International debut for Emma Driesen

The competition rhythm is coming back again. After several competitions Jorinde Verwimp was present with a some of the team members from Dressuurstal Verwimp to ride at CDI St. Truiden. The competition offered different classes for the participants to register for. Jorinde appeared in the ring during the Inter I with Golddream (by Jazz) and Just a Little Bit Krack v / h Klaverhof (by Tango). She also competed the Grand Prix with Cape Town (by Conteur). Pupil Emma Driesen made her international debut during the competition.

Prix ​​St. George

CDI St. Truiden started for Jorinde with her participation in the Prix St. George with Golddream and Just a Little Bit Krack v / h Klaverhof. With Golddream Jorinde managed to achieve a score of 69.95%. Just below, Verwimp appeared on the score list with the test she had with Just a Little Bit Krack v / h Klaverhof (also called Joepy), which scored 69%. Diete Vos, in training with Wim Verwimp, also appeared in this class and got Dandy L (v. Wynton) a score of 67.79%.

Inter I

On the second day, both Jorinde Verwimp and Diete Vos, with the same horses as they had participated with in the PSG, appeared in the Inter I. Unfortunately, Diete Vos had some miscommunications so that the score stuck at 62.94%. Jorinde achieved a score of 69.9% with Golddream. Her test with Just a Little Bit Krack v / h Klaverhof was scored at 68.6%. By achieving these results, both horses were selected to ride the freestyle. Due to the regulations that a freestyle can be ridden with one horse per rider, Jorinde chose to do this with Golddream. Apart from some expensive mistakes, including in the broken line, Verwimp was very pleased with the freestyle.

Grand Prix

But Just a Little Bit Krack v / h Klaverhof and Golddream were not the only talents that Jorinde brought to CDI St. Truiden. The Conteur gelding Cape Town also competed these days in the Grand Prix. The first test gave a final result of 65.94%. The freestyle went without major errors and came to a final score of 70.59%. With still room for improvement, Verwimp is already looking forward to the next games.


For Emma Driesen, in training with Jorinde Verwimp, her participation in CDI St. Truiden was extra special as she was allowed to start internationally during the Juniors with Cardento (by Painted Black) for the first time. The first day the still new combination had some expensive mistakes. But the second day the feeling was a lot better and the combination had a nice test without major mistakes. With the freestyle on the last day, Emma rode another nice test and looked back at her first international show with a good feeling. Student Louise Brauwers also competed in the Juniors with the Johnson gelding Esprit. Unfortunately, Esprit suffered from a lot of tension, so the score was very depressed in the first test. During the freestyle the test went a lot better, which resulted in a final score of 66.47%.
