Outstanding performance by our trainees
09 May 2016
Besides training and selling young horses, Lander also monitors young riders and amazons on a daily basis.
In the past weeks, the youth schedule was packed with events.
Claire jumped Cristainville and Sombeke’s Fa Belle in the CSIJ in Lier and Bonheiden.
In Lier she ranked 5th in the Juniors’ Grand Tour and committed just one fault in her first GP in the 1m40 series.
A week later in Bonheiden she ended up 5th in the U25 1m40 series with Fa Belle.
In the Juniors categories Cristainville finished 6th on the first day and 10th in the GP.
Ralph and Evelyne also took part, in the categories for Ponies and Students. It was their first time riding on the international stage and it didn’t go unnoticed.
Ralph won the Small Tour for Students on the last day in Lier and his sister Evelyne achieved the same in the Small Tour for Ponies.
A week later in Bonheiden they left their calling card once more. Evelyne won again with her pony Destiny on the last day. Ralph jumped Tornado to a 2nd place in the Small Tour and completed his first Students’ Grand Tour with only one fault in the 2nd stage.
At the Global Champions Tour in Antwerp Claire took part in the CSI, a wonderful opportunity and experience to be able to ride there. With her two top horses Cristainville and Fa Belle she ranked 6th, 7th and 9th.
Last week the Belgian Youth Championship took place in Neeroeteren.
In the Juniors category Claire rode Cristainville and Fa Belle in the championship. She performed very well and jumped faultless courses with both horses, resulting in a 5th and 8th place in the Finals.
In the Finals on Sunday she chose Fa Belle in the first round. It did not go perfectly, but she rebounded with a strong 2nd round.
Both riders and horses performed wonderfully. We can look back on a very successful few weeks.
