The 4-year old KWPN licensed stallion Invershin has returned to The Netherlands. Two successive riding accidents in July prevented rider Jennifer Hoffmann from properly training the young stallion.

Invershin's owner Eric Koele put his black stallion (by Charmeur x Balzflug x Cadmus xx) into training with German based American Grand Prix rider Jennifer Hoffmann in February 2017. Hoffmann was supposed to train and compete the stallion for the 2017-2018 KWPN Stallion Competition shows this winter.

After fulfiling some breeding duties in Holland in the summer, the stallion never returned to Germany

"Invershin went home for breeding duties and was to come back in training when his duties were finished. It was very unfortunate as Eric Koehle wanted to bring him back, but it was just days after my horrific second accident," Hoffmann told Eurodressage.

Hoffmann suffered two successive riding accidents in July. On 12 July she sustained a bad concussion and severe compression of the spine, when she entered the stabling tent astride her horse at the CDI Cappeln. Her stallion spooked, which caused her to come up from the saddle and hit her head very hard on the steel beam. Two and a half weeks later, Jennifer was in another freak accident!

"I got kicked in the face by a young stallion and spent several days in the hospital with another severe concussion and a broken nose," Hoffmann explained. "So it was super bad timing that I couldn't take Invershin, because I couldn't ride normal for quite a while."

Late August the black stallion went into training with Dutch young rider Carlijn Vaessen.
