After his phenomenal year Harrie had just one final wish on his list, to win the World Cup qualifier in Mechelen for the first time, and so he did...

With his 2 superstar stallions Emerald and Don VHP Z enjoying their well deserved holidays, Harrie took the 13yo gelding Zinius (s. Nabab De Reve), who is in great form and clearly in a winning mood, to the final show of the year in Mechelen.

After a very difficult and tricky first round only 7 out of the 40 combinations were clear… Harrie and Zinius were 4th to go in the jump off, and they were not only super precise but also fast as lightning, and with their time of 38.19 seconds unbeatable for the other competitors…. Henrik Von Eckermann and Mary Lou 194 took the 2nd place in 38.74 sec, Lorenzo De Luca and Halifax Van Het Kluizenbos came in 3rd in 39.97 sec.

And so Harrie and Zinius complete another very successful show together, after they already took the 2nd place in the 1.50 class on Thursday.

Jos and his 10yo stallion Herald Van’t Ruytershof (Lord Z x Diamant De Semilly) took a nice 6th place in the Sires Of The World on Wednesday.
