Fiontini - now a double world champion

31-07-2016 18:59, af Thomas Bach Jensen

She received a 10 for perspective: Fiontini, the daughter of Fassbinder that was already crowned world champion in the previous edition

Also this year, the bay Danish Warmblood mare (dam’s sire Romanov) made a big impression with her incredible elasticity and balance. The by Hanne Lund and Hendrik Hansen bred eye-catcher Fiontini was presented in a fantastic manner by her rider Severo Jesus Jurado Lopez. The pair was the audience’s ultimate favourite. After her performance the applause kept on going, signalling how much the audience had enjoyed this marvellous talent for the future.

Maria Colliander, chairman of the judges: “The walk was a highlight, so relaxed in a wonderful rhythm. What was interesting was how well the horse collected in the medium-walk and before the pirouettes; a 9.8. The horse has lovely clear ground cover in the trot, although at times Severo must be careful that it will not become a passage. But I must mention that the extension totally blew us away. The canter has such an active hind leg and it so well placed under the body. Wonderful propulsion with a great extension and he came back so well: a 9.7. On the submission there is still room for improvement, the natural bending could be better and the one-change was not so fluent as the mare anticipated a bit, which caused tension: 8.9. What a talent for the future, she receives a 10 for the perspective.” This brought the total to a magnificent 95.80%.

Severo Jesus Jurado Lopez, that will board the plane to the Olympics in Rio tomorrow, was proud of his mare. “She gives you a fantastic feeling and is always focused. I am extremely happy that she could show her qualities here, so everyone could see her talent. She deserves that!”

The silver was awarded to the KWPN-approved stallion Five Star, that also placed second in the qualification. The by P.G and A.S.M. Bijvelds bred work-willing stallion performed a fantastic test with Kirsten Brouwer for which they received a 9 for the perspective, the good, pure walk and the incredible uphill canter. Magnificent marks for the son of Amazing Star (dam’s sire Jazz), that was skilfully presented by Kirsten Brouwer and was bestowed with an 8.7 for the trot and an 8.8 for the submission (89%). Five Star is owned by T. Wilaras. Last year the Dutch rider won bronze in Verden with Eyecatcher, now she obtained the silver in Ermelo with Five Star.

“This is very special, in front of my home crowd. Five Star is amazing: he always does the best he can! I am thrilled with out medal and I hope to ride him here in the seven-year-old class next year.”The bronze medal went to the Oldenburg-approved stallion Sir Ollie (Sir Donnerhall x Florestan I), his elegant test was rewarded with 87.60%. Last year the stallion placed seventh at the five-year-olds, now he accomplished a place on the stage with his elasticity and nice contact. He scored high on the basis gaits, his good rhythmic trot earned an 8.5. “In the walk the horse was overtracking very well and displayed clear ground cover and shoulder freedom, he was truly marching to the bridle: an 8.8. The canter had a lovely mechanic and he worked beautifully through the body; an 8.9. Thanks to the fluent transitions and lovely contact and frame he receives an 8.7 for submission.” Adding up the 8.9 for perspective, resulted in the bronze medal for Sir Ollie. “I caused the mistake in the changes,” says his rider. “But he was very focused and gave me an incredible feeling.”

The judges were satisfied about the quality of the dressage horses in the final. Maria Colliander: “We have seen beautiful rides and lots of quality horses. But I also want to compliment the riders with their pleasant presentation of the horses. The final was exciting right till the end, but the top-three was clearly ahead of the others. Truly promising horses for the future.”
