Athenaeum presents an academy for promising young riders

E-mail Print PDF

riders_academyThe young Riders Academy is a new program conceived for talented young show jumpers, under the patronage of the European Equestrian Federation (EEF), with the cooperation of the International Jumping Riders Club (IJRC) and the support of Rolex.


Athenaeum is a non-profit association founded by a group of professionals with a passion for horses. The project is the result of a complex reasoning: the world of sports is evolving fast and athletes must become managers of themselves to achieve their ambitions. The equestrian sport, for reasons related to its nature, has lagged a lot behind the others.

Visiting Stal de Sjiem in images - part one

WoSJ Exclusive; Up and down with Jeroen Dubbeldam

E-mail Print PDF

_K7X2422Jeroen Dubbeldam pictured at home with the horse that gave him the first big up of his career: De Sjiem - the 2000 Olympic gold medallist who now enjoys his retirement. All photos by Jenny Abrahamsson.If there is one rider in the world that knows about the ups and downs of showjumping, it is Jeroen Dubbeldam. Only 27 years old, he won Olympic gold in Sydney on De Sjiem – without doubt the biggest up of his career, and then he went on to win the Grand Prix of Aachen the following year also riding the legendary De Sjiem. Then followed a few quiet years as De Sjiem was retired – before the Dutch rider bounced back to claim team gold at the World Equestrian Games in Aachen in 2006 riding the very aptly named Up and Down. Another few quiet years followed, before Jeroen came back again – and with full force. This time aboard Simon. Winning the CN International Grand Prix on Simon in 2010, and then ending third in the 2011 World Cup Final – contributed to Simon being the best ranked horse in the world in the autumn of 2011.


And it also contributed to the next big down for Dubbeldam. In November 2011, Simon was sold and Dubbeldam's dreams of going to the Olympics in London were shattered. But as always, Jeroen bounced back – now on Utascha SFN. Well, as the circle of Jeroen's life goes, Utascha was sold at the end of 2013 – but with the next super star up his sleeve, Zenith SFN, Dubbeldam really doesn't look all that worried as we meet him at home in Weerselo.
