De Paardenkrant-Horses.nl Prize, the Grand Prix for U25 riders at Jumping de Achterhoek, was incredible exciting! The 16-yr-old Lars Kersten won the class with the 8-yr-old Dobbey (Zirocco Blue) after a thrilling jump-off. Outsider Khaled Abdulrahman Almobty was incredible fast with his little, incredible brave mare Dona Evita (Darco), but the strides of Dobbey were bigger. In this 1.45m final Kim Hoogenraat finished 3rd and 8th with the very promising horses Rubio Monocoat Electric (Ukato) and Donatella l’Espoir (Quasimodo Z). Kars Bonhof finished 4th with his own top talent Cupidor (Lupicor), followed by Jesper Romp with another top horse Happy (Lux Z).
The standard in this class was incredible high and promising for the future!
