VDL Groep Utascha SFN to Dubbeldam

Friday, 14 October 2011

Eric and Utascha in Madrid. Photo by Jenny Abrahamsson.VDL Groep Utascha SFN (Lux Z x Indoctro) will most probably be seen under Jeroen Dubbeldam in the future. The KWPN-mare has up until the Europeans been ridden by Eric van der Vleuten, who has been very successful with Utascha – they were key players on the Dutch team in the Top League this season.

Springpaarden Fonds Nederland (SFN) has announced that it has been decided that Utascha and Eric will go their separate ways. The SFN expresses gratitude towards Eric for the job that he has done with the ten year old mare. The mare has been sent to Jeroen Dubbeldam who will ride the mare until it has been finally decided who the new rider will be. It is a faire chance that the mare might stay with Dubbeldam, but this is not yet confirmed.

Eric has confirmed to WoSJ that he will no longer ride Utascha.
