Last Wednesday, June 7th, Luc van Moorsel from Equine MERC visited the wonderful new equestrian business Stoeterij VZ Hackerom. Antoon Koenen’s entirely new-built equine complex was captured on photographs that day. Not only the facilities but also the various horses, from foals to broodmares and competition horses, were all photographed.
Today we took part in the IBOP in Asten with our mare G-Star V.Z. She managed to achieve an excellent score; a 10 for her trot!
The reserve champion of last year’s National Mare Inspection, G-Star V.Z. was awarded a superb score today (Tango out of Raisa elite by Welt Hit II, breeder/owner A. Koenen in Erp); she received a 10 for her trot! “We debated together whether to give a 10 or a 9.5? But this is truly a rarity when you see a horse trot like that”, according to Hoefs. “She has a superb way of trotting with a fantastic use of the front leg and a very strong hind leg which comes under well. If you wanted to criticise something at all then she could tilt her pelvis a fraction more, but that is absolutely minimal. The walk is clear-cut but her stride could be better. The canter has a good technique but could be more relaxed.” In total she was awarded 84.5 points. Her dam produced a ZZ-Light horse by Florett As and a Z2 horse by San Remo.
