2016-2017 KNHS FEI Pony Cup

Dutch A-team rider Brandy Bos and her 12-year old Charming Foret became the winners of the first leg of the 2016-2017 KNHS Dutch FEI pony show circuit, sponsored by Felix Juristen. The first qualifier was held indoors at equestrian centre De Kroo in Nieuw en St. Joosland on 27 December 2016.

Thirty-three combinations contested the first leg to contest this FEI Dressage Pony level competition, which serves as a squad selection and CDI team observation event. Four combinations were able to score above 70%.

Bos and her Dutch bred Welsh pony Charming Foret (by Bodo x Leun's Velds Elegant) scored the winning mark of 72.142% to top the board. Sam Oudhof and the German Riding pony mare Bodethal's Kosima were the runners-up with 71.673%, whereas Fleur van de Graaf and the experienced buckskin Welsh pony Rhyfedd Spike landed third place with 70.384%.

"We had a good top group with riders who rivaled each other and who rode strong tests," said judge Janine van Twist. "I think the team trainer will have a nice group of combination who are promising for the future." The brand new Dutch pony team trainer Monique Peutz travelled all the way from Groningen in the north of Holland to Nieuw en St. Joosland in the south to watch all the riders compete.

"Brandy rode a very clean test on Charming Foret on which I have very little to remark," Van Twist added. "Maybe the pony could be a bit more collected." This was a point on which Sam Oudhof and Bodethal's Kosima scored well. "Sam rode a beautiful test. Just like Brandy she has ridden more at this level."
