New talent for Axel Verlooy

Euro Horse’s Axel Verlooy has a new talent in his stables, the five-year-old BWP mare Malle Babbe van ’t Kieveld (by Emerald), last year’s four-year-old Belgian Champion under Tim van den Broeck. As a two-year-old, the Emerald-daughter also stood out in the free jumping in Mechelen.

Toulini Olympic to Jan Tops

Jan Tops also invested in young talent. He purchased the five-year-old mare Toulini Olympic from Danish Absolute Horses. The Toulouse daughter is out of a old friend of Tops: Vienna Olympic, the Grand Prix mare first rode to fame by his wife Edwina and later by Qatar’s Sheikh Ali Bin Khalid Al Thani. The Holstein Cassini I daughter Vienna Olympic started her career under Edwina Tops in 2012, in 2013 Sheikh Al Thani took over the reins until the middle of last year, with the pairs’ highlight coming at the WEG in Caen in 2014. Toulini Olympic already competed at some smaller shows in Denmark.

Two of Jonna Ekberg's horses sold to US

Stephex stable rider Jonna Ekberg parts ways with two of her top mounts, Air Pia VG Z (by Air Jordan Z) and Freestyler (by Lord Z). Both have recently been sold by Stephan Conter to the USA. Air Pia VG Z was ridden by Daniel Deusser before Ekberg took over the reins and jumped the mare at international CSI5* level; and she now moves to a student of McLain Ward. Belgian Warmblood gelding Freestyler represented Sweden at the Nations Cups in Falsterbo and Rotterdam with Ekberg, Freestyler now moves to the stables of Miss Clark. But Stephan Conter has already invested in a new ride for Jonna Ekberg, she recently debuted Cassini Bay (by Cassini I) previously ridden by Nicola Rodinetti.
