Gilles and the team at Stal Nieuwenhof have been in a winning mood lately. After a succesful week in Hickstead, it was time to go to Valkenswaard, to the Tops International Arena. During 3 days there were classes for the youth and also a CSI2* competition. It was the perfect program for Gilles and Ines to go to the show together.
Ermitage Kalone, Mystic C van T Heyveld an Miu Miu van Overis all had a very good weekend with Gilles in the saddle. For Ermitage Kalone there were 3 clear rounds and the 8 year old stallion showed his quality by ending up in second place in his first ever CSI2* Grand Prix over a heigth of 1.45m. Miu Miu van Overis definitely was in a winning mood. She jumped to victory twice in the 1.40m classes and topped it off with another win in the 1.35m class on Sunday. Gilles and Mystic C van T Heyveld competed in the U25 classes. The mare ended up twice in second place in the 1.45m and 1.50m classes and on Sunday there was a fifth place in the 1.50m CSIU25 GP.
Ines traveled to the Netherlands with her pony stallion Goliath van de Groenweg and Judyan T van het Herdershof she competed in the Juniors category. With Goliath van de Groenweg she ended in a first, second and third place in the 1.15m CSI Pony classes.
