16 / 08 / 2016
At the Olympics the first showjumping medals will be handed out tomorrow. In Gesves, in the Belgian championships for young horses, the medals were distributed in the past two days. The final class, the Cup finals for 7-yr-olds, with direct qualification for the WC, was won by Belano vd Wijnhoeve Z (Berlin) under Jean-Christophe De Grande. The breeder is the De Cuyper family from Bever. Only the top three had stayed clear in the finals. And earlier in the BC finals for 5- and 6-yr-olds not many kept their slates clean. Specialists Virginie Thonon and Dieter Laheyne claimed the gold. Bronze always went to a shared place. In the 5-yr-olds Sarah Toussaint shared the medal with Tom Verduyn. Toussaint had saddled Arka de la Hart Z (Arko III), the daughter of her top-class mare Best de la Hart. Annelies Van Gestel and Little Lady vh Eigenlo (Zandor Z) finished in fifth place after a double clear in which no risks were taken. In the 6-yr-olds the Chippendale Z daughter Chavantele Z under Jerom Broecks won the bronze after finishing fifth last year at Gesves. In dact, there were two Chippendales in the jump-off of the BC for 6-yr-olds.
