The CSI3* show in Geesteren was mostly a Dutch affair - at least result wise. Home rider Jur Vrieling took the win in the Grand Prix on Sunday after two fantastic clear rounds on VDL Zirocco Blue N.O.P. that impressed with his performances this weekend. Photos by World of Showjumping.
Another rider that showed brilliant form was Gert Jan Bruggink. The Dutch rider won the 1.45 and 1.50 class on Friday, was second in the 1.45 class on Saturday and ended 10th in the Grand Prix on Sunday.
Living legend John Whitaker was one of the foreign riders that managed to push ahead the Dutch on the result list. On Saturday he won the 1.45 class on Woulon L.
Home rider Gerco Schröder and Zamora were also on form. In the Grand Prix the pair had a single time fault that kept them away from the jump-off, putting them in 8th place.
Got to love this horse; Quality Time TN jumped a beautiful clear round in Saturday's Grand Prix qualifier, and was also supposed to jump the Grand Prix - but was, like many other horses, withdrawn by his rider due to the ground and weather conditions.
Some riders were captured from every angel!
Jos Verlooy had good reason to smile; the Belgian rider was second in Friday's 1.50 class.
One to watch! The only 17 year old Lisa Nooren impressed with her riding - here on Sabech d'Ha.
Marcus Ehning on the beautiful Singular LS La Silla takes a little break on the warm-up.
Another rider that managed to break in between all the Dutch success was Sweden's Alexander Zetterman who continues to impress with Cafino - the pair was third in the Grand Prix on Sunday.
Hold on Leopold! VDL Groep Beauty is still a little green, hence her flying jumps - but impressed with her performances. The eight year old mare by For Pleasure x Contender was second with Van Asten in Friday's 1.40 and third in Sunday's 1.40.
Robert Vos was another Dutch rider that took home a win, in Friday's 1.40 class on Carat.
Albert Zoer's eight year old Gigolo has a striking face, and also showed some serious jumping skills.
How happy home rider Gerben Morsink was when he went clear in the first round in the Grand Prix on Faithfull. The pair ended second with one of two double clear rounds.
