More than two years after his last official competition – in the Small Tour – Govenor has made a great come-back in the ring. Adelinde Cornelissen started him in Opglabbeek in the Grand Prix and on that debut Governor achieved a wonderful percentage of 74,978. With this result he came fourth behind our GLOCK’s Dream Boy N.O.P. who was placed third with 75.065%. We are proud of Governor, who once again showed that he belongs to the very best horses in the world.
“I knew what he showed at home, but we hadn’t been to a show for over two years either. Of course he already has a lot of ring experience and he has seen a lot over the last years. That is why I already know that he is very down to earth, but of course he still has to do it ”, Adelinde says afterwards. “The goal was therefore now to set up a flawless test, which was successful. There is still a lot of room for improvement as I have not taken any further risks. He has a lot of potential and future in him. He is also good at everything and has no weaknesses, he is also super handsome. The reactions were also very positive. People said it looked very harmonious and so easy and natural and I am really happy with that. ”
In his first Grand Prix Special, Governor and Adelinde finished ninth a day later with a very good percentage of 70,426. “Too many mistakes today … no excuse, but can be explained: I had fully focused on the Grand Prix and therefore never continued the Special”, Adelinde wrote on her Facebook page. “Governor can’t help it. He was really confused for a moment, did not know what was expected of him. So for the next few weeks, also practice the Special at home. CDI Exloo in two weeks. ”
