On Saturday the 17th of September we had a ‘boppeslach’ in Harich, the Friesian word for a bonanza, as speaker Henk Dijkstra called it. All ten mares that were presented to the Jury for Model declaration were indeed promoted to Model. One mare was granted another chance at the re-inspection because she just happened to be slightly unsound at the decisive moment: that is Veroniek W.E. Crown Sport AA (Reinder 452 x Jasper 366).
All about durability
All mares completed a round in trot before Head of Jury Sabien Zwaga announced the outcome. ‘It may look like it’s all about the trot, but that is definitely not the case. It is about durability, exterior and movement.’
