Andreas and Stamina at Nordic Baltic Championships
Last weekend Andreas and Stamina participated in the Nordic Baltic Championships in Aalborg; they were, therefore, almost on home ground.
The team competition in Grand Prix took place the first day. Stamina made a great performance, and they obtained 71.94% and placed third individually in the class. The Danish team placed second and earned a silver medal.
Grand Prix Special on Saturday was qualifier for the individual finals taking place Sunday. It was Stamina's first Grand Prix Special, however, nobody could tell. The pair made a superb performance, scoring 71.58%; and once again they placed third in the class.
In the Grand Prix Kür on Sunday, Stamina made yet another very good and steady round which earned them 73.80%; they finished fourth, which was unfortunately right after the medal winners. All in all, it was a very good and educational show for Stamina, who is still young and inexperienced at this level.
We are now looking forward to the next show, which is Falsterbo in week 28. Stamina will participate in CDI Grand Prix, and we also have several young horses in the championships for 5- and 6-year-olds.
Three 5-year-olds still part of the team for WCYH
The third selection for WCYH took place yesterday. We are extremely happy that three of our horses are now on to the final selection, taking place in the middle of July at Vilhelmsborg.
The three 5-year-old horses fighting for the desired 4 spots on the team participating in WCYH in Verden are: the gold medal mare Fiontina, the silver medal mare Fiontini and the licensed premium stallion Vincent Maranello.
Marianne and Super Mario selected for WCYH initial team
This week Marianne and the 6-year-old Super Mario went to Warendorf to participate in the WCYH selection for the German breeding association. The first day, the riders focused on daily training; and on the second day, the riders rode the program in front of the selection board. It went really well both days; and Marianne and Super Mario were selected for the final selection, taking place in Warendorf at the beginning of July.
