New combinations out and about at Jumping Indoor Maastricht
Tuesday, 18 November 2014
Some new combinations showed up at Jumping Indoor Maastricht this weekend – here are some of them, and let’s start with Lauren Hough and Street Hassle. This eight year old stallion has been competed by Paris Sellon during 2014, but made an appearance with Hough – who trains Sellon – this weekend. Street Hassle is by Quick Star x Laudanum.

Malou – previously seen under Meredith Michaels-Beerbaum – is now ridden by Angelica Augustsson, and this was their first international appearance together. Malou is now ten years old, and is by Maloubet de Pleville x Carthago. Willem Greve now rides the eight year old Girlpower 111. The mare by Darco x Chatman has up until October been competed by Abdel Said and Dominique Greeve. The lovely seven year old Crowntano Z has been with Judy Ann Melchior since August, but this was the first time we saw the two together at an international indoor event. Tobias Thoenes has previously competed the son of Crown Z x Caretano Z. The eight year old Conjurer has been with Jeroen Dubbeldam for quite some time, and before that with a long list of other riders. This was the first time we saw Dubbeldam on the Danish bred son of Coronado x Royal Z I though.Upgrade is a 13 year old stallion by Heartbreaker x Pilot, that now can be seen under John Whitaker. John took over the reins on Upgrade from Germany’s Caroline Müller in June, but this was only the fourth international appearance for the pair. Yuri Mansur recently took over the reins on Cornetto K. The lovely eight year old son of Cornet Obolensky x Calido is definetly one to look out for, and jumps amazing under the Brazilian rider. Up until September Cornetto K could be seen under Dominique Hendrickx.Fedor van de Doornakkers has already been out competing in Vilamoura with Johhny Pals this autumn, but this was the pair’s first big indoor show together. Fedor van de Doornakkers has previously been ridden by Edouard Mathe and Felix Schneider, and is a nine year old son of Querlybet Hero x Heartbreaker.
