Under Arjen van Diepen, the five-year-old Everdale-daughter Janis JS scored the highest score in the IBOP in Panningen on Saturday 12th January, where nine of the 13 mares presented passed.
During the studbook inspection in Noord Holland, Janis JS (Everdale out of Rose-Bella stb pref by Belisar), owned by Mrs Schouten in Alkmaar, had already been awarded ster status with 80 points for both conformation and movement loose. Although still green, she proved today to be a very talented mare under the saddle too. “She was clearly the highlight of the day” said Petro Trommelen. “Janis JS can easily switch movement and is very willing to work. In trot she shows a lot of self-carriage meaning she needs no speed to be able to move well. The highest score, a 9, we were able to give to her very pure and active walk. The carriage was still a little variable and we had to take that into consideration in the score for rideability and trainability, but the walk remained even and constant under all circumstances. She has three good basic paces, a lot of elasticity and good carriage and balance.” With a splendid score of 83 points Janis JS earned the IBOP and thus too the elite predicate.
Kassandra-Tessa UDP (Everdale x Houston x Purioso), owned by I. Hoeben-Sanders in Egchel, also passed, with 75 points. This mare scored an 8.5 for her walk and was awarded the IBOP and elite predicate.
