Ranking points for Diornella-D!
The year is gradually coming to an end and normally we would already be fully looking forward to the annual closing event at Jumping Mechelen. But unfortunately the end of the year will look slightly different this year than usual… Jumping Mechelen was canceled due to corona and that means that we will close this year with a two-week Christmas Tour at Azelhof in Lier.
In any case, the first week was already successful, because on Friday afternoon Niels noted a nice performance with Diornella-D during the Longines Ranking class. They stayed clear in the basic round and were one of the 25 combinations that managed to qualify for the jump-off. Here, they kept it clear again, which earned them a 4th place and some Longines ranking points! Also on Wednesday during the opening day, Niels and Diornella-D had already jumped a clear round.
Niels also competed last weekend with the young talents Nouvelle D'Or Van 't Misthof and Scarlina De Tiji Z. Both horses showed that they have the necessary capacities and jumped 3 out of 3 days clear. Furthermore Niels also counted on the 8-year-old Matador again and he did not disappoint either. The son of Emerald Van 't Ruytershof jumped 3 clear rounds as well in the 1.35m classes.
