Several Dutch Wins in Pompadour

Friday, July 24, 2009

Dutch Jenny Schreven (24) is a gold and silver team medallist at the Juniors and Young Riders in 2003 and 2005 and 2006, showing her horse Kennet W. The CDI3* show in Pompadour was her international Grand Prix debut showing 17 year old Krawall. Krawall has been trained by Dutch Bart Bax to Grand Prix and now belongs to the Schreven Stables. Jenny and Krawall to her surprise immediately took the win in Grand Prix. In their second test Grand Prix Special she  became the runner up. Jenny Schreven was very happy with her prosperous debute. “In Grand Prix Krawall really did a good job going steadily through the test. Only the last piaffe lacked a bit of activity but I am very happy with the results”, Jenny remarked.


The Dutch celebrated a win in the Freestyle to music as well with Karin Nijvelt and approved stallion Maestro. Maestro had been out of competition for a while but proved to be in form again. “We have been practising the half passes lately and this proved to be effective”, Karin said. She continued: “Due to the heavy rain fall the Freestyle arena was replaced to a place near the stables. This felt good, as horses had so much to see that they felt they better concentrated on their riders and so much horses did.”

Karin Nijvelty also had some successes with her six year old Wall Street in the six year old class. Jenny Scheven had some nice placements with her Proud (Jet Set D x Purioso) and Popeye (Lancet x Purioso) at Intermediate level. In the end Dutch Joyce Lenaerts won the combined inntermediate class of the two French shows Vierzon and Pompadour. Spanish Claudio Castille showing Jade won the combined prize for the two French shows Vierzon and Pompadour at Grand Prix level.
