Wins for Bart Veeze and Aniek de Laat at Subli Competition Exloo

June 28, 2023

On Sunday, June 25, the second competition of the Subli Competition for Young Dressage Horses was on the program at Equestrian Center Exloo. During this sun-drenched day the riders managed to keep their cool and put down neat performances. In the five-year-olds Bart Veeze with Nero clearly left his calling card by winning the class with a top score of 92.00. In the four-year-olds Aniek de Laat was the best with her horse Oostrade.

Winning combination Subli Competition 2022 successful again

In both the class for four-year-old and five-year-old dressage horses, the judges were able to give nice points to the participating combinations. However, there was one combination that stood out this Sunday afternoon. Earlier this year Bart Veeze and Nero won the Subli Competition in the four-year-olds during Jumping Amsterdam. This year the successful combination competes again in the Subli Competition and this time in the five-year-olds. During their first competition competition this season they immediately managed to achieve a top score.

Bart says: "I am very satisfied with the test we were able to show. With Nero I am also in the selection process for the World Championship for Young Dressage Horses and after the previous selection competition we got some extra tips during a short training session. This Subli Competition was a good opportunity to work with that. I could ride him a little looser now. Even with the warm weather he was still super fit. At the end of the test he still had enough energy left. I think I suffered more from the heat than he did," Bart says with a laugh.

He continued: "Nero always runs through the test very easily. He is incredibly 'steady' and got high points for his gaits again this competition. For the walk even a ten and nines for the trot and canter. My goal is definitely to qualify for the semifinals again for this season of the Subli Competition, but I don't know exactly what the schedule will look like yet. First let's see how the World Cup selection process goes."

Other podium finishes for Jill Borgers and Aniek de Laat

Behind Bart Veeze and Nero, Jill Bogers and the stallion Number Two finished in a nice second place. Their neat and solid test was rewarded with an overall score of 78.40. Right behind, Aniek de Laat finished in third place who saddled her five-year-old Newton M and received a score of 77.40 from the judges.
