Annemijn Boogaard and Febe van Zwambagt take profit in Subli Competition Boxtel

July 18, 2023

The fourth competition of the Subli Competition for Young Dressage Horses took place Sunday, July 16 at riding club Klavertje Vier in Boxtel. The participating combinations scored high. In the four year olds the victory went to Annemijn Boogaard with her horse Oxxi Lena. The class for five-year-olds was won by Febe van Zwambagt and Newport.  

Both classes were judged in Boxtel by judges Dirk de Haas and Cindy Heijligers who were able to give high points to the different combinations. Judge Dirk de Haas says, "We saw a good group of horses in both the four-year-olds and five-year-olds, with a clear leading group.

Minimal difference between number one and two in the four-year-olds

In the four-year-olds, Annemijn with Boogaard with Oxxi Lena was rightfully the winner. Her horse showed the complete picture and was very nicely balanced for a four year old. Oxxi Lena went through the test with a very nice touch and nicely on her own legs. It was made difficult for this combination by number two Femke de Laat with Oromance. The difference between the two was very small. Oromance had a very appealing trot, but was sometimes still searching for balance. That just made the difference for the result."

All of them quality horses

In the class for five-year-old dressage horses, there was only a small field of competitors with six combinations but the level of performance was very high. Febe van Zwambagt with her horse Newport set the highest score of the day with a total of 88.240. Femke de Laat also presented her horse Network nicely in the ring. Their test was rewarded with a score of 84,840. Judge Dirk de Haas: "The group of five-year-olds may have been a bit small, but they were all quality horses. As judges we really enjoyed this class. Newport of Febe van Zwambagt was the most complete horse and won very deservedly. This horse has three very good gaits and even received a nine for the trot. The stallion was presented in a fine manner, nicely off the hand and remained well balanced throughout the test. We were also very pleased with Femke de Laat's stallion Network, who finished second. Femke presented Network very nicely and professionally. He only missed some power in the counter canter, but that is only a matter of time," Dirk concluded.
