Jakari II has his ticket to the Dutch Championship
After the injury time that Linda has had because of her broken ankle,
she and Jakari II are already quite successful. It began, of course, in Poland,
where beautiful results were obtained. After that there were the selection
competitions for the Dutch Championships. In the first show in Harich, they
became second. After that they went to Emmeloord and despite that it is not a
imposing arena, Jakari had some tension, so they had a few mistakes and had to
accept an eighth place. The last show in Raalte they won, so the place for the
NK is sure. Twenty participants will participate in the national championships
which will be held at the KNHS centre in Ermelo on 2 and 3 March. After that
Linda and Jakari will progress to the intermediaire II and Big Tour.
First International Show in Poland went wonderfull
In the week of 23 oktober we went to the World Cup Show in Polen. The long
trip went well and when we came at the show grounds we were lovely welcomed. The
place was very nice and the boxes really big. Jakari II had to kick off on
thursday in the Prix st. Georges. With some miner errors we got third place with
a score over 69%
The second day Tosca ride her Grand Prix for the World Cup. She rore a great
test and with almost 70% she also got a third place. My inter I did not go well.
After riding the price giving ceremoni the day before, Jakari was tensed, I even
made a mistake in the test so we were just 7th place with olmost 67%.
Tosca had to ride her freestyle on sunday befor me and she did a wonderfull
job. With over than 75% she got 4th place! After her beautifull ride \i was
inspired to give my all. That went very well, we wonn the test with almost
Thank to all the good help from all our people aroud us we could have ride
this show so well.
Nasty accident for Linda
At may 16th Linda fell off one of her young horses. While she was lying on
the ground, the horse jumpt on her. She broke her ankle on several places.
After surgery and actually a good recovery she got an infection. After
another two and a half weeks in the hospital with two operations and many
antibiotics she went home to recover. At this moment she is working again with
her horses and pupills, but only for a few hours a day.
Good show for Effect and Jakari II
In the weekend of May 13 we went with three horses to North Sleen. It
was a nicely organised show. Related to the predicted storm we were allowed to
adjust our times. Jakari took the lead and he did with a great test. We were
rewarded with just over 70% and we got first place. Then it was Effect's
turn. She was still something on the fresh side in the test, but got just over
60% still a second place. Unfortunately Adventure did a lesser test. The score
got stuck at almost 59%. Still, it was a pretty successful day and we did'nt
have a speck of rain.
Incredible did an incredible job
Saturday 5 may we went with two of our own breed young horses for the
Subli Cup selection in Exloo. It was a nice organized competition, the floors
were good and there was a lot decoration done. Our four-year-old James Bond LVD
(v.Jazz x v.m Negro) was the first to kick off. Because James is normally pretty
brave, it surprised me that in Exloo he was so tense to the environment. I could
not ride along the flaggs so I decided to decline the grades and just try to get
some trust back from James. We will take this handsome guy more often from home
to gain more experience. As second horse I rode our chestnut gelding Incredible
in the 5 year old Subli arena. Incredible is a young Charmeur x Negro. He was
only the second time from home, and despite the fact that he also was a bit
tense, he behaved impeccably. In the exercises that at the five year old have to
perform, Incredible is still youthful so that score cold be more in the future.
For his gait, he got excellent scores including an 8 for his walk a 9 for his
trot and no less than a 9,2 for his canter. Of course, we are super happy to
have such fine young talents in the stable.
Very well second international for Rocky LVD
In the first days of March Linda traveled with Rocky
LVD to the Belgian town of Lier to appear in the arena for Prix
st George international test and Inter I freestyle. The preparation went great and in the week before,

official test they ride on the show ground and Rocky LVD went very
well. On Thursday the prix st. Georges test started. Linda felt it went
well, though they had a bit tension in the pirouettes. Unfortunately Rocky LVD had left a leg
in the walking pirouettes and lost points in four parts of the test.
combination achieved 68% and were selected to ride the Freestyle the next
day.Rocky LVD felt top again on friday and the freestyle went well.

result in their second international competition. The coming internationals

At this moment Schatsmann is competing in the Grand Prix. We are still very
new in this class but it already looks promising.
Look at the video and see for yourself.
Nice Show by Chantal and Linda
On Sunday 20 september, Chantal Abbass-Wali and Linda rode a nice clinic with
their stallions. Chantal rides at a high level Western and she lives in
Haaksbergen. They had only one day to put the Freestyle together but
they had a good time doing so. The beautifully fitting music was put
together by Janna Rosie. So they started the Freestyle on Sunday with
beautiful and sunny weather. Midway through the Freestyle the lady's
surprised the public by exchange of horse. This resulted in
hilarious moments. at the end of the Freestyle the lady's took over their own
horses and they told about their own branch of sport and what were the
differences and similarities. The show was received with thunderous

Outdoor Gelderland was a big succes for Linda and Rocky LVD
Saturday 7 June was the
big day, Linda along with her Stallion Rocky LVD were going to ride a freestyle
on the beautiful grounds of Papendal in the city of Arnhem. It was very hot and
Linda decided not to warm up Rocky too much. That was the good thing to do,
without any mistakes they put together a beautiful freestyle on the lovely music
made by Anne Boogman. The score was the winning score 73.583%, up more than 5%
from the number two.The price Linda with her horse Rocky LVD won was nothing
less than a saddle of Equipe. This is an Italian saddle brand which is already
famous in jumping and for dressage Charlotte Dujardin is riding one of them. Pia
Alaviitala reached the sattle out followed by a beautiful lap of honor in which
Rocky LVD showed itself at its best. See here the link.
Boeve's K3 Noir sold.
One of Linda's best
horses left the stables and will provide with his new owner a rewarding career
in the junior categories .
The former Trakehner stallion
approved Boeve's K3 Noir was male in the class Prix St. Georges and Inter I. He
was owned by Stal Veldhoek ( Boeve outfitting business ) and joined Linda at the
end of his 5th year. He was a very playful young stallion. The first game was an instant success.
With a fat score of above
80%, he won a first place during a five year old dressage horses heading.
On his sixth year Linda has launched him into the Z1. After
a great season Z1 they have made the transition to the Z2.
His first race he won
immediately. After two games he had ridden in the Z2 they
"ZZ-licht". Also this went so well that they have had very
quickly the points for "ZZ-Zwaar". The first game in the "ZZ-Zwaar" went very
quickly and they were in this class at the Dutch Championships. Because K3
Noir had quite some trouble with his hormones he was distracted during the test,
so they returned home without placement. Then they ride Prix
St. Georges and also this class, K3 noir was a very striking horse.
The black stallion temperamental surprised every time. He has very high
placements in the Prix St. Georges and Inter both wrote nationally and
internationally to his name. Because off the
reason that he probably would go to another owner once it has been decided to
castrate him. This worked out
well. He has his pride and flair retained but is now
far less distracted .

a bit disappointing especially at one judge but we did qualify for the final as

went flawlessly and we came up with just over 70% on a first place.
Finally I came to start with my big boy Schatzmann. We startet in the Prix st
Georges. The trot part went very fine. I have been noticing some tension in the
walk but I was very pleased with the Canter, in which he was waiting more now
and I could prepare the beautiful pirouettes. We had over 64% and got seceond
Well a very successful competition.
Rocky District Champion
The Overijsselse or also called Region Championships were held this year in

finalists were allowed to start the next day. There was a lot of score
difference because one of the judges scored quite low and the other judge quit
high. Eventually we were allowed to put large ribbon around Rocky's neck and we
were honoured as Champion.
Boeve's K3 Noir did well again
Sunday 11 August, a show was held in Veendam. I sattled for this show Boeve's
K3 Noir. It was a small-scale and relaxed contest, I had enough possibility to
concentrate. Boeve's K3 went a fine test. The floor was very heavy in some
places which I could notice. We won the first place with almost 67%.
Last Monday 29 July we drove to Enland to take part in an international
competition in Hickstead. The horses went well during the training, though I
could feel a little tiredness of Schatzman. He had already did some great
competitions before. On Thursday I had to start early with Boeve's K3 noir. He
did a fine test with a few minor imperfections. He scored just over 66%. Then it
was Shatzmann's turn. After the first part of the test we had more than 72%,
unfortunately he got some thick errors in the Canter therefor we dropped to 64%.
The next day I had to start in very bad weather with Schatzmann. But our trot
tour was super again. Unfortunatly we had lardge mistakes in the canter. That
was in contrast to K3 Noir, he was getting better every test and scored just
over 67%. Of the 40 starters we were 17th and we were allowed to move on to the
Kur. We rode the Kur which was actually figured out for Schatzmann, but we did a
wonderfull job! No mistakes and very safe through it. With a score of 68,50% we
went in the right direction. We were eventually 10th place. We had a wunderfull

very tense so the exercises didn't all go very well. Eventually we had a rate of 62.982%
For Schatzmann this was his debut in the Prix St Georges.
He had very fine pieces in the test and showed very good exercises. Unfortunately, he found the jury boxes were very scary, so in the area of near the jury boxes some big mistakes arose. With Schatzmann I had a rate of 62.193%, with
a few low points because of the failures but also many eights. I really enjoyed
my test and this horse will promise much for the

difference between the two judges. Therefor the score
of 62.89% was a bit

the class Z1 with Rocky
LVD and in the

somewhat distracted by the horses that were stabled in
the competition hall. Because of this I could not fully keep his attention and there arose some errors, which

of 67.25% we knew to
put the freestyle on our

Fine test during Twente Cup in Denekamp
During the second show of the Twente Cup in
Denekamp we became third
with 66%. Schatzmann was very nice to ride, here
and there we made a mistake but he is
getting better together and
therefore we can perform the exercises better.
A few days later we were allowed to ride during the
competition of the
Shining Star Stables at Indoor Twente. Schatzmann was impressed by the
entourage. Because of the tension I couldn't ride Schatzmann together enough, so because of that the image was probably a bit
restless and the judges
couldn't give high scores. Nevertheless it was a great experience and we can use
this back in our training to improve.
Succesful starts for Jay
Last two weeks Jay, one of the taiwanese riders that is trained by us, came
to the Netherlands to start at two Dutch competitions. At October 21 he came to
start with the horse Never Ending Dream at the show jumping competition in
Marienheem. For Jay it was the first time he compete in an indoor competition in
the Netherlands. In the first round he had no fautls and unfortunatly he had one
off in the jump off which led him to the 8th prize.
On October 28 we drove with Jay and Never Ending Dream to the show jumping
competition in Raalte. There he came to start in de class Z and ZZ. In the class
Z he had one down bit he rode a very nice round. And for the first time of his
life he started in the class ZZ, he had a number of faults in this round but his
confidence is growing.

12 October in Wierden
the first match of the Twente Cup for us started. I rode
in the Twente Cup with 2 horses. Schatzmann
in the ZZ-light
and Sir Sinatra in the Z1.
Schatzmann was very nice during the
warming up, but in the ring he got lost and we got big mistakes so we could not score.
Sir Sinatra was a very
fine to ride. He rode a test for his second time
and already he felt very easily to ride
and very sympathetic
. In a very large Z1 group with some very good combinations, we were
able to achieve a 5th
place with 210
points. I am very
satisfied with the outcome of this stallion.

had to start at 9.15 am. I rode another nice test and was slightly disappointed about my score of 62.84%, but it
turned out that the jury had given reasonably low points . We ended up in
7th place which we
had selected for the finals. The best 8 competitors in the finals had a ride a Freestyle and the points of the
test that morning counted with
the freestyle in the final result. I was exited to ride
the Freestyle and Schatz felt
good in the warming
up. The trot part went well and he
stayed nice constant
but once in the canter we got some tention errors. The goal was to get a
higher placement result
in Freestyle, but
after that disappointment was
over, I must say that I am very pleased with our performance and enjoyed this beautiful game.
Boeve's K3 very well in Almelo
On 2 September I went to Almelo with the gelding Boeve's K3 Noir. We started in the Prix st. Georges and Intermediate I. Boeve's K3 Noir performed well in the Prix st. Georges where he was a nice score of exactly 65%, and we were placed6th. In the Inter I we went a step further and we got 66.58% and second
Schatzmann District Champion!
The weekend 17
and 18 August we were in Ambt
Delden for the Regional
Championships. This was an ideal place for us as it was not more than fifteen minutes away from our
stable. I started with Schatzmann in Z2. On Friday, he did a very fine test and we won it
with force majeure on
average 227 points. On Saturday, he also did a very fine test in which a few flaws appeared, but with an average of 217 we stood in
a tie for first place. It was so
exciting in the decisive freestyle. He was nice to ride with the warming up, but went in the freestyle not as I was used from him. Later it
turned out that he had lost an
before entering the
ring . I noticed this especially in the trot section. Luckily we took part in the canter again and thanks to the fine score on my music and choreorafie we could still receve the champion ribbon .
Pupils Top Results
On the Regional Championships, my
pupils themselves showed from their best side. So
Inge Meijer on Friday to a 2nd
place in the Z1. Unfortunately she had on Saturday too many errors and could not go trhough to the last
test. Susan Stegehuis won on Friday with majeure in her class in M1
and in the same group
was Ashley Langevoort
2nd. Also Mariska Meenhuis rode in her first
trial M1 with large
distance in front which also Marjolein Rattink as 4th placed for the finals on
Saturday. I have supported the ladies during their finals on Saturday and it came Mariska Meenhuis as the winner and
Marjolein Rattink as
second! I enjoyed all 4 combinations because it was a very good running
Again super scores for Schatzmann
August 8th we went riding at the Snorrewind Riding Centre, it was a
nice organizedevening competition. Schatzmann starts getting in better shape. The warming up area was nicely sized and quiet so I could
prepare a nice way
on the 1st
244 points and almost
72% we won the trial. The second test was neat and we put on the winning streak with 235 points. This was a good preparation for the championships Overijssel.
Rocky LVD third in the Subli Cup Zevenaar
Friday, August 3
I have rode Rocky LVD
in the Subli Cup
in Zevemaar. Unfortunately, our preparation was not too good so Rocky LVD wasn't fine warmed up before the test. Therefor Rocky LVD was very
excited in the test and
so we made a few faults. Also Rocky LVD responded on the unrest that there was going on
next the ring. So
all in all everything went not very pleasant.
Eventually we won a third
price with 70.2%.
In the standings,
we're on the 2nd
Schatzmann District Champion Z2
During the outdoor District Championships in
Lattrop I became with Schatzmann outdoor District Champion in the class Z2. Schatzmann went very well and with 227 and 224
points we could receive
the Championship sash. We are going
to prepare for the Overijssel
Championships that will take place on 17 and 18
Schatzmann gets top marks in the dressage Amarantevenings
We started on the dressage Amarantevenings in Haaksbergen and there I knew
again the 1st prize with Schatzmann in the class Z2. With 237 points, we remained just below 70%. Schatzmann there was fine and he is
becoming stronger and it's
easier to let hem carry himself in the test.
After the usual test,
we also have a Freestyle. In the freestyle Schatzmann was also very fine. Unfortunately, we took the wrong music CD with us. Recently we had
the finale of the freestyle changed, unfortunately we had brought along
the old freestyle so unexpectedly I had to improvise the last
piece of the
has cost me some points so we eventually ended up on 3rd place.
Schatzmann at start on the Amarant Dressage Evenings and the District Championship in Lattrop
With Schatzmann we will start Thursday, July 26
in Haaksbergen during
the Amarant Dressage
going to ride a Z2 test and in addition we will also ride our freestyle.

Lattrop District Championship and we will do a throw to
the District Championship
and a placement for the Region Championships.
Rocky LVD on top in the standings to the Subli Cup
During the selection
round of the Subli
Cup in Exloo I knew to get a
with Rocky with a score of
74.6%. Despite that the previous week Rocky was not really fully fit and seemed to suffer from the cover of the weather, we knew to put down a very fine test. Unfortunately, I gave some points away because the
lines in the test weren't the way they wanted to see them.
At home were
going to work hard on improvement of the test and try to remain our head
position in the standings of the Subli Cup.
Great interest in training from Taiwan
This last couple of weeks we have many
visitors from Taiwan at our
stable. First Jay came to The Netherlands to compete in Rijssen. Jay has done a
very good job and went home with a placement in the L. Jay had also taken
a groom with him, she stayed another week at our stable to
gain more experience. At the moment there
are two training clients
from Taiwan, one of them will stay here for several weeks.
We are very pleased with this interest in Taiwan, the people are very eager to learn
and are passionate to get the
equestrian sports in
Taiwan to a higher level.
Water ballet in Kootwijk
Last Sunday, July 8th, we took 3
horses to the beautiful areas of Kootwijk. First I
came to start with Schatzman. Unfortunately it was raining when I drove my test and I was a
little afraid it would
be too slippery for
my big Schatzmann. Fortunately, the area was still good to drive and we got
224 and 233 which was good for second place
twice. With a
different outfit we went with Rocky for the Sublicup 5 year old dressage horses. Rocky drove a super test and achieved 80.4% and a first
place. Unfortunately back in the rain and other clothes on we had to ride once
again this time with Boeve's K3 Noir in the Prix
St. Georges. It
remained dry and K3
showed a very fine flawless test. The score of 62.70% was not enough for a placement but I was very happy with the test and I could ride with
him. As the last of my driving tests
we had to ride the Inter I. I started the test with K3 but unfortunately we got when a cloudburst. The wind was brisk and with buckets the water came down so I decided to greet off. Despite
my wet suits we had a
fine day we went happy housewards.
Watch the nice compilation of the show in Taiwan

Good performance during the Brabantse Ruiterdagen
Last weekend I started with Schatzmann at the Hoefslag Dressage Trophy in Oudenbosch. The Hoefslag Dressage Trophy is a Freestyle competition held
between the 20 best combinations in the class Z2 of the
Netherlands. The first Freestyle I had a
superfine ride with Schatzmann. We were placed 3 with 70.25%, unfortunately I had some difference between the two
judges namely 68.5% and 72%. The first three riders should come back in the main ring to ride the freestule again for the same jurors. All three starters were very good combinations, the points were very close together. I found it
very cool to drive with Schatzmann
in the main ring . Schatzmann was more spectacular in the main ring, but
unfortunately this also arose in a few flaws.
Eventually we finished third with 68.1%.
Boeve's K3 Noir back in the sport after his castration
Last weekend I competed for the first time after his castration with Boeve's K3 Noir in the Small Tour at the subtopwedstijd in Ermelo. I am
very pleased with his performance. He is very fine to
ride on the competition, but
after being a little time out of competing I have been
driving al little bit to
careful. In the
Prix St Georges we got 61.71%and in the Inter I got 62.17%
Schatzmann to start in the dressage Hoefslag Trophy

experience. He will start on a competition in Rijssen. We wish him

and successful time here in
Successful visit to Taiwan
Last week we went a few
days to Taiwan. During my visit I trained the horses who recently arrived from the
Netherlands. I also gave several lessons to my Taiwanese clients. To conclude my visit there was a show evening. It was
the first time that a such a show
was held in Taiwan. During this evening I rode 3 horses in dressage and there were
also 2 jumping horses to which I
also give some
guidance. It was a very nice evening and the visitors were very enthusiastic
about our performance. On the picture with
High score for Schatzmann during Almelose Ruiterdagen
during the week of
the Almelose Ruiterdagen staying in Taiwan, I
could only start one time. With Schatzmann I started in the class Z2. Schatzmann did a very fine test and
that was much appreciated by
the jury. With a rate
of 71.2% we
knew, with a difference of 8% for second place,
to win the test.
Victory Tour with Schatzmann set forth
Last weekend we
went to Marienheem with Schatzmann. I rode with him in
the class Z2. Also
this time we knew to obtain twice the
first place. Although
the test area was a little bit wave i had a nice
drive. The first test I had to ride a little bit more but the second
test it all seemed to go
almost naturally. I myself
was very pleased with the
tests. The first juror
was also very satisfied with
my test and rewarded
with 67.6%, the jury of the second test had a completely different picture of my horse and my test. Where I felt I had
ridden very nice, he was quite negative about
most points, eventually I got for this test was 61.1% which was still
good for a first place.
Especially compared to our
scores over the last time, these scores were very low. I am very pleased with the progress Schatzmann and I
lately make. We still have
a small number of tests in the class Z2 then we
will make the jump to
the class ZZ licht.
We have our keur elite mare Zurona (Negro x Vincent) covered again and recentently she
is scanned pregnant. Zurona is covered by the stallion Charmeur (Florencio
x Jazz). Charmeur is a dressage horse with a great silhouette, self-carriage and very good gaits. He has a very uniform collection offspring and comes from a rich predicated bloodline, we think he will
fit very well with our
Zurona also a very rich
Boeve's K3 Noir castrated
Recently we had
Boeve's K3 Noir castrated so we can focus him
completely on the sport. Boeve's K3 Noir feels great again after castration and it seems he has no problems of the castration. We
will rebuild him calmly
to his level and then we will be back on shows again.
Nice clinic during the HTC day in Ermelo
Last Saturday I and one of my students, Mariska
Meenhuis, gave a clinic during the national HTC
day in Ermelo .
Accompanied by Gera van Lent, I gave a clinic

nowadays the talents can get
this kind of attention to make it possible to
the get the sport to a higher
Double victory for Schatzmann in Rijssen
At the dressage days in Rijssen we started with Schatzmann in the class Z2. I had a
fine ride with Schatzmann, I could ride him very nice closed and he was very well carrying himself
tests. The judges were very pleased with our tests which resulted in two first places with 67.9% and 69.4%. With this performance we were also qualified for the finals on Saturday afternoon. Saturday we had a busy schedule because I also went to the HTC day in Ermelo. When I arrived in
Rijssen Schatzmann was
already waiting for
me. Unfortunately, Schatzmann had some tension and
he didn't show as good he normally could, we got 61.18% and with this percentage we were not
placed for a prize.
Some of my students also knew to performe very well the dressage days at Rijssen. Susan Stegehuis got a first and a
second place in the class M1. Mariska Meenhuis achieved a third place in the ZZ-light, a first place in

seven courses he
drove, he drove 5 whithout faults. And
during the finals he
knew to achieve a fourth pace.
We are very proud that Jay is doing well on the Dutch competitions and for him it is a good way to gain
Successful start Schatzmann in Wierden
At the competition in Wierden we received a first and second place with Schatzmann in the class Z2. During the first trial we got much tension when Schatzmann remained as the only horse on the
ground. This led to some
faults and a score of
64.7% was good for second place. The second test was alongside a
narrow ditch. Here
I could keep the attention of
Schatzmann and with a
score of 63.8%,
we knew to win this test.
Schatzmann keeps winning and also first prize in the Prix St Georges for Boeve's K3 Noir
competition in Diepenveen Schatzmann won both of the test in the Z2. I had a super
ride with Schatzmann and rode two accurate
tests. I really love riding horse because he always gives the best of himself and likes to work for
me. Both tests we achieved 68.5% and
in the 2nd test we
stood 4% above the number
With Boeve's K3 Noir we claimed the first price
in the Prix St Georges with 64.74%. I could ride him nice to the hand
and I got the chance to ride him more stronger. During the
Intermediaire I tried to get more out of Boeve's K3 Noir. But unfortunately this resulted in more tention which let into some
faults. We got 63.03% for this test but that
was to less to be ranked for a prize.
Again double victory for Schatzmann and Rocky LVD second place in Subli cup
Last Tuesday I
Schatzmann and Rocky LVD a competition in Schaijk. Schatzmann won both tests in the
Z2 with 65% and 65.59%. Although Schatzmann has to become al little bit
stronger, he 's doing very fine in
de tests. The judges were also very positive about its performance although there are
still some small points of
attention. Rocky LVD got a shared second place in the Subli cup with 70.6%. LVD Rocky begins to
develop fine and starts to get better use of his own body.

Taiwanese riders visting the Netherlands
Last weeks our
friends from taiwan came visiting the
Netherlands. They came to the Netherlands to look for new
horses and also to gain some
experience. I helped them training some of the purchased horses and also
one of the riders was able

Double victory for Schatzmann
On the last day in March we had our first outdoor competition for this
year. I rode with Schatzmann in Vorden in the class Z2. Despite Schatzmann was quite busy in the warming up we rode a very fine test. Both tests we were able to achieve first place with 68.5% and 65.9%. In both tests, we got
very nice comments from the judges who were very satisfied about the tests.
Schatzmann second place in Marienheem
Last weekend we went with Schatzmann to Marienheem. We managed to
achieve a 2nd place
with 65.23% in the class Z2. In this test we
got a lot of 8's, but unfortunately we also got some lower
points due to some failures. Although we still can improve I get more control in the test, so I am very content with the progress that Schatzmann is
making. Since the pricing of
the Z2 was together with the ZZ-licht we hade to give
away the first place to Frank Hosmar with Tiesto
who started in the
ZZ-liht and got 65.43%.

At the Regional Championships in Bathmen Schatzmann received a third place.
There was a very strong leading group so there was a lot of competition.
Unfortunately I suffered a stomach flu so I wasn't totally myself in the riding.
But I was very pleased with Schatzmann who showed very fine test and freestyle.
So we can look back at a very nice result. Sadly only the first 2 riders will go

with 67,70% which was 3% higher than the rider on the second place.
Schatzmann wins District Championship
At the District Championship in Saasveld Schatzmann became District Champion

conditions of this championship were not very good. The ground was to hard and
there was a lot of disurbance because of the reparation of a pump system in the
riding arena. Because of the disterbance we got tension in te first test,
however the results weren't dissapointing. The second test we recovered and we

his 3rd time in a big arena! we had the 3rd price with 74%.
The next day we drove to Almelo for the second time Prix St. Georges with
Boeve's K3 Noir. The test was already slightly better as the one in Kootwijk so
