There where great results for the VDL Stud in the first week of CSI Drachten.
After a nice career with James Billington our stallion Baltic VDL moved to the stables of Jur Vrieling last week. He took the stallion with him to CSI Drachten directly and ended with a fantastic performance in 2nd place in the Grand Prix at CSI Drachten. The jump-off can be seen at our Youtube channel:
The Grand Prix was won by an offspring of Cardento: Didam 2, ridden by Jennifer Pedersen. Cute S (Pessoa x Quite Easy) finished with rider Robin Ingvarsson in 6th place.
There was also succes for Jur Vrieling and Freeman. Freeman jumped two clear rounds on Friday and Saturday and on Friday he took the victory in the 1.30m class.
Comfortuna VDL, ridden by James Billington, placed 10th in a 1.40m class.
James Billington placed with Fancy Roos (Baltic x Goodtimes ) 7th in a 1.35m class. And in 10th place finished Foklahoma VDL (Nabab de Reve x Emilion), ridden by Marriet Smit- Hoekstra. Both mares are bred and owned by VDL Stud.
