OG Tokyo: Houtzager and Van der Vleuten to final
Maikel van der Vleuten upholded the Dutch honour with his Bustique-offspring Beauville Z and qualified for the individual final, just like Marc Houtzager and Dante.
A quick clear round ensured Maikel van der Vleuten a place in the final with his top horse Beauville Z, that comes out of the first crop of top progenitor Bustique. By now, Marc Houtzager and his Sterrehof’s Dante N.O.P. (Canturano out of Zidante ster IBOP-spr sport-dr D-OC by Phin Phin, bred by J.W.J. Soeter in Stokkum) also secured a spot in the final, that invites the best 30 combinations to come back. Among them two orange jackets and the number of KWPN-horses is still to be determined when the competition is complete finished.
More information about the KWPN-horses at the Olympic Games can be found on this overview page.
