After competing at the international level for many years, the 14-year-old Very Nice (Cantos x Candillo) will retire from the top sport. Ridden by Dutch rider Timothy Hendrix, Very Nice competed up to five-star level and represented the Netherlands in the Furusiyya FEI Nations Cups in Hickstead in 2013 and in La Baule in 2014.

With Timothy Hendrix, Very Nice won the Grand Prix competitions of Opglabbeek, Roosendaal and Neeroeteren, along with many other international victories. “I have ridden Very Nice for eight years and he has been an amazing horse to me. Thanks to him, I competed at the highest level and the greatest shows in the world”, Tim Hendrix says about Very Nice. “Stal Hendrix will remain the owner of Very Nice, but we will give a younger, talented rider the chance to learn as much from Very Nice as I have done over the past years. He will enjoy his life as a teacher and he will never have to jump the biggest classes again and he will spend more time in the field!”
