In addition to jumping with good rhythm and balance, he was considered to have a quick reaction time, comendable elasticity, and marvelous impulsion and scope. His positive temperament was highlighted by comments like, "cooperative, fearless, sensible and energetic."  Riders of Karmel van de Watering at the performance test described him as, "Super! Easy to ride, good take-off, feels like a lot of scope", and, " Very good rideability, good canter, a lot of scope, careful and quick from the ground. Very good sense for jumping. A horse for the future".
