A very good start in Wellington
The Winter Equistrian Festival in Florida has until now been a very good show for JR Sporthorses and the team.
After the horses arrived to the barn at Sunnyland Lane, they enjoyed a few days in the pasturen, relaxing and getting ready to compete at the Festival showground.
Only a few days later Kristian showed the horses for the first time.
He was very pleased with the commitment from all of them – and looked forward to the weeks ahead.
In week one we took home a few ribbons from placements but CHACOMO and Kristian Skovrider won the $2,500 1.35m Jumping. A good start in Wellington.
The week after, NOW AND EVER was a champ in the 140 cm class. He is so amazing. If you are in the marked for a specially good horse for the bigger classes – come try this one out.
Week 4 was again fantastic – with many placements and winnings.
OTIS BLUE – one of our favorites – won all the classes for 6-year old horses and was announced as CHAMPION OF THE WEEK.
That got us attention from visitors, other riders, customers and the magazines also focused on that performance, and wrote about it.
“So many people asked on this horse after this week, it’s amazing. We hope to find the perfect match for him, before the show is over”, Kristian Skovrider says.
Week 3, 4 and 5 were all great weeks. With lots of clear rounds and good, good riding.
Both Kristian and the girls on the team did a really, really good in almost every class.
“All our horse lived up to our expectation and we cant wait to see what happens now when they are settled and familiar with the surroundings” – and Kristian goes on “people are very interested in our horses, which is all from Europe, and we of course welcome everybody to the barn for a talk and a closer look”.
“They are all for sale”.
But we must emphasize Rie Roed and her horse “NEWCOMER”.
Rie who just turn 18 this week, has developed fantastic riding skills in the last six months. She is, like her sister Tit Bibi Roed, very talented and will do good in the years ahead.
She and NEWCOMER were placed 3rd in 145 cm and with that ride Rie stated that she deserves a place in the Danish Juniorrider group – and she got it confirmed on february 6th. FANTASTIC.
Kristian and SPECIAL DE GAMET have also done fantastic over here. With very tuff competitors he still is a superior horse, with skills, power and talent to be placed in the top every time.
CHACOMO showed his talent ones again. In week 5 he was also placed in 140 cm. A class with many other great riders/horses.
We are so happy for this horse and his results.
The Nation cup
After week 5 we had focus on the Juniors Nationscup at Deeridge in Wellington.
The danish team did good and half of the team was riding on horses from JR Sporthorses.
The team ended up as number 3.
Week 7 was a relaxing week for most of the horses, but again in week 8 they showed with excellence.
TUSCIA was clear in both 140 and 145 cm CSI**. We are amazed about this horse every time.
Maybe this horse can do more than we know?
In week 8 we in particular put our trust in OTIS BLUE and cross our fingers, that he will do the job.
He is peaking now and really ready. So watch him.
