2014-2015 KWPN Stallion Competition

The 4-year old All At Once, the 5-year old El Capone and the 6-year old Desperado were the winners of the first leg of the 2014-2015 KWPN Stallion Competition held at the KWPN headquarters in Ermelo, The Netherlands, on Wednesday 26 November 2014. The first qualifier was judged by Toine Hoefs, Jeroen Hulsman and Ton de Kok.


Training Your Horse

"If there were a Piaffe World Championship, in which each participant had ten horses to work with, I am sure that I would win," said a confident Jorgen Olsen says with a twinkle in his eye and a warm smile. A bold statement from a humble horseman who knows his worth. That ́s okay, when you know what you are talking about!


A Walk on the Premises

Coby and Marlies van Baalen's "Dressage Stable Van Baalen" is nested in the flat, rural countryside in Brakel, The Netherlands, located in between the rivers Maas and Waal. Based on fertile farmer land with fields stretching as far as eyes can reach, this quiet dressage yard has been a centre for cultivating young dressage talent from grassroots level up to Grand Prix. The training centre was proclaimed "Dutch Equestrian Entrepreneur of the Year" at the 2014 Horse Event in Deurne, The Netherlands, rewarding Team Van Baalen for its professional and successful management of their thriving dressage business.


Young Guns in Dressage

For German junior rider Lucas Alecco Roy his dressage career is one juggling multiple duties and learning from the "words of wisdom" he gets at school, from his trainers and from his horse. At the 2014 CDI-PJYR in Babenhausen on 11 - 14 September, 17-year old Roy and his Hanoverian stallion Wisdom finished third in the Kur to Music finals with an international personal best score.


Greatest Oldies

None who witnessed one of the worst torrential downpours the Aachen show grounds had ever seen will forget that day. The heavens opened and changed a well looked after dressage arena into a lake. Fortunate were those sitting under the roof of the grandstand, less lucky were the horses who had to perform in this deluge.
