Genève in Paris
The Longines Masters in Paris hosted a one and two star competition together with the five star Masters and it were Christophe De Brabander and Genève de Muze (f. Vigo d’Arsouilles) that stole the show. On the first day they won a class and on the final day, they became fourth in the GP1*.
In the CSI2* there was a third place for Kebab van de Dorpshoeve (f. Nabab de Rêve) and Victoire Echelard. Tinka’s Hope (f. Tinka’s Boy), bred by Stal de Muze, became fifth in the same class ridden by Demi Van Grunsven. Finally, in the five star competition, Lorenzo De Luca and Evita van ‘t Zoggehof (f. Golden Hawk, ex-Figo de Muze) became fourth in the ‘Speed & Handiness’-class (1.50m).
Hocus Pocus de Muze (f. Tinka’s Boy) and Harrie Smolders confirmed their potential in Stockholm thanks to several placings in 1.40m-classes. However, it was Evelina Tovek who claimed the protagonist role in the GP. Riding Dalila de la Pomme (f. Taran de la Pomme), she eventually finished fourth.
Irish rider Eoin McMahon won a 1.50m-class in Polish Poznan with Nabab’s Atlanto (f. Nabab de Rêve). Nabab’s Atlanto is the full brother to our Cadeau de Muze. In the classes for young horses, Suzanne Tepper excelled with the young star VDL Latina van ‘t Merelsnest (f. Nabab de Rêve).
Felitia DH (f. Querlybet Hero) and Kathrin Müller showed the way in Lichtenvoorde with a fifth place in a 1.45m-class and a seventh spot in the GP. Gerben Morsink and Navarone Z (f. Nabab de Rêve) added a nice second spot in another 1.45m-class to that.
Another victory over 1.40m for Genesis van de Neerheide (f. Triomphe de Muze) and Spanish rider Xavier Cebria in Barcelona. Last but not least, Capiche ‘ter Elzen’ (f. Bamako de Muze) and Ecuadorian rider Diego Javier Vivero Viteri finished ninth in the GP of Balvanera.
