Team Challenge: “High scores like these definitely give a great feeling for the rest of the season’

On Saturday morning Jumping Amsterdam started with the “Hoefslag Team Challenge” in which three junior teams had to compete against each other in the Freestyle to music. Each team consisted out of a Pony rider, a Junior and a Young Rider. Having shown three very strong performances, Micky Schelstraete riding Elin’s Noncisdador, Thalia Rockx riding Golden Dancer de la Fazenda and Febe van Zwambagt riding FS Las Vegas won the competition. The three competing combinations stayed ahead of the other combinations by a slight advantage of 0,042 points.

‘Sco’ and Micky going super!

The youngest competitor of the winning combination, Micky, entered first in the arena and set the bar with a percentage of 73,542. ‘It definitely went well. I am super happy with ‘Sco’, the young rider commented enthusiastically. ‘We had a minor flaw. He fell back into trot from canter whilst going for a flying change, but apart from that it went great. He was very good and relaxed. I was pretty nervous yesterday evening and this morning but thankfully this feeling eventually stopped when I entered the arena.’
