Despite October meaning the beginning of autumn and colder days, we are very pleased about how this season has started. The indoor competitions are challenging especially for the young horses. For some of them it was the first time jumping inside!
Mauro has been busy going to training shows with the four-year old horses. On their first shows they behaved well and showed great improvements. One of our favorites is Dynamite van’t Legita Hof Z (Diamant de Semilly x Berlin). The 5yo and 6yo (Emilia HH Z, Catoki’s Cornet, Langobardo) horses enjoyed a nice break after the summer season and are slowly starting their indoor shows, showing great potential at the Euregio in Sentower. Our 6yo Memphis (Non Stop x Cassini I) ridden by Rob Tijskens also performs better and better!
Meanwhile, Simon had the amazing opportunity to fly to Buenos Aires, Argentina, to compete for Team Europe at the Youth Olympic games! He enjoyed a fantastic time, bringing home a silver medal with the team and a 7th individual place! After this experience, Simon competed at the international shows in Peelbergen and Lier with four horses having overall good results with a clear round in the GP (Peelbergen; Vivolta) and all clear rounds for 6yo Harola.
Viktor started his 1* international debut very successful with a second place and winning final round at the Peelbergen show and several placings during the Euregio (Sentower) with his friend Bubsylon!
The “business” side of the stable also enjoyed some nice success with three of our beloved horses being sold to various countries. We wish the new riders the best of luck in the future!
• Dream du toultia Z (Darco x Silvio) 6yo; after a successful season with Mauro, left to England. Was owned together with family member Eric Morssinkhof (Micky Morssinkhof Sporthorses @ Psc Lichtenvoorde.)
• Augustinus Lan (Indoctro x Nimmerdor) 13yo; after being on our side for many years, succesfully in many shows with Evy, left to Denmark to jump Children on Horses.
• Mabelle M (Zilverstar T x Darco) 6yo homebred; after starting to show off great potential with Mauro has left to a Brazilian owner.
