Hermès N.O.P. and Dinja van Liere win World Cup Freestyle
Our stallion Hermès N.O.P. together with his rider Dinja van Liere won their first dressage World Cup competition in Mechelen with a wonderful score of 85.815%. The five TeamNL amazons dominated the competition in the Neckerhal in places 1, 2, 4, 6, and 7. The Dutch amazons showed their business cards in the FEI World Cup competition in Mechelen. The largest indoor competition between Antwerp and Brussels has World Cups on the program in three disciplines. In the first the riders of TeamNL dominated with Dinja van Liere in the lead. The number three of the World Cup last summer rode a very fine test with a well-concentrated and diligent Hermès N.O.P. (Easy Game out of mare Bukkie, keur pref perst EPTM-dres of sire Flemmingh, breeder G. Gijsbers from Loosbroek). The ten-year-old stallion impressed again, beautiful small pirouttes, dead straight changes, and a piaffe & passage in which Hermès N.O.P. really excels. They also received several nines and tens for this. In addition, Hermès N.O.P. is one of the few Grand Prix dressage horses with a very good collected and extended walk. The five judges, with no Dutch jury this time, were almost unanimous and awarded the duo with the victory.
