Older harness stallions steal the show
In the program of the first-round viewing of the harness stallions there was also time for the already approved stallions. The older stallions kicked the afternoon off. Each and every one of them put on a show; if spectators had been allowed, the crowd had surely gone wild! Fortunately, the livestream was open to viewers from all over the world, ensuring some great promotion of the harness horse.
The first group of stallions entered the arena in hand. Innovatief, Kane BFT and Jesse James gave quite the performance. The stallion owners and trainers presented them in tiptop shape. Macho, guided by Robbie van Dijk, showed – and that’s the fitting word for it – his qualities in harness.
In the second group, Bocellies Matteo with André Veltkamp, Lanto HBC and Harry van Middelaar and Maximiano I&S with Lubbert van Oene entered the ring in harness. These stallions all performed at high level, too. And it was time Idol, the grey stallion that has turned completely white by now. He put on a spectacular show in hand.
