On July 21st Magdeburg and Klein Meckelsen were the inspection venues in Germany. The organising committee of Klein Meckelsen made it a day for all the family with various activities such as a bouncy castle for kids, so it´s a popular day with the visitors.

IBOP scores of 82 points

These surroundings were somewhat awe-inspiring for some horses. ‘The horses in the IBOP tests in particular were quite a handful for their riders,’ Jury member Jolanda Slootjes remarks. Those lady riders were the experienced Ingeborg Klooster and Lisanne Veenje. Klooster kept her cool and steered the 6-year-old Roswhita fan Ass Star (Andries 415), owned by Mrs A. Diers-Schaefer, to a top score of 82 points. ‘A beautiful horse,’ Jolanda Slootjes commented. ‘With so much breed expression and a strong topline. She showed a very good walk with good use of the body and presented a very strong round of trot.’ At the in-hand inspection Roswitha received an invitation for the Central Inspection which was promptly converted into a Crown declaration, also thanks to her excellent IBOP scores. With this brilliant performance the Title of Breeding Day Champion could not elude her.

Jasmin vom Schladitzer See: 9 for trot

In Magdeburg an exceptionally unique filly even received a 9 for her trot. Sebastian Schiller´s petite Jasmin vom Schladitzer See (Bikkel 470) left quite an impression on Jolanda Slootjes: ‘What an outstanding foal. A finely chiselled head, lovely legwork with an easy walk and easy transitions in trot. A foal we really hope to see at the Central Inspection.’ The Breeding Day Champion Title went to the 5-year-old Trienke fan Lyts Grons Star (Epke 474), bred by Mrs J. Boonstra-Hijlkema and owned by Alexa Unger. ‘A mare with a fine, long and vertical neck and good movement. Her trot was slightly rushed which meant we couldn´t make her Preliminary Crown. We have advised the owners to enter her for an IBOP first.’
‘With eight new Stars, good foal categories and superbly-organised inspections my fellow Jury member Wieneke Blom and myself can look back on a top weekend,’ Jolanda Slootjes concludes.
