FEI World Breeding Jumping Championships 2016

"With such a good horse it makes life a little bit easier," said Willem Greve after winning gold at the FEI World Breeding Jumping Championships for 5-year-old horses with Garant (Warrant x Verdi TN). All photos (c) Jenny Abrahamsson.

Willem Greve did a jump-off out of the text books that really impressed, but it was no less impressive that the only 16-year-old Michael Pender took both silver and bronze on Irish horses bred by the Hughes-family.

Fourth place went to Jil Verheij and the fantastic Agana van het Gerendal Z (Aganix du Seigneur x Topas) bred by her father Ben Verheij.

There were no less than three Diamant de Semilly-offspring in the Top 14, the best was Le Diamant Horta seen under Walter Lelie. Le Diamant Horta is a full sister to Edwina Tops-Alexander's former ride Erenice Horta.

Darragh Ryan was lightening fast on the Irish bred Lackamore Storm (Kroongraf x Indoctro), but a pole fell and the pair dropped down to 9th.

10th place went to a happy Jaime Gabarron Jimenez with Zarina de Vidau, also a mare by Diamant de Semilly.

This does not happen all that often: Michael Pender had to bring two horses to the prize giving!

But, that is what happens when you fly around the jump-off with both horses. Here with Z Seven Caretina (Coltaire Z x Caretino)...

... and Z Seven Canya Dance (Can Ya Makan x Cavalier Royale).

A happy team, that had all reason to be proud of two medals!

“To win a medal here with a young horse that you own and produced yourself, well it makes me really proud," said Willem Greve about his gold on Garant.
