NICOLE & EELTSJE F. – Man, Are They Ever Kickin’ Butt!

Posted on August 27, 2009 by Paula

The 2009 dressage show season has thus far, again been one of tremendous success for our wonderful team of Nicole Gluesenkamp and Eeltsje F.!   Currently, our tremendous pair are UNDEFEATED!

As many of you may know, we were not allowed to compete in the 2009 Developing Horse Championships due to a rule change disallowing foreign riders and since our beautiful Nicole is German, we were ruled ineligible.  It was such a disappointment for us, but that only meant we would have to make our mark at the FEI Levels of Open Dressage competition this year and do our best to qualify for the USDF Regional Championships…and as you can see, OUR DUO IS KICKING BUTT! :-)

Nicole and BobThey began this season competing at Prix St. Georges level and they were FEI high score all three days!  Even beating out an ex-Grand Prix horse that used to belong to 2009 World Cup Dressage Champion, Steffan Peters with a score of 73.1%!  Bob was just Amazing.  He is qualified for the USDF Regional Champs at PSG.  At this rate he will be really high in the national PSG standings, for all horses, not just Friesians!

After that competition, Nicole and Bob moved up to Intermediare I and per Nicole, Bob has been the Star of every show!  Their last show was Dressage in the Rockies with 3 first places over three competition days.  The first day was 68.9%, second day 70% and the third and final day, 71%.  They just get better and better!

Needless to say, we are so very proud of our dynamic duo and please follow both Wyning Edge Friesians and Westmanton Stables on Facebook!

Hugs to all our supporters – we are most grateful to every single one of you for your support and encouragement!
