Last weekend, numerous Holsteiner horses once again collected victories and placements at international show grounds.
"I'm sure that the stallion has a great future ahead of him," said Harrie Smolders once about Uricas v/d Kattevennen by Uriko-Cassini I (Otto Boje Schoof, Hedwigenkoog), dam line 1916. And he always confirms the hopes of his Dutch rider. Now the combination competed in Basel (SUI) in a 1.55 meter show jumping test, the championship of Basel, and finished second.
Fourth place over 1.50 meters went to Cristel by Diamant de Semilly-Cento and Jérôme Guéry (BEL). The mare was bred by Ronald Nowee in the Netherlands and comes from line 18A2.
The Quidam de Revel-Contender son Quinn bred by Jürgen Hattebuhr, dam line 4220, and Tanner Korotkin (USA) won a 1.45 meter show jumping test in Wellington (USA). The chestnut had previously been very successful with the Dane Zascha Nygaard Andreasen - the rider in Andreas Kreutzer's stable took part in the European Championships in Riesenbeck with him, among other things, and won the Oldenburg Grand Prix in 2020.
Henora and Harm Lahde (GER) won a difficult class for young horses up to eight years old in Neustadt/Dosse (GER). The Casall-Quirado daughter, line 318D2, was bred by the Diedrichsen (Föhr) breeding community. Third place came with Cocodello by Cascadello I-Qute Capitol (Heidrun Mackerodt, Immenrode), line 6848, another Holsteiner. Michael Zwingmann (GER) was in the saddle.
Third place in a two-phase show jumping test over 1.45 meters in Neustadt went to Clarimo-Concerto II-daughter Be Aperle VA (Manfred von Allwörden, Grönwohld), line 328, and Diarmuid Howley (IRL).
