Super BC and Brons in GP
It was a very busy but successful Belgian Championship at the Flanders Dressage Event at Meerdonk.
Isabel won the Brons medal in the Brons Cup, level 4 with the 7 yo mare Glorious. Glorious showed 3 steady tests and good performances.
In the Diamond Cup, Medium Tour, Cheatodon won 2 out of 3 tests, became 2nd in the freestyle and won the GOLD medal of the entire medium tour championship. This was quite an achievement for Isabel due to the difficult character of Cheatodon, and the difficult year they had together. This shows they are improving and on the right track!
In the Gold Cup, small tour level, Freedom made a progression. He didn't go that much to shows the past half year so everything was really exciting for him. In the big final freestyle inter1 he did a really nice test and scored 71,5%, which was good for a 4th place. Isabel ended up 7th with him in the whole championship, out of 30 combinations.
Young talent, Imagine, who is sold recently to Ciska Vermeulen, participated in the Young Horses Battle. Isabel rode 2 super nice tests with this 5 yo mare, but they just had 1 point too short to make it into the big finale.
In the Belgian Championship Seniors GP, Isabel and Aranco won again the BRONS medal (dito like last year). They showed 3 solid and steady tests, and a lot of progression.
Pupils also did a super job! Flore De Vos was on her way to win the gold medal in the young riders championship, but became 2nd, with a small difference. Dente De Schepper won the BRONS medal in this YR championship. Evy Lambrecht was qualified to ride the final freestyle level 4 and Ciska Vermeulen won the GOLD medal in the Para-Equestrian Championship.
