Hermès elected Dressage Horse of the Year
After a beautiful Freestyle to Music of Dinja van Liere and Hermès, the approved stallion was honoured as Dressage Horse of the Year 2021. The Easy Game-son received this title, presented by Kalfsbeek BMW Mini, after his outstanding sport achievements in the year.
Hermès (out of Bukkie keur pref prest EPTM-dres by Flemmingh, bred by G. Gijsbers of Loosbroek) already caught the eye as a young horse with Dinja van Liere. In 2016 he won bronze at the Dressage World Breeding Championships for Young Horses and he led the Stallion Competition in Den Bosch. All expectations were met by Hermès when he made his Grand Prix debut at merely eight years of age. 2021 was an extremely successful year for Dinja and Hermès, with one of the highlights being the victory in the freestyle to music at the CHIO Aachen. The audience was equally impressed by this magnificent combination, and it elected Hermès Dressage Horse of the Year 2021, powered by Kalfsbeek.
