PenelopeNayanaPenelope Leprevost and Nayana were by far the fastest in Thursday's biggest class in Antwerp. Photo by World of Showjumping.Penelope Leprevost and Nayana (Royal Feu x Narcos II) left their competitors behind in Thursday’s 1.50/1.55 class sponsored by CMB in Antwerp. The super stylish French rider came in about half-way in the sixteen rider jump-off and took the lead with one of her trademark fast yet beautiful rounds over the shortened track that counted seven fences and included a combination midway. Nobody managed to come near Penelope’s time tonight. Closest was last-to-go Marc Houtzager on Sterrehof’s Uppity (Guidam x Epilot) over two seconds behind on the clock. Third was home rider Pieter Devos on Dream of India Greenfield (Gem Of India x Night And Day) who did a great round.

BlassAlonso - a KWPN gelding born in 2005 by Concorde. We are getting closer to the day of the auction. All horses have developed very well during the last 4 weeks. Throughout the weeks before the auction our horses are continued to be trained for our clients so that they can participate in competitions immediately after the auction. That means, they participate in national and international competitions according to their age.


For instance, Big Star, Azura and Joselyn were successful in the CSI** Lanaken. Furthermore, Miami and Balista participated in youngster competitions with clear rounds. Barny was successful in youngster competitions. In Balve Dalero, Baloufina, Crescendo and Lightning were placed in youngster competitions as well. For instance, Lightning placed 4th in an elementary test. More outstanding results were reached at the competition in Eschweiler. Big Star won the qualification for 6-year-olds, placed sixth in the second qualification reached the 11th place in the final. A further international aspirant is Azura. Azura achieved three clear rounds and placed 6th in the final. We offer talented jumpers for the national and the international sport.

On his official Twitter account, Maher states: "We can confirm that my Olympic partner Tripple X III has been sold to Torrey Pines Stable. We wish them every success."


The 12 year old gelding by Namelus R x Cantango is home bred by Maher, and the British rider has brought him up to the highest level of the sport. In 2012 the pair was a part of the British team that won gold at the summer Olympics in London, and they were also on the bronze winning team at the Europeans in Madrid in 2011. Maher and Tripple X III have many big wins together, and last year they won the Longines King George V Gold Cup on home soil at Hickstead as well as the Grand Prix at London Olympia.

bloggWhat a fantastic weekend it has been! I expected Daniel and Cornet to do well, but I did not expect them to win the final! I was guessing someone like Christian Ahlmann, Marcus Ehning, Beezie Madden or Kent Farrington would win. So that it would end up being us was not in my thoughts at all when coming to Lyon.
