With 85.5 points, the NMK mare Netina (s.Glamourdale) was the big highlight today in the IBOP in Tolbert. A total of 12 dressage mares passed this performance test.
Last summer, Netina (Glamourdale out of Jetina by Dream Boy, breeder J.A.M. Hurkmans of Veghel) of Dirk Jan Mekkes and Van Olst Horses was already doing good business. At the studbook inspection she became star with 80/85, and after a good result at the Central Inspection she was invited to the NMK.
With a 9 for the walk and five times an 8.5, she achieved 85.5 points under the saddle in the IBOP. “This is a young mare with a lot of blood and an a desire to work. She moves with a lot of leg technique and is very light-footed. In walk she has a lot of shoulder freedom, she is very loose in the body and spacious. In trot and canter her good technique, impulsion and talent to shorten and widen are positively noticeable. She is a very fine mare with three good gaits and a clear natural talent”, explains inspector Bart Henstra. Thanks to this performance, Netina is now definitively elite.
