Today the new truck was picked up at Absolut Trucks.
Very exciting and everyone is already looking forward to the next show. Especially Line, who can finally drive a truck.
Severo took 7-year-old Kingston up a notch and showed him in PSG. Always exciting when you wear the tailcoat for the first time on a horse. He did very well in his debut and won the class. "He always tries his best!" Severo said.
During the Indoor Brabant (Dutch Masters) Severo competed Freddy succesfull in the CDI3*. In the Grand Prix they scored 72,283% (4th place). Severo was pleased about how well Freddy coped with this atmosphere. During the freestyle they had two costly mistakes in the changes which dropped the score massively to just above 75%. They reached again the 4th place. All in all we are more than satisfied with the weekend and Severo reports that it was a fantastic event to attend.
Severo showed Jacob in the PSG and Womaniser in the GP. It is a great show and very near to our stable. Jacob won the class and showed a great test. Womaniser had some small errors here and there and didn't show himself as we hoped. Nevertheless Severo was happy about both horses and it was convenient to give them more routine during competitions.
Two days of training with Spanish Team Trainer and 5* Judge Francis Verbeek at Jurado Dressage. Severo trained his GP and upcoming horses with Francis and Cristian Tudela Ruiz has joined them with his horse as well. Great to have such an experienced woman on the ground. We're grateful to the Spanish Federation (RFHE) to make this possible and to receive this support.
It is with mixed feelings that we announce the sale of Dahoud. It's always difficult to let go one of our horses, but together with his owners (Jenny & Karli Nagel) we decided that it's the right moment and most important the right buyer. Dahoud was purchased by Diana Porsche and they fitted immediately very well together. Diana is very ambitious yet caring and we're sure that we will see this pair a lot in the future.
We wish all the best for Dahoud and Diana and want to thank all involved people.
After almost 2 years of working at Jurado Dressage and living in Denmark, it was time for Celine to start a new adventure. We will for sure miss her, but the whole team wishes her all the best on her next steps.
Severo rode Freddy and Womaniser in the Grand Prix at the local show at Hjallerup Rideklub (DK).
The first one to go was Freddy (Fürstenglory). He scored 72,6% and won the class. He had mistakes in the one-tempies and in one pirouette, but specially the beginning of the test looked outstanding.
Womaniser had his Grand Prix debut and scored 71,2%, which earned the second place. It was a good, but clearly inexperienced test. Severo says about him: " He has so much power, I'm excited to keep developing him."
Celine mounted Fontainebleau and showed an effortless test. The judges rewarded this smooth performance with 73,4% and the first place in M-level.
Severo brought "Be A Womaniser" along for his first Inter II. He's still a bit green in those lines, but Severo loved the feeling and the power that this little chestnut gives him. They scored 70%, which was also the win.
Jurado Dressage wishes all our friends, family, clients and sponsors a Merry Christmas. Thanks for the support throughout the year and the great memories we could make together.
We're enjoying some calm Christmas days and getting ready for 2023, with new motivation and goals.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! xxx
For the last competition of 2022, Severo and the horses went to a local show in Silkeborg (DK). He showed Freddy (Fürstenglory) in Grand Prix and had a really nice round. They scored 73,9% and won the class. Severo also showed Womaniser for the first time. He's a 12 years old gelding by Blickpunkt. They did a nice PSG and scored just over 70%, which got them the first place. Womaiser was a bit unfocused though, since he was missing his travel- & stable friend Freddy, and was calling for him throughout the test.
On Saturday Severo rode Fürstenglory at a national Grand Prix in Aalborg (DK). They both didn't really seem to find each other, so there was no perfect harmony. On Sunday than Severo adjusted the warm up and it went very well for the Equipage during the Grand Prix Special. They could win the class and end the weekend in a very happy way.
Due to Severo's absence (giving a clinic in Stuttgart), Celine had to mount Freddy and compete him in order to get his second local competition result, which will allow him to compete national.
Certainly not an easy task. With only two training sessions, Celine mastered it with ease and gave Freddy an other super competition experience and much more than the needed score. They achieved 76,5% on M-Level and the first place. Surely a nice day for Celine and the whole team.
Last weekend Severo took the pretty Fürstenglory to a competition on Intermediare II level. He behaved routinely and won the class with over 74%.
Fürstenglory is a gelding by Fürstenball x Rohdiamant and born in 2011. His owner Juliette Ramel trusted us with the training of this great horse, and we're excited what the future brings.
Severo competed Fontainebleau in the CDI2* PSG and could win the class with over 72%. They showed a pretty and error-free test.
The second horse he brought along was Dahoud. He exceeded the expectations in his World Cup debut and finished second in the Grand Prix and Grand Prix Freestyle, behind only Ingrid Klimke and Franziskus. In the freestyle they scored over 78% and one judge even ranked him number one.
At the beautiful Blue Hors, where the championship was held, Severo showed the 4-year-old Quantico (by Quaterhit) and the 6-year-old Kingston (by Franziskus). Celine presented homebred 7-year-old Karla (by Don Deluxe). The young horses showed up well and trained according to their age. It was a great experience for them. Kingston won the small final (B final). Beautiful riding and an adequate warm up was shown by us. About the results and judging we don't always have to agree in Dressage, it's important that we still believe in our horses and won't change them for anyone else. Congratulations to the winners and all other riders. It's a great success to qualify for this.
During the semi-final in Grindsted, Severo qualified 4yo Quantico and 6yo Kingston for the final. Celine showed Karla delightfully and also got a spot for the 7yo final, that will be held at Blue Hors in mid-October.
Our two young mares were awarded at the Danish Warmblood Elite-Mare Show in Herning. Toni showed both very well and according to their age. 4yo Gloria received the bronze medal and 3yo Essie received the silver medal.
Springborg's Essie: Quaterhit x Jazz
Gloria: Revolution x Apache x Gribaldi
Everything ready to go to CDIO Falsterbo in beautiful Sweden, but all plans had to change when Severo broke his leg. The doctors are certain that it will only take a few weeks, but that means a little summer break instead of competition schedule.
During the weekend Severo and Dahoud successfully competed in Grand Prix and Grand Prix Special at Kirstinelund Horse Festival (DK), winning both classes with scores above 71%.
Severo presented Quantico and Kingston at the qualifier for the Danish Young Horse Championship in Billund. Both horses did a great job and achieved the goal of qualifying for the semifinals. Toni showed a great test with the mare Bella Ciao and also qualified for the semi-finals.
