Last year he won three dressage classes and this year Dutch rider Patrick van der Meer took a good start again. He won the Prix St. Georges on Chinook, a 9 yr old KWPN stallion by Vivaldi with 70,578 %. Belgian Jorinde Verwimp finished second on her 13 yr old KWPn gelding Wendor with 69,763%.
Patrick van der Meer : “Chinook is a stallion but he is super nice. He is very easy and is very quiet here in the stables. Also in the warming up tent he was calm. When we entered the arena he was stresses but he kept on going well. The canter is certainly his strong point. I rode in Maastricht as a preparation for Mechelen. For 2017 I don’t have an exact timing, just keep on working quietly. The owners are giving me all the time, he is not for sale!”
