Constand and Isabel win the Inter1 and students are great!
The qualification competition at Massenhoven went great for trainer Isabel and her students! Students showed they worked really hard this winter, and Isabel's Constand confirmed where he is good at!
Isabel started the handsome Coolhorses Constand in the Inter1 and won the test with 71,1%! That was 2% more then the second place, Jennifer Reimer with Daiquiri (69%). It was the first time Jennifer started her cool 10 year old stallion in an Inter1 Qualification. Jennifer is already stabled for 5 years at Coolhorses and wants to reach the highest level with her 'Kir', while being trained by Isabel! We will hear a lot from this ambitious rider the upcoming years!
Isabel also started Coolhorses Cheatodon for the first time in the InterB, a test for preparing horses up to the GP level. Cheatodon is a really talented horse but sometimes he flips... He showed both of his qualities during the test! The first page (trot/walk and piece of the canter tour) was super good! Around 75%... With 8 and 7,5 on passage, exctended trot and walk. But after that he started to freak out in the zig zag half-passes. isabel decided to ride some parts of the test again so he was able to relax and listen again... He started to calm down and the end of the test was good again. Hopefully next time without stress and a normally ridden test!!
In the Junior devision Dente De Schepper and Emaico, an 8 year old Gribaldi son, showed a nice test with a lot of energy! A 3rd place with 68% meant a good start of the new year!
In the St.Georges test Laura Smet and Flore De Vos showed a lot of progress... Flore and Catcher made more little mistakes then they normally do, but the quality of the trot/canter and the uphill in all excercises was a lot better! They received 64%.
Laura Smet and Acapulco had been long out of competing... for 2,5 years!! But they made a hugh and super return in the ring, scoring almost 67% and a 3rd place! Acapulco showed a nice trot tour with good expression and good changes!
A successful day for Isabel and the Coolhorses students!
