Gilles Thomas was riding on the impressive arena’s at Jan Tops in Valkenswaard last weekend. Among others, Gilles started the two promising stallions Emitage Kalone (Catoki x Kannan) and Qannando B. & V. (Kannan x Emerald van 't Ruytershof). For Ermitage Kalone this was his reappearance after months in which the popular stallion was allowed to focus mainly on breeding. He immediately jumped to a fifth place in the 2*GP. Qannando also made a positive impression in Valkenswaard. The black seven-year-old stallion made no mistakes in Valkenswaard and jumped to second place in the final for six- and seven-year-old horses!
