Eric and Cannelina. Photo by Jenny Abrahamsson.Fathers and sons are competing alongside each other at Jumping Indoor Maastricht this weekend, and they have so far been well represented in the top of the classes.

The first 4* class of the day – a 1.40 speed class – belonged to Holland, and was won by Piet Raijmakers Jr on Van Schijndels Chanelly (Contender x Bachus). Leopold van Asten was runner-up, while Eric and Maikel van der Vleuten ended up in third and fourth on VDL Groep Cannelina (Carthago x Sir Shostakovich) and VDL Groep Veumonia (Numero Uno x Joost). Ludo and Nicola Philippaerts also competed alongside each other as well as two representatives from the Whitaker-dynasty; John and Robert.

Pedro Veniss grabbed the first prize and 2000 Euro in the 1.45 class on the nine year old mare Umatine (Andiamo x Voltaire). Eric van der Vleuten was in the money again, this time taking the second place on VDL Groep Kaid (Brett Saint Clair x Royal Ardent). John Whitaker was fifth on the promising Arko-stallion Argento – who has been doing very well on British soil over the past years. The “kids” were evenly spread around; Vincent Voorn 7th, Nicola Philippaerts 16th with four faults and Robert Whitaker 45th with twelve faults on the stallion with the amusing name USA Today.

The last class of the day is still on in Maastricht, and can be followed by live scoring on

Kevin Staut on Zeta de Hus and Patrice Delaveau on Ornella Mail were second and third. The German Masters starts later tonight, and consist of some very good riders, see
