Delightful GP debut for Nabeau Van Het Migroveld Z
Getting to the five-star level is one thing, being able to stay there is something else! It is something that every top rider has already experienced personally. To be able to keep competing at the highest level week after week, you need to have enough GP horses available, which is not always easy. But those future GP horses must of course also be trained and gain the necessary experience and that was what Niels did last weekend in Azelhof in Lier.
For example, Niels appeared at the start with Nabeau Van Het Migroveld Z, a son of Nabab de Rêve, who came to our stable since the end of last year. After a fault during the first day and an 11th place on Saturday, Niels also started him in the CSI2* GP! They jumped clear in the first round and ended up nicely on a 9th in their first GP after a tiny touch in the jump-off.
But also Diornella-D and the 7-year-old Nogana Van Het Peggershof were successful at the show. Both horses jumped 2 out of 3 rounds clear and winning prizes with a 9th and 12th place respectively.
Last but not least there was also the debut with Frenchy VDS, whom we recently received from the van de Poel family. On Saturday Niels and Frenchy jumped to an 11th place in the 1.40m class.
