Quotes after the Championship final for 6-year-old horses

Sunday, 30 September 2012

The winner Dayro Arroyave about his winning ride and himself; “The horse was known to be difficult and several riders have been falling off him, but I have had him in five or six months now and I really like him. He has qualities, but he is a stallion and likes to play around a bit. I work for several different owners in Belgium and ride about 30 different young horses every week.”

Runner up, Charlotte Betterndorf; “ I am working in Germany near the Luxembourg border. Goya van de Begijnakker is a great horse. When I got him he was quite green and difficult but he has developed so fast. He jumped fantastic today and is so nice to ride. He is one of the nicest horse I have ever had.”

Number three Marion Modolo Zanotelli; “I work for Ashford farm in Belgium and I used to ride for Ludo. We bought this mare after the Sunshine Tour and she was just broken in October last year. She has had a few foals and we actually bought one of them without seeing it just because it was from her. The feeling when you jump her is unbelievable.”
