Dinja van Liere and Judith Ribbels win Subli Competition in Wapenveld

July 10, 2023

On Saturday, July 8, the third competition of the Subli Competition for Young Dressage Horses was held in Wapenveld. The participating combinations rode very well. In the four year olds Dinja van Liere with On Air was clearly the best and the class for five year olds was won by Judith Ribbels and her mare Nanny Mc Phee.

Judges Jacques van der Harst and Dirk de Haas were very pleased with the combinations that competed in Wapenveld. Mr. Van der Harst said afterwards, "The riders rode very professionally. We were very impressed with the level of the horses and the way they were presented. We saw many horses with good movements. You can also clearly notice that the riders pay a lot of attention to the bridle and dare to ride more and more on length. I think that is a very positive development, especially with young horses. However, there is always room for improvement. Riders can sometimes let their young horses walk more on their own legs, with the nose out.

High points for Dinja van Liere with four-year-old On Air

With the winner of the four-year-olds, Dinja van Liere with On Air, that was certainly fat. This combination really stuck out. That is also reflected in our high score of 83.00. The horse walked nicely uphill, with sufficient length and good on the hind leg. Dinja knew how to present On Air very correctly and professionally. With Leonie Bos and her horse Origi van de Nethe, we saw especially a good canter and fine stride. This combination came second with a point total of 79.00. One point of interest is that we would have liked this horse to be presented a little more in length for better balance. But Origi van de Nethe is definitely a very good horse with a lot of potential."

Judith Ribbels and Nanny Mc Phee also successful at five-year-olds this season

Five combinations competed in the class for five-year-old dressage horses in Wapenveld. The highest score and the victory was for Judith Ribbels with her horse Nanny Mc Phee. Last year the combination competed in the Subli Competition for four-year-olds and finished fourth in the finals in Amsterdam. This season they are also in the top of the ranking in the five-year-olds. Judge Jacques van der Harst: "Judith certainly showed a good test with her horse. Especially the bends were very neat. Yet we noticed that there were also some moments of tension during the test. It would be nice if she could let her horse walk a bit more on her own legs so that the mare would use her back just a bit better."
