Although no longer working for Dubbeldam, his former boss is now trying to help Sleiderink to find a new job. "I don't want to make any hasty decisions, I don't know what I want yet and will first take the time to think about it properly," Sjaak says.

The 25 year old Irish rider has for the three last years been working for Carl Hanley, at his yard in Ostercappeln, Germany. Two weeks ago, Duffy moved himself 150 km to Allen's stable in Hünxe. "I had the time of my life at Carl and Nadja's yard, and I learned so much there – but I felt it was time to go a bit more independent which I have the possibility to now," Duffy explains. "I will be based here at Bertram's to work with him and for him – sharing the riding on the younger horses with Bertram himself, but I will also have the opportunity to ride for other owners alongside."
