VDL stallions and offspring of VDL Stallions were super successful at the CSI 5* horseshow at Gothenburg in Sweden.
VDL Zirocco Blue N.O.P. and Jur Vrieling placed 4th in the World Cup class with a fantastic clear round in the jump-off. With this high-ranking they are now assured of participation in the World Cup final in Las Vegas in April this year.
Jur Vrieling made his debut with Arezzo VDL in Gothenburg , they competed 3 times in 1.45m classes. The first 2 classes they jumped without any faults except some timefaults, and in his 3rd class he jumped a clear round with finishing in 4th place.
Corporal VDL, ridden by Malin Baryard-Johnson, jumped also a clear round in this class and finished in 9th place. On Friday they placed 7th in a 1.40m class and on Sunday they finished again in 7th place.
Dallas VDL, ridden by Jur Vrieling, placed 5th in a 1.40m class for 7 year old jumpers.
And there were many offspring of VDL Stallions winning at Gothenburg:
Titanic VDL (Neckar x Lord), ridden by Stephanie Holmen, won the final of the Kraft Young Rider Cup (1.45m). In a 4th place finished Cardina (Cardento x Diamond), ridden by Filip Agren.
VDL Groep Eureka (Chin Chin x Quidam de Revel) won a 1.45m class against the clock with his rider Maikel van der Vleuten. Talina (Matterhorn x Heidelberg), ridden by Douglas Lindelow, placed 2nd in this class and was also the winner of a 1.45m class.
Warrior (Emilion x Renville), ridden by Jerome Hurel won a 1.40m class.
