go and enjoys the work. He finds it easy. He has more than sufficient talent for jumping, rather much talent for cross-country and much talent for dressage. He was in good condition upon arrival but his hair coat was dry. At first he got more feed than normal and lost some weight but then filled out again.
He was calm in his stall. He was wearing a tail extension when he arrived.
