European Bronze for Z-horses

16 / 07 / 2018
Last weekend the youth traveled en masse to the French Fontainebleau where the European Youth Championships were on the program. Here, the Z-horses successfully participated in the medal fight! The Belgian Children's team was able to win bronze after an exciting competition thanks to clear rounds from Berlini from Second Life Z (Berlin) and Quitona de la Cour Z (Quintus). For Berlini, bred by Thierry Hendrikx, it wasn’t the first stage performance this year. The mare, coming from the same dam line as Hardrock Z (1m60 sj. Emanuel Andrade), Crowntano Z (1m45 sj. Judy-Ann Melchior) and Lord II Z (1m60 sj. Geir Gulliksen), already won silver two months ago at the Belgian Championships for Children under the saddle of Aurelia Guisson. Quitona de la Cour Z is also no stranger at the international scene. This brown mare saw the light of day thanks to Monique Vanhollebeke-Roelens and comes out of the same dam line as Jule van den Tinnenpot (1m60 sj. Michael Duffy). With Paris Vandousselaere at the reins, the combination already won several classes this year, including the Nations Cup in Wierden!

There was unfortunately no medal for a Z-horse in the classes for Juniors. Staralme ESC Z, a 13-year-old son of Stakkato, jumped to an individual fifth place under the saddle of the Swedish Janelle Larsson. Staralme was created in Germany by Franz-Josef Jansen who already bred several international jumping horses. He is, for example, also the breeder of Cassina Z who was sold at the Zangersheide Quality Auction in 2006 and who did jump to a medal in Fontainebleau. Under the saddle of the Danish Benedikte Rie Truelsen, the Cassini I x Voltaire daughter won bronze during the team competition of the Young Riders!

For Kingston Town 111 Z, ridden by the Belgian Dieter Vermeiren, and Cleopatra Z, under the saddle of the Belgian Jeroen de Winter, there was no medal in the classes for Young Riders. The Belgian team finished on two penalty points too much for a bronze medal and also individually there no medal for Kingston Town 111 Z by an inch. The son of Kashmir van Schuttershof, bred by Stal Harrie Theeuwes, was second in the opening class and knew, as one of the few, to jump a clear round in the second round of the final but unfortunately had to settle for an individual 6th place.
