A sold out Brabanthallen witnessed some phenomenal talents in Anemone Horsetrucks Stallion Competition Dressage on Friday night. The stallion competition, for stallions turning 5, 6 and 7 this year, was won by respectively Jameson RS2, Imposantos and Hermès. 


Imposantos lives up to high expectations 

The one to watch this final was Imposantos (Wynton out of Zarina elite IBOP-dres PROK by Krack C, bred by Willy Wijnen of Berlicum). The impressive stallion, ridden by Bart Veeze, closed the deal through an impeccable score of 94 points. Judge Mariette Sanders- van Gansewinkel: “Everything went well today, what we see here is a horse with an incredible future ahead.”   

The well-modeled Indian Rock (Apache out of Crisjena keur pref IBOP-dres by Vivaldi, bred by J. de Bruin of Schelluinen) and Emmelie Scholtens scored 89 points. The canter was the absolute highlight: “In the canter Indian Rock shows lots of expression, self-carriage and light-footedness.”
85 points in the final secured a third overall position for In Style (Eye Catcher out of Sissy by Lorentin I, bred by Joop van Uytert of Heerewaarden). The sympathetic stallion again stood out in rideability, being presented by Esmee Donkers who replaced the pregnant Renate van Uytert. Joyce Lenaerts steered Iconic B (Bon Bravour out of Niniek STV keur pref prest sport-dres by Jazz, bred by Stal de Beukenvallei of Leende) to 86 points in the final and a fourth place in the competition. The highest mark was awarded to his walk.
