On Friday the 25th of March the Horse and Wine Show in South Africa resulted in a Crown mare. Jury members Sabien Zwaga and Annemieke Elsinga rewarded Udine fan ‘t Hoogeland (Wybren 464 x Harmen 424) with 77 points for her IBOP. ‘A mare who demonstrated a satisfactory walk and in trot moved with a fast hind leg, stepping well forward under the body. In canter she should show more suppleness’, is how Sabien described Niekie Pienaar’s 8-year-old mare from Adelprag Stud. The mare was presented under saddle by lady rider Chere Burger. In her second presentation for promotion to Crown Udine was awarded a first premium during the in-hand inspection.

Impressive Durk

The judges also assessed stallion Durk fan de Marren Star AA (Eise 489 x Beart 411) to see if he might be a potential candidate for a stud license. ‘An impressive, longlined and correctly-built stallion with great movement’, Sabien explained. ‘He has a powerful, roomy walk and an uphill trot with lots of impulsion and fine use of the foreleg.’
