Sabine (by Pascal) the former police horse of HF Cnossen was named National Champion last Saturday at the National Inspection of Vereniging Het Groninger Paard in Tolbert. The nickname for Foals went to Alexandra van de Passop (Brieu) of Ai Evenhuis.

Nine fillies received the first premium, the best stallion and foal, and then competed for the title of National Foal Champion. The best colt of the day was the Ewout (Elbo x Extase) of the breeder H. Tanis, who was moving with a large wagon. Alexandra van de Passop took the lead among foals. This skilled comb. Van de Veen was born from the Persians Brigitta (by Ixtas). She has given herself a lot of cuteness and softness and she combines this with a good kind. She also showed her qualities in losing the championship and winning the title.

Oldest Mares Book of Horses

Genealogical book mares can obtain an asterisk or temporary model at various regional inspections. The maximum Star amount is 7 per genre and the total is 70 points. For the model, mares should score 8 in genre and 75 points in total. In order to make the predicate final, the mares have to get the necessary points again in the national inspection.

Elseina van Neuland in the lead

Eight mares participated in the well-stocked group of four to seven years of mares. The first to line up was today’s Central District Champion: Elsiena van Nieuwland (Ede x Ramires) of B. Ketelaar. This fine type of mare put on a very impressive show and proclaimed himself a model. There was also the model predicate for Marre’s Lasallia (Lenard x Mats) by TR Zwarteveen. The other six mares have been upgraded to a star mares.

The perfect picture

Among the mares aged eight years and older, the Sabine (Bascal x Hanno) mares of the De Bruijn family of Wenum Wiesel and owned by HF Cnossen made a great impression. This mare is pretty close to picture-perfect in the situation and got a nine for writing. Sabine has been employed by the Mounted Police in recent years and is now available to breed again. She already became the North Division Champion earlier this season and also received the Model Kickstand award.

Rosetta (Macho Polo x Herbert) competed in Steyr’s hips to increase the score. This mare from LJ Biewenga-De Grijp passed through the track with a lot of courage and was allowed to leave the track again as a model mare.

The jury chooses Farida

Two models of mares presented themselves in the appropriate department, Farida (Meinart x Farao) from M. Kamies and Sentana (Geronimo x Vagand) from Van Huis fam. These mares achieved the highest index of conformation and locomotion and are therefore no longer present. Only a representative is chosen by the jury of the leading group for today’s championship. Glory to Unique this time. Only crosses in the genealogical book can get the predicate, and P. Eerhart’s Ewout van de Pasop (Elgar x Brigitta v. Extase) successfully passes this on with flying colors. At the age of three, he’s already a full horse.

Brigitta Preference Form

The brood of Brigitta (by Xstas) swept away by Frank and Cesca van der Veen was remarkably high on Saturday. Not only did she sign motherhood heroine Alexandra van de Pasup, she also knocked out Birgitta best eunuch Iwott van de Pasup and saddle class winner Sandra van de Pasup (by Machu Polo). Model and former National Champion Sandra van de Pasop is owned by AD Elema-van der Veen and has been meticulously presented by daughter Alice. This Sandra is also the full sister of the certified stallion Maestro Polo, who was also represented by the first two distinguished foals.

Today’s Championship

The first-place animals from all categories are invited to form the Leading Pool for today’s public tournament. This resulted in a beautiful and uniform group of horses. The beautiful type, combined with the constant display, was the ultimate deciding factor for the jury to declare the mare Sabine a national champion.

Medal of Honor Saint Rare Pet Breeds

After several years of absence, this year’s Rare Pet Breeds Foundation’s Medal of Honor was awarded to an enthusiast who meant so much to the association and the Groninger breed. This medal went to Robert and Trudy Camps of Stal Klein Klooster of Groningen.
