The WoSJ expert commentator from the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games: Piet Raijmakers

E-mail Print PDF

PietDuring the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games, World of Showjumping will have Piet Raijmakers as our expert commentator. Piet Raijmakers has gold medals from the Olympic Games, the World Championships and the European Championships. This is what Raijmakers had to say after Sunday’s top four final in Caen:

 

“As I am Dutch I was of course shouting, screaming and dancing as Jeroen won!

 

It was a little bit as I said earlier on; Jeroen would have an advantage with his horse Zenith SFN. It was the least experienced of the four, very sensitive and proved to be quite difficult for two of the three other riders. Jeroen came well prepared in there, and this format speaks to his strong sides. When we had the Best of Champions with horse swapping in Aachen he won it four times. Jeroen stays calm, and uses his feeling on the horses. He just has everything a complete rider should have, and was in my opinion a very worthy World Champion.

_K7X2637This is what gold medallist Jeroen Dubbeldam, silver medallist Patrice Delaveau and bronze medallist Beezie Madden had to say following Sunday's exciting top four final in Normandy.

 

Jeroen Dubbeldam:

 

- On the pressure today:

"The pressure was on, and my own horse also put me under this pressure because he jumped a clear round with Patrice. But I must say, that clear round from Patrice with Zenith I was really happy about because this horse brought me so much this week and he really deserved to finish the tournament with a clear round. So I was very happy that he left this stadium with a clear, and was very proud of him."

That is what Jeroen Dubbeldam told World of Showjumping when we visited him in March this year. Today the Olympic gold medallist and team World Champion x 2 proved exactly how good he is at what he likes the best, when he won a very well deserved individual gold medal at the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games in Normandy. The Dutch rider has a reputation of being a true horseman, with a feeling for the horses that is hard to match – and this really showed in today's top four final as Jeroen rode clear on all his equine partners. It was a close call between him and France's very own Patrice Delaveau though, as only a tiny time penalty separated the two – with Patrice having to settle for the silver medal. Bronze went to America's Beezie Madden.
