BD Abroad: Waregem CDI3*/CDIJY

The British contingent enjoyed success at Waregem CDI in Belgium last week (14 – 17 September 2017).

Rebecca Bell did herself proud winning both the Junior Team test with 72.568% and the Junior Freestyle test with 75.875% aboard her mum Caroline’s Nibeley Union Hit (pictured), a ten-year-old daughter of Nibeley Union Jack. The pair’s emotive Freestyle was executed with precision and style for a super international personal best of 75.876%.

Eighteen-year-old Rebecca, who was a member of the gold medal-winning British Pony team of 2015 where she also achieved Freestyle eighth, was thrilled with ‘Una’ on the mare’s first overseas CDI.

“On the way back from Dressuur Waregem after an amazing week,” said Rebecca on Facebook. “The showground was great with good surfaces and facilities and the organising committee was so lovely and always wanting to help - thank you for making us so welcome! Una was such a pro on her first trip abroad, taking everything in in her lovely considered way, and our results were above and beyond my expectations- 3 +70 scores culminating in 75.875% to win the Kür today! Hearing the national anthem played for this mare after all we've worked through to get here did bring on the emotions - but I promise I didn't cry!”

World Class Podium Potential rider Sarah Millis was happy with the performances of her two rides – the huge 11-year-old gelding Behroez (United x Gribaldi) and Hofjuwel, Katja Kuistila’s Hofrat-sired 12-year-old. Behroez, who’s affectionately known as ‘Boss’ was fourth in the PSG and second in the Inter I both with plus-71% scores, whilst Hofjuwel aka Hoff was sixth in the Grand Prix and third in the Special.

“I’m delighted with Boss,” smiled Sarah. “After a good result at Hickstead CDI I’m thrilled with his consistency and positive attitude at Waregem. He's growing in confidence each time and we’re very excited about the future. His pirouettes were high quality and for a big horse this is impressive. I’m now able to harness the power more efficiently and put it to good use.

“Hoff was very good In the Grand Prix but too many small errors were costly. The Grand Prix Special was a test of two parts, the trot work was very good but the canter programme was not so strong which was partly my fault. There’s some things to work on but overall I was very happy with him. When it all comes together it'll be great.”
