Brillante – mother of five – makes 5* debut in Zürich

Saturday, 28 January 2012

Harrie and Brillante in Zürich. Photo by Jenny Abrahamsson.Harrie Smolder’s ride Brillante (Heureka de Loge x Oberon du Moulin) has a background that is a little different than that of her fellow competitors. The 11 year old BWP-mare made her five star debut in Zürich after spending most of her life as a mother; Brillante has had five foals before she turned her head to the international showjumping circuit with Harrie – her last foal came in 2011 and was after Emerald. Brillante has been ridden between her five foals, but this was Harrie’s first show with the mare that he has only ridden for a week. Brillante jumped great and only had one fence down as well as two time penalties.
