Micky Schelstraete has taken over the reins of the thirteen year old pony Wonderful Girl (Wimbledon x Dancer Boy) from family Baars with a view to sale. The mare was trained and released on competition by Daphne van Peperstraten and was sold to family Baars four years ago, after which daughter Shanna took a seat in the saddle.

With Van Peperstraten in the saddle, Wonderful Girl participated in the European championship in Aarhuis and won many international victories. After the sale four years ago, Wonderful Girl was injured and Baars was unable to release the mare for some time. Shanna switched to Don Camillo du Bois. At the start of last year, Shanna made a winning comeback with Wonderful Girl with scores of over 74% and 75%.
In the upcoming period Micky will take on the training of Wonderful Girl and she will also release the mare on competition.
