Patrick van der Meer was dominant in the dressage in Mechelen with two victories in the small tour (Prix St. Georges) and Free Style Intermediate I) and one in the big tour (Grand Prix). In the Freestyle Grand Prix Jorinde Verwimp was the best.
Patrick:"With three wins I can only be super happy. My two horses President's First Apple and Zippo went very well. President's First Apple is only seven and it was difficult to ride a Freestyle which wasn't made for him. I had to ride with the break on to stay together with the music. With Zippo I had some minor confusions in the Freestyle but I was most happy with my score in the Grand Prix, which allows me to stay in the Dutch "A-Kader"
Jorinde Verwimp:"I had much more control than yesterday in the Grand Prix and I'm delighted with my victory in the Freestyle. Tiamo gave me a great feeling. Next year my aim is the World Equestrian Games in Tryon and of course I would love ro ride in Mechelen. Tiamo will be 18 and it would be a great end of his sportq career."
