Tango Wins 2010 VHO Trophy
Hans Peter Minderhoud reclaimed the VHO Trophy at the 2010 KWPN Stallion Licensing, this time aboard his new Grand Prix horse Tango (by Jazz). The VHO Trophy is a special competition held annually at the KWPN licensing for small and big tour licensed KWPN stallions.
Only five competitors showed up this year for the 2010 VHO Trophy. It became a neck-to-neck race between two small tour horses and three Grand Prix stallions. The chestnut stallion Tango scored 75.50% and won with a minimal point difference from Edward Gal aboard the bay stallion United (by Krack C) with 75.17%.
Karen Galema and the black Maestro (by Contango) finished third with 70.33%. They were followed by another Contango offspring, Citango, which made his show debut with Grand Prix rider Laurens van Lieren. The new duo scored 67.67% and beat Thamar Zweistra on the 18-year old Rubiquil (by Rubinstein) with a score of 66.83%.
