Dutch announce Young Rider and Junior teams

The Dutch team has announced the combinations who will compete at this year’s European Eventing Championships for Junior and Young Riders at Millstreet in July. 

Jan van Beek has chosen ten riders to travel to the championships, including British-based young rider Janou Bleekman. 

“We just had a very nice Dutch championship in Renswoude. There was a beautiful cross and selective jumping course, with time jumping too tight. That was a good preparation for the European Championships where you can expect that too. In Ireland, I definitely expect a big course. I’ve selected combinations that I expect to deliver the best performance under those conditions. With these teams I go for the best possible team result. ”

Young Riders
Janou Bleekman – Granntevka Prince
Janneke Boonzaaijer – Campbelle WS
Gerdine Frens – Wishfull Thinking
Claire van Riel – Voulez Vous
Aliene Ruyter – Bomba 

Junioren
Levi Driessen – Lord Ricello
Nina de Haas – Cocu
Maartje van Riel – Eppo
Thierry van Reine – Piet
Bjinse Venderbosch – Lord Mayor

Van Beek will later announce which four combinations make up the team and who will compete as an individual.
