Pim Mulder won the CSI2* Grand Prix in Ermelo tonight with It’s Possible Srk (by Berlin). He remained clear over a height of 1.45m in a time of 37.86 seconds. Wilton Porter, Siebe Kramer and Remco Been claimed victories in the other categories on this final day of the first edition of CSI Ermelo.

Pim Mulder closed the end of the first edition of CSI Ermelo spectacularly as an ambassador of the event. Mulder says: I had to get started at the beginning of the week. Last week I was at the National Championships in Deurne with a number of horses and this week I had a new group of horses with me. Earlier in the day I already had a clear round in the CSI1* Grand Prix. Unfortunately I had a beam in the jump-off, but I had the fastest time. That would have been nice, I thought at the time, but to win the CSI2* Grand Prix for the first time is of course much nicer.’

Venom in the tail

The tension reached its peak when Mulder started last in the jump-off, leaving Jeroen Dubbeldam behind. Dubbeldam finished in second place with Trezeguet (by Turmalin) in a time of 39.51 seconds. Annelies Vorsselmans took third place with Ubrisco (by Uriko). The duo clocked a time of 39.90 seconds.

Wilton Porter wins CSI1* Grand Prix

The American rider Wilton Porter and Larderello (by Arezzo VDL) managed to win the CSI1* Grand Prix. Porter steered his horse to an unbeatable time of 31.70 seconds. After his victory, Porter spoke enthusiastically about his performance: “It was a very good week and this was of course a great highlight. I am very happy with my horse Larderello, he jumped really well.” Kars Bonhof finished in second place with his horse Mojo TN (Grandorado TN), who achieved a strong performance with a time of 32.51 seconds. Leon Thijssen took third place with Epic (by Billy Mexico), who recorded a time of 33.49 seconds on the scoreboard.

Siebe Kramer writes Medium Tour to his name

Siebe Kramer with Lola Bh (by Apower) won the CSI1* Medium Tour 1.25m with a time of 48.93 seconds. “It was a good round. Lola was very motivated and I was able to ride the test at a high pace, which is what she likes too,” Kramer said afterwards. Hilde Veenstra reached second place with Daniella (by Vaillant), with a time of 51.12 seconds. Third place was taken by the Irishman Conor Drain with Millstreet van de Kruishorst (by Cardento) with a time of 51.52 seconds.

Remco Been leads in 1.35m Small Tour

In the first test of the day, the CSI2* Small Tour 1.35m, Remco Been excelled with his horse Jasper (by Cidane) with an impressive time of 48.30 seconds, taking victory. “I started this week in the higher classes with Jasper and wanted to give another horse with less experience the opportunity for the CSI2* Grand Prix. I thought this test was a great opportunity to possibly take a prize home and if you win, that’s great,” Been said after his triumph. Liesje Vrolijk finished in second place with Mamalou Fairy (by Bubalu VDL) in a time of 49.25 seconds. Hilde Veenstra took third place with Infinity (by Eldorado vd Zeshoek TN).
