The juniors and the young riders where the first to jump an international class at Jumping Mechelen this year. In the afternoon, in the first class, a 1 m 30 Table A in two phases, 17 years old Marthe Heudens won on Best Mix Evana. For the big class, a 1 m 40 Table A against the clock, the best horses came into the main arena. Victory went to last year young rider Leonie Peeters on Indiana vh Kapelhof. No surprise because Indiana vh Kapelhof was Belgian as well as European champion with Gilles Thomas in 2016.
