Woodland’s International is a very lucky team… Every week we see amazing results of our references which brings us great pride, joy and enthusiasm!
March started already amazing with Tiffany Foster and Caipiranja (Taran de la Pomme) jumping into a second place in the WEF Grand Prix! Their good result was followed by Kastaro van het Eelshof (Diarado), who also in Wellington, obtained a 10th place in the 1m40 class under the saddle of Melissandre Lincourt. Also in the United States, Laura Hite and Calypso van de Zuuthoeve (Tangelo van de Zuuthoeve) jumped into a 3rd place in the $70,000 Purina Grand Prix followed by a 7th place in the CSI3* 1m45 class of San Juan Capistrano.
For Julien Massard and Concara LVP Z (Cancara Z) March was a month full of good results… The duo obtained a 6th place in the 1m35 class at CSI Nice, followed by a 5th and a 10th place in the 1m30 class of CSI Cagnes-sur-Mer. As icing on the cake, they even achieved 4th place in the Grand Prix!
In Oliva, Shannon Meinert Ketterle was clearing in good shape. With Guust van den Katten Eeck (I am Moerhoeve's Star) she achieved a second place in the class for 7-year-old horses while she even finished first with Nippon vd Elzenakker (Elvis ter Putte) in the class for 6-year-old horses! A week earlier, Nippon and Shannon already obtained two times a first and a 7th place, so we are very excited about this combination in the future.
Clint Donaldson Z (Clintissimo Z) and Mariko Kato also did an excellent job: in Dortmund they achieved a 4th, 5th and 6th place in the 1m40 classes! In addition, Dedicasse du Bois de Buisseret (Ugano Sitte) and Kathrin Stolmeijer also felt good in Dortmund. They gained an 8th place in the CSI4* 1m45 class, followed by an 8th place during CSI2* Lier. Qatar Donaldson Z (Quidam de Revel) was also in great form. Under the saddle of Charlie Sue Fani, this combination noted a 1st, 2nd and 5th place during the first week of CSI Arezzo! They even continued their tour with a 2nd and 5th place. Also for Patrick Lemmen and Giruso H (Indoctro) there was a victory in the 1m35 class at CSI2* Gorla Minore!
Furthermore also Kadaffi van Orti (Diamant de Semilly) and Niels Bruynseels performed outstanding. They finished second in the Longines Ranking Class on Saturday, followed by a second place in the CSI2* Grand Prix with only 1 hundredth of a second difference from the leader!
In Bonheiden, Never Alone van ‘t Heike (Indoctro) and Julie De Pelsmaeker showed that they are a match made in heaven! Julie and the beautiful chestnut returned home with one victory, a fifth and a sixth place in the classes for 6-year-old horses.
