The southern European jumping tours are well on their way and the talents sold at Foal Auction Prinsjesdag do not remain unnoticed. At MET Oliva, Spain the Prinsjesdag-showjumpers have settled for some great results the last couple of weeks.
Take for example the only 5-year-old Creswell LVP Z (Casall x Quantum). Ridden by Belgium’s Lieven Devos this son of Casall jumps clear round after clear round. Lately, Creswell LVP Z finished 7th in one of the Young Horse Finals in Oliva. The 6-year-old Get Off (Numero Uno x Indoctro) performs excellent as well. Ridden by Irish top rider Trevor Breen, Get Off recently finished 4th in the finals for 6-year-olds in Oliva.
The now 11-year-old Carbani (Carolus II x Baloubet du Rouet) jumps well with British rider Jemma Kirk and recently took home a victory and a 4th place in one of the international classes. Swiss rider Rachel Sandoz and the 11-year-old Gigolo III (Cassini II x Chin Chin) perform great too in Oliva and lately delivered some clear rounds in the CSI2* ranking classes.
Meanwhile in the Netherlands, the KWPN-approved Edinburgh (Vleut x Darco) shows off his talent. Last weekend at Equestrian Centre de Peelbergen, the 8-year-old stallion and his rider Kristian Houwen finished 5th in the CSI2* 1.40m.
