The FEI World Breeding Dressage Championships for Young Horses has wrapped up in Ermelo (the Netherlands) over the weekend, and as always there were some very talented young horses in action.

Australian riders Simone Pearce and Rebecca Rooke — who competed at the 2017 event — competed and achieved some fantastic results.

Full results can be found here.

5-year-old horses

In the Qualifier for 5-year-old horses, it was Andreas Helgstrand who came out on top with the big bay stallion Revolution. The pair scored 9.06 for the win. Helgstrand Dressage purchased Revolution in 2015 for 1.2 million euros.

Simone Pearce and Lindballe’s Just Perfect finished in 16th place on 8.30. The pair came out in the Small Final and improved their scored with a big 8.84 for third place, and also contested the Final — scoring 7.91 for 14th place.

Andreas and Revolution were clear winners in the Final, scoring 9.62 to beat Germany’s Matthias Alexander Rath and Destacado on 9.48.

Rebecca Rooke and Muschamp Royal Black scored 7.18 for 30th place in a field that included big-named riders such as Severo Jurado Lopez, Dorothee Schneider, Andreas Helgstrand and Adelinde Cornelissen; the pair also made an appearance at last year’s event.
