TC Beau Deux, Presidents Avanti and Zorro became the winners of the incipient 2010 KNHS Subli Championships for young dressage horses in Ermelo, The Netherlands, on 27-28 December 2010. The 4-year old dressage horses appeared in one finals test, whereas the 5 and 6-year olds had to do a qualification round on the first day of the championship, followed by a decisive final round.
Geert-Jan Raateland dominated the 4-year old division aboard the dark bay Dutch warmblood mare TC Beau Deux (by Ravel x Gouverneur). The mare, who is owned by Raateland, Schotte and Coomans, scored the highest total of 79.00%. Miranda Rongen and the black Rhinelander stallion Sir Fashion (by Sir Donnerhall x Rosenkavalier) became the runners-up with 78,133%. Laurens van Lieren finished third on Presidents Bolero (by Uphill x Balzflug) with 72,867%.
Former Dutch Grand Prix team rider Van Lieren won the 5-year old division aboard the KWPN stallion Presidents Avanti (by United). In the FEI 5-year old young dressage horse test the combination scored an impressive 88,20% to claim the overall victory after also having dominated the first qualification round. Van Lieren continued his triumph by also finishing second with Presidents All Right (by Jazz x Royal Dance) with 84,40%. Jean-Rene Luijmes rode Aswin (by Sandreo x Jazz) to a third place with 82.00%.
Geert-Jan Raateland won the 6-year old class aboard Zorro (by Jazz x Contango) scored 83,60% but was only a fraction better than the Turkish born Ceylan Avinal on the bay Zygrande le Coupied (by Krack C x Ferro) with 83.00%. Margreet Prosman and the So What (by Sandro Hit x Donnerhall) ranked third with 80.00%
Bertus Wijnveen, director of Subli Horse Feed, was pleased with the Championship: "a good start is half the job. This year's competition is a stepping stone for a successful formula in the future. We'll continue next year with a few changes."
