Top ten places for the first competitions of the year !

After a well-deserved break, it was time for the first competitions of the year last weekend. While Constant participated at Jumping Amsterdam, stable rider Gavin Harley travelled to warmer regions in Oliva. Both obtained nice results!


Last Friday, Gavin and Understone van de Kapel (Happy Wind d’Hof ten Bosch) obtained the second place in the 1m40 Gold 3. They performed a double clear round in 32.27 seconds. The next day, Gavin did even better with Ralphy Utopia de Ransbecq (v. Ohio van de Padenborre): after yet another double clear in 30.75 sec., over two seconds faster than the next combination, our rider obtained a beautiful victory in the big test (1m45 Gold 4)!


Meanwhile, Constant also obtained great results at Jumping Amsterdam. On Friday, he took the second place in the Mercedes Benz prize, a 1m45 test. Constant and Diamanthina van ’t Ruytershof (Diamant de Semilly x Carthago) stayed clear over the two rounds in 24.60 sec.

Double clear again the Grand Prix Amsterdam (1m60) yesterday for Constant and Citizenguard Taalex (Tangelo van de Zuuthoeve x Alexis Z) with a 38.32 sec. time, good for the sixth place.


A great start of the new year for Van Paesschen Equestrian Center!


Our next stop is Jumping Bordeaux this week, where Constant will take Citizenguard Cadjanine Z and Diamanthina van ’t Ruytershof.
