It was again a French-Belgian weekend for Hemeryck Godard stables with Anne-Sophie who was trampling the arenas of the international show jumping of Chantilly (FRA), while Rik was participating in the Gravenwezel national (BEL).
Registered on the Young Horses classes, Jarpur remained true to form. The horse completed deux perfect rounds before letting a bar fallen during the Grand Prix reserved for seven-year-old horses on Sunday. « I’m pleased with his courses. He works well and the results are there. »
The mare, Ilka Van de Kiezel, showed nice things with notably a ranking on the last day on a 2* class. « Those rounds were very formative for her, which enables her to perfect her evolution. »
At the national show jumping in Belgium, the young horses Cassamoon (alias Casallina), Déesse de la Sure and Jewel van’t Eigenlo were very promising. They all finished classes showing their good capacities for show jumping. « They have solid resources which let thinking of a great future. »
Newly arrived, Il Mio van’t Eigenlo, an eight-year-old son of Andiamo, was also present on the Belgium arena of Gravenwezel. « For this first competition together, he gave me a good feeling which makes me confident for what is coming. »
Finally, Conrad continues to improve and ranked fourth of a course quoted in 1.35m after a nice clear round. « The horse regains his good condition and will get more regularity on these heights. »
After these latest weeks of competition, Anne-Sophie’s horses will rest for a few weeks. Rik will cross Eastern Europe to take part in the 4* international show jumping of Poznan in Poland with Carlitto Van’t Zorgvliet, Bretling du Paradis Z and Ulyss Morinda.
