- Delphine Meiresonne -

International comeback also succesful!


Delphine can look back with satisfaction on her international comeback with Wipsy van het Heihof. The pair rode at the CDI3* Saumur and CDI4* Hamburg in May, were they obtained stable scores.

“Saumur was good, even though the piaffe/passage tours could have been more expressive in the ring”. The combination obtained 67,500% and 66,686% in GP and GP Special, placing her on the 14th and 9th spot.

The Grand Prix at the CDI4* Hamburg, later that month, was a success on many levels: Delphine and her Flemmingh- son obtained 68,300% and the tenth spot, a nice improvement on Saumur’s results, and in difficult circumstances: “the competition was very strong, and on top of that the ring was not easy: two combinations were disqualified for disobedience of the horse and one had to forfeit. But Wipsy behaved great!”

Delphine, who wants to obtain stable results before taking on the freestyle again, again chose to ride the Special in Hamburg. She obtained 68,800% and the sixth place, a nice progression for our combination!

Pupil Charlotte Bertels also continues doing a great job with Valentino van de Bosweg (Metall) at the junior level: she obtained the second place in the team competition of Schilde last weekend after a rather tense test and a score of 63%, but corrected this in the individual test, where she took the victory with 68,700%.
