An unbelievable dominance for the offspring of Elvis Ter Putte at the CSIYH* in Valkenswaard, taking place from Monday until Wednesday. Melia de Regor and Gregory Wathelet won the class for seven-year-olds on Monday, just before Scott Brash on Hello Zachary, equally sired by Elvis Ter Putte. Bas Moerings and Hervesther claimed the sixth place. In fifth place in the class for six-year-olds, we found Marvin van den Nieuwenhuijzen riding Ikigai. This combination also finished seventh in the finals with a double clear round, finishing just ahead of Harrie Smolders and Nixon van ‘t Meulenhof (s. Denzel van ‘t Meulenhof).
Some more Elvis Ter Putte progeny dominated in Bonheiden, with Bunoit Moeskops and Memphis van ‘t Hulgenrode jumping some nice clear rounds in the classes for seven-year-olds, as did Kirsten Rombouts on Minerva de Kalvarie (s.

In the classes for five-year-olds, Caroline De Laet and Orelia van ‘t Edelweishof (s. Nabab de Rêve) realised a clear round, with Nistria Chianti Z (s. Nabab de Rêve) and Chloe Aston doing the same in the classes for six-year-olds.

Glock’s London) and Harm Lahde. David Will and Lucinde de Rêve (s. Malito de Rêve) placed themselves second in this class.
We started this overview with Elvis Ter Putte progeny and we also finish off with that. Mithras de Regor (s. Elvis Ter Putte) stole the show by finishing fifth in the STX Cyclus in Lier in the competition for seven-year-olds, ridden by Guy Beyers. In the provisional standings, this duo is still second. Next Funky de Muze (s. Elvis Ter Putte) and Katrijn Van Hoecke on their turn achieved a double clear in the competition for six-year-olds.
Karline De Brabander also contributed some clear rounds. She made it to the finish line without penalties on five-year-old Oilily de Muze (s. Vigo d’Arsouilles) and four-year-old Jessy-Belle de Muze (s. Denzel van ‘t Meulenhof), as did she with our four-your-old top talented stallions Pegasus van ‘t Ruytershof (s.
