In the past few weeks DB Horses was active in Knokke where Stephan Conter hosted a wonderful event.
Students Claire, Ralph and Evelyne Putters also took part.
Ralph jumped in the 1m25 category for the first time: some very good courses and he achieved 4th place with Tornado.
His sister Evelyne nabbed victory in the small GP for ponies.
Claire rode Sombeke’s Fa Belle, Cristainville and Copain de Muze. She jumped her first ranking in the 1m45 category with Fa Belle committing only one fault in the second round, Cristainville jumped several rankings in de 1m40 category.
Lander himself took part with Unicstar, Eclatant, Jasco and Jasmin. Unicstar de Courcy, Kashmir’s eight-year-old gelding, made his debut at the CSI** level. He jumped an impressive zero fault round in the qualifiers in the 1m40 category.
On Sunday they jumped the GP in the 1m45 category. Due to a bad luck error at the last stage they were not allowed to return in the finals, but can nonetheless look back with pride.

Eclatant started in the categories for seven-year-old horses with some impressive zero fault courses. This seven-year-old Berlin gelding made quite an impression on several occasions with his remarkable jumping skills.
We can look back on two successful weeks full of impressive results and gaining a lot of experience.
Next week DB Horses will be active at the Kraal when the young horse championship starts.
