Spectacular shows

Anemone Horse Trucks Stallion Competition Dressage

At 18.20hrs the battle for the Anemone Horse Trucks Stallion Competiton Dressage erupts. There is only one certainty: Lowlands of Iron Spring Darm ridden by Dinja van Liere may step forward as the winner in the Z-class, as he is the only stallion that participated in all three selection competitions. The same rider holds multiple aces in the M-class and is currently in the lead aboard the willing, light-footed McLaren. He won both the competition of Kronenberg and Exloo, obtaining quite a few nines, and placed second in Ermelo behind the athletic, uphill Pavo Cup winner My Blue Hors Santiano. Ridden by Renate van Uytert-Van Vliet, this stallion is the runner-up in the current standings, the gap towards McLaren is over one point. The L-class has proved to be another hotly contested competition. Thanks to the victories in Kronenberg and Ermelo, the uphill and willing Dark Rousseau and Kim Alten are currently in the lead. Although the rise of the impressive Nalegro and Charlotte Fry is equally remarkable.
