Relaxed Christmas tournament with an emotional finish

Laurens also presented a few of our horses in the Christmas-decorated indoor at our last show of the year and was able to conclude the 2023 show year with great satisfaction:

  • Athena (8yo by Diacontinus) finished second in the 1.25m class and got the third rank in the 1.35m class
  • Carrera Crystal (6yo by Carrera VDL) showed a beautiful clear in the 1.35m class
  • Emeric (5yo by Emerald van het Ruytershof) got the second rank in the 1.25m youngster class
  • Zalando (7yo by Zinedine) was clear in the 1.35m class
  • Philippa van Dael and her mare Kiss me were scored with an 8.4 in the 1.25m style class and placed second


Things got emotional at the last placement in 2023, which was also the last placement of judge Theo Breil, who ended his active judging career after 45 years. All the best and many thanks, Theo!
