Jochems’s victory opens Warsaw Jumping Day Two
Kevin Jochems has finished to top the standings of the young horse against the clock for the prize of Krajowy Ośrodek Wsparcia Rolnictwa. The victory was partnered by an eight-year-old mare Looks Good de Liebri Z, which – as he clearly assured – has become an excellent choice.
She is amazing and so brave. I feel so happy we have won today – commented the winner.
The competition seems well-balanced. A bit more demanding than yesterday’s, well-designed for young horses. The course designer does an excellent job, so it could not go anywhere wrong. – Jochems went on clearly to compliment Gregory Bodo, the French course designer, who will also be in charge of next year’s parkours at the Paris Olympics.
Poland’s Dawid Skiba and his eight-year-old gelding Kasper claimed second place.
The horse has done wonderfully. We have managed to finish second, and that always feels right. We had 12 obstacles and 15 jumps to tackle, which was not that easy to the young-age horses, but has been a great prologue to the next year’s more challenging competitions. – the Polish representative could not conceal his satisfaction.
Kasper is an interesting horse to work with. His capacities are unquestionably immense, though the young-hearted frivolity is still there. He will surely be even better with age. – he noted.
The podium was filled by Denmark’s Rikke Andersen and the seven-year-old Elle de Liebri Z.
