Justice HL, Ipsthar and Haynes Gh win the Blom stallion competition
Prior to the finals of today, four stallions did not make any mistakes in the Blom Stallion Competition L class. With another double clear, Caroline Müller took the win with the Harley VDL-son Justice HL (out of Noblesse Oblige elite pref prest by Epilot, breeder Corry Dolstra) registered with Stal Horn and Henk Luijerink.
In second and third place, we saw two stallions that made their first mistake in the entire competition at exactly the same fence. Ridden by Steven Veldhuis Je Suis Equus Tame (Qlassic Bois Margot out of Tame Tame by Quaprice Z, breeder: SNC Brohier) came in second, followed by the well jumping Jubel ES (Harley VDL out of Maxime O keur pref prest by Lauriston, b/reg.p Egbert Schep) ridden by Bart Lips.
Nothing too crazy
The expectations were sky-high and today it had to happen: Ipsthar (by Denzel van 't Meulenhof) had to convert his lead in the provisional standings in the M Class into a new competition win with Bas Moerings. And it worked!
"He is so clever! My father gave me the assignment to do not too much, so I did not take the shortest route in the jump-off. But Ipsthar has such a big canter that we still could set the second fastest time ", says Bas Moerings with a big smile.
Competition win for Haynes GH
After a beautfiul clear in the first round, in the jump-off not all went well for Haynes GH (s.Carambole) and Steven Veldhuis. But their lead in the provisional standings of the competition was enough to keep the lead and win the Z Class.
Because of the win in the day competition, the scopey jumper High Shutterfly (Sir Shutterfly from Cerasinaa elite EPTM-spr PROK by Chin Chin, breeder G.J. Kappert) ridden by Lennard de Boer went to second place, just in front of Herakles (Catoki out of La Costa by Landor S, breeder A. Brueggehagen) ridden by Kimberley Winsingh.
Gullit HBC wins VHO Trophy
Only six stallions were on the starting order of the VHO Trophy, but they were not the least. And that also applied to their riders. As the fourth rider in the jump-off, Monique van der Broek decided to go for it. In full throttle she rode the fast Cantos-son through the course. He remained alert and worked with her all along. For a moment it seemed to go wrong on the second last obstacle when Monique hit the flag on the wing of the fence with her foot and the pole moved dangerously. But everything stayed up and with her time of 35.88 she was over a second faster than Willem Greve with the super cantering Grandorado TN. Florian (s.Zirocco Blue VDL) got third.
