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 73%!

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, and the training with Edward was also very successful. The day before the 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. Nevertheless, the 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. With a score of 70.68% they achieved a sixth place. Linda and Rocky LVD were very happy with this great result in their second international competition. The coming internationals are planned in Hagen (Germany) and Ostend (Belgium)

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 applause.

Rocky 2th place in his debuut Prix st Georges

This sathurday the 28 of march we went to Genemuiden. They orginised a big "suptop" show. Rocky LVD is very cool at shows and this time he was doing great again.

Schatzmann had a good debuut in the Inter II

In februari we went to Ankum with Schatzmann for his first Inter II test. It is a big show organised by the hosrse family Kasselmann. More than 30 starters came oute in this test. Schatzmann was a bit nervous in the warm up, but in the arena he gave his best. We had a few little mistakes but overall it was a good test. We came out with a score off over 65% and just out of the prices.

Rocky seems a born winner

Monday was the start of the big show event in Almelo. Each year from all over the country riders come to compete for a whole week. The combinations can ride both jumping as dressage. Rocky LVD did two tests in the level Z2. He was nice to ride and this resulted in 228 and 233 points for a clear victory. On Thursday Rocky will appear in the arena again.

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 .

Dutch Championship for Rocky LVD

The weather was beautiful last weekend 6 and 7 september on the Dutch Championships in Ermelo. Rocky had to start in the Z1 level. In the preselection on Friday we had to start in 4th place. Rocky did a great test. The scores were a bit disappointing especially at one judge but we did qualify for the final as 5th for Saturday. During the final Rocky did a good test but we missed the expression from friday. The scores were nice and the comments were very nice. We achieved a 9th place. I was very satisfied with this achievement.

A very succesvol show in Almelo with my three black men.

Last Saturday 31 August there was a nice competition organized in Almelo. There was the ability to ride from the class Z1 to the Grand Prix. A real dressage festival. We had good weather and because the courses are beautiful and on sand everything was excellent.

As first on start was my young stallion Rocky LVD, he started in the Z1 class. We won both tests with 228 and 238 points. This was a nice preparation for the upcoming NK.

Then it was Boeve's K3 Noir's turn. K3 is feeling really well and that we can notice on the scores. Despite that I still have some tension in the beginning, the test 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 place.

Well a very successful competition.

Rocky District Champion

The Overijsselse or also called Region Championships were held this year in Lonneker. The Organization had done its best to make a beautiful out of it. but because the jumping and the dressage were far apart it was a somewhat quiet show.

On Friday we rode our first test. In total there were two rings Z1 level. In each ring around 18 competitors which five Z1 participants were allowed through to the finals the next day. We won this test.

Ten 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 time.

Prix St. Georges debut for Schatzmann

Saturday, March 23, I am driven with Boeve's K3 Noir and Schatzmann to Hünxe to start there with both horses in the Prix St. Georges. The test I rode with K3 didn't go very fine, he was 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 future.

Victory for Boeve's K3 Noir in Gorssel

During the Prix we were awarded second prize with a score of 66.18%. In the Paardenkrant was the reaction of a juror to read, she had been very positive about our test and especially the elegant and pleasant atmosphere had addressed her. The Inter I we won, unfortunately was a juror less to talk about our test since we had a big points difference between the two judges. Therefor the score of 62.89% was a bit dissapointing.

Nice rides during the Dutch Championships

I really had a fine ride with Schatzmann and with a score of 65.81% I stood for a long time at the first place. Eventually we ended up a tie for fifth place and thus we could also start in the freestyle. In the freestyle, I could drive fine and I was very satisfied. Because of my fine feeling and good comments from the side I found my points were a little disappointing. With a score of 66.5%, we knew to achieve a seventh place in the freestyle. The Dutch Championships, we have concluded with an overall eighth place with 66.16%


Good results in Denekamp and Raalte

Saturday, March 2, I came with Schatzmann and Rocky at the start in Denekamp during the Denekamp Dressage Days. With Schatzmann we knew to gaine a third prize with 63.71%. I am very satisfied with the test that we have ridden. Schatzmann ran fine a test, I had him very sharp at the test. Because of this he just got too hot causing some errors. This test was a very nice exercise for the Dutch Championships which will be helt on Friday, March 8 at De Meern. At the NK we will be the first starter at Nine o'Clock.

With Schatzmann we knew to become Reserve Champion. In the first test Schatzmann was 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 resulted in a third place with 62.43%. The second test we knew us take revenge, with a percentage of 67.25% we knew to put the freestyle on our name. The final championship was about the average of both tests, in which we have become Reserve Champion in the class ZZ-licht. With this we also have a ticket for the Dutch Championships obtained.

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.

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.

First match of the Twente Cup in Wierden

Last Friday, 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.


Big victory for Rocky LVD during Subli Cup in Assen

Last Saturday 6 October, we drove with Rocky LVD to Assen for the Subli Cup. After we had a lot of rain all week the sun came through nicely and we were already in a good mood on the way to Assen.

Rocky LVD was very nice to ride and with only a lapse in the extended trot the rest of the test was flawless. The test was also highly appreciated by the judges and we knew to win with a score of 75.2%, with this score we were more than 5% above number 2. I was also very pleased with the comments of the jury: Rocky LVD is a very good horse, with three good movements, he has a beautiful self-carriage and is very confirmed in the exercises.

Busy but successful weekend in Haaksbergen

Last weekend, from 14 September to 16 September, the annual competition for the Silver Star at the Sterruiters in Haaksbergen took place again. Every day had to ride one or two horses. For Sir Sinatra and Abigail it was our first time to ride in a competition, both in the class Z1.

With Abigail I compete two days and the first day she was very impressed with everything. The second day it was already better and this resulted in a 6th prize with 220 points and a 4th prize with 213 points.

A successful Hippiade for Schatzmann

Last Friday, September 7 in Ermelo started in the Dutch championships in basic dressage, the Hippiade. In total there were 48 participants in the klazze Z2 and on Friday we were divided into 2 groups. Of both groups there were 6 participants through to the semi-finals on Saturday. I rode a good first test with Schatzmann. In my group, I knew to achieve a 4th place with a score of 65.69% The next morning the best 12 had to ride the second test and we already 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.

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 iron just 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 drove 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 group.

Again super scores for Schatzmann

Last Wednesday, 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 test. With 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 place.


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 Augustin Ambt Delden.


Schatzmann gets top marks in the dressage Amarantevenings

We started on the dressage Amarantevenings in Haaksbergen and there I knew to seize 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 Freestyle. This 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 Evenings. We going to ride a Z2 test and in addition we will also ride our freestyle.

Sunday, July 29 we will start in 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 2nd place 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

Here the link of the compilation of the show that we have given 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%

Next week Jay, one of the Taiwanese riders who we support, will be back to the Netherlands to gain some competition experience. He will start on a competition in Rijssen. We wish him great success and hope that he will have an instructive and successful time here in the Netherlands.

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 Aito.

High score for Schatzmann during Almelose Ruiterdagen

Since I'm 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.

Zurona pregnant

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 predicated bloodline.

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 with the Small Tour horse Sylvester (Lancelot) from Inge Meijer and Mariska Meenhuis rode her horse Amon (v. Solitary) which she starts in the class Z1. With great interest of the selected talents of the HTC we showed roughly the buidling of a young horse to the Small Tour. Then the future talents could ride themselfs a test which was judged by me and a couple of other judges. I really enjoyed this day, I think it is very good that nowadays the talents can get this kind of attention to make it possible to the get the sport to a higher level.

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 in both tests.

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.

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

During the 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 two.

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

LVD Rocky begins to develop fine and starts to get better use of his own body.

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 to start on a competition. Jay went to a competition in Albergen where he started with 3 horses. On the last day, he even rode his first Z course, unfortunately he had miscalculated a jump but the rest of the course he didn't receive any faults. Meanwhile they returned to Taiwan to work with the experience there again. And soon there will be a couple of horses to leave Taiwan to be riden for the competitions there.

Double victory for Schatzmann

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%.

Prix ST Georges and Intermediate I in Marienheem with Boeve's K3 Noir



Last weekend we went to Mariënheem with Boeve's K3 Noir. We've been riding two fine tests in Mariënheem. Unfortunately we had some small mistakes in the tests. Particully in the Inter I the mistakes were harshly blamed and the good points less appreciated so the result was a bit dissapointing.



Very nice results for Boeve's K3 Noir in Uden



Last tuesday I went to Uden with Boeve's K3 Noir to ride in the Prix St Georges en Intermediate I. We gained a third place in the Prix ST Georges and a second place in the Intermediate I.

Schatzmann third on Regional Championships

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 to the Dutch Championships, so the Championships will end here for us.


My student Inge Meijer gained the Championshipstitle in the Z1. We congratulate her with this fine result and wish her all the luck at the Dutch Championships.

This was appreciated by the judges and rewarded 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 Z2. We had to ride 2 tests to recieve the championships. Unfortunatly the 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 Asian Games

My Taiwanese pupil Alex had invited me to go to China to prepare him for the Asian Games. Sunday, November 14 was the day of my first Asian Games.
Unfortunately, for our team is didn't go as well as we hoped.
Because it was very difficult for us to import horses from Taiwan to China, We had to borrow two horses from China.

Alex had a black stallion that could move normally.
Unfortunately, the combination was still to green to be able to score enough during the test.
It was a very good time with very nice weather.
