Four of our Stephex riders have spent three weeks competing at the Mediterranean Equestrian Autumn Tour II – Oliva Nova. 33 of our top horses left the Stephex Stables to attend the show in Valencia, Spain and enjoy sunnier days. The long trip has definitely paid off with the outstanding results our riders and horses achieved.
We’d like to highlight one of our exceptional youngsters, the six years old gelding O’Balou van de Plataan from Balou du Rouet, as he finished the tour with nine out of nine clear rounds under the American rider Michael Hughes. We are also very proud of the young stallion Nector vd Bisschop who landed on 2nd place in the trophy of the 7 years old horses with Kendra Claricia Brinkop.
Kendra did not only succeed with her youngsters, but she was also placed second in the Grand Prix of the second week with Bellisima ter Wilgen Z right before Michael Hughes who finished third with the unbelievable stallion George Z.
During the third week, Emilie Conter took our breath away after winning the 140cm class on Thursday and then repeating her win on Sunday with Clochard her 12 years old stallion.
Congratulations to the equestrian team of Stephex for their magnificent results! Additionally, they will be participating in the upcoming show at the Mediterranean Equestrian Tour III from the 24th of November until the 6th of December. Fingers crossed!
