The pair performed a demonstration in front of about 3000 spectators at the Shockemohle stallion show in Vechta, Germany, on Sunday.

It was the first time the horse has been seen in public since Paul Shockemohle bought the triple World Equestrian Games gold medalist late last year.

Rath and Totilas will also perform at the show on February 13, and the combination is expected to compete for the first time in May.
