MonetaHIUBHSThe winners - Luca Maria Moneta and Connery. Photo Satu Pirinen.Friday's biggest class at the Helsinki International UB Horse Show was a tight affair. Out of 46 riders 20 managed to produce clear rounds, and the top four finished within 13 hundreths of a second. The fastest of them was Luca Maria Moneta from Italy with Connery (Cordobes II x Polydor).


"I am very pleased with my horse Connery. He has gotten older and knows his job better. Earlier he was too much in a hurry: if I let him go, he was too excited and not really careful with what he was doing. Now, he finally knows his job and fights for me against the fences. It's nice because I can let him do the job and it is very easy for me," Moneta said after his win.

Jos Lansink has a busy day when we arrive at his yard in Meeuwen, Belgium a Thursday afternoon. Still in his riding gear after numerous sessions on the horse back, he is now fully occupied with saying good bye to and welcoming clients, trying out possible new horses to add to his stables, helping out his riders as well as building jumps. Lansink – former World Champion, Olympic and European team gold medallist, as well as World Cup Champion – runs a big dealing yard and sports stable. There are over fifty horses in his barn, and three additional international riders next to Jos – nevertheless you cannot detect any stress in the stables. Perhaps it is due to the fact that most of the horses are turned out in the surrounding paddocks and fields unless they are busy being hacked out or flatted. Because as we are soon to discover as we sit talking on a cavaletti in the middle of Lansink's beautiful outdoor ring, Jos is all about the happiness of the horses.
