During the event, where could be competed in different classes, Jorinde Verwimp appeared in the ring at both the Inter I and the Prix St. George. The pupils of Jorinde and Wim Verwimp also did really good at competition. For the rider Britt Gellens it was the first time after a competition break that she competed with the gelding Cardento. Despite the fact that the combination has taken a break, they managed to score well.
Debut in the Inter I
In the Inter I, Jorinde Verwimp competed with the horses Golddream and Kalahari. The Kalahari mare had an almost flawless test but still has much room for improvement in the overall picture. With a score of 66.9%, the second international score has already arrived. Golddream competed Inter I for the first time and, despite his inexperience, already showed very good parts. With a final result of 67.7%, the first international score has already been achieved immediately. Also present during the Inter I was the rider Diete Vos. With her test she achieved a score of 66%. Outside the Inter I, she also competed in the Prix St. George where she again achieved a score of 66%.
Talent for the future
Verwimp also appeared during the Prix St. George with up-and-coming talent Juwel in the ring. The combination not only achieved a score of 69.2%, but also won the first place. “This was only the second time that Juwel was ridden at Prix St. George level. The test went really well until we got a small error in the flying changes. Everything needs to be confirmed even more, but this already gives me a lot of confidence for the future. “, says Jorinde about Juwel.
Junior amazons Katelijne Maes, Louise Brauwers and Britt Gellens all managed to put down a strong Junior test. Katelijne Maes took first place after achieving 72.5%. Amazone Louise Brauwers achieved her second international score with her score of 67.8%. For Britt Gellens, it was the first time after a long game break that she appeared in the ring with Cardento, owned by Verwimp. With a score of 66.1% and still plenty of room for improvement, it was a great score for now.
