Kjento daughter wins Kalfsbeek Bokaal at VWF Dressage

Kjento offspring made a great impression last weekend at the VWF Dressage at Manege de Prinsenstad. The two-time World Champion is sire off the winner Patchouli Vera (ds. Bordeaux), but is also of the third-placed Paulina (ds. UB40). Kjento’s father Negro is also known as the grandfather of reserve champion Papillon (Ladignac x Negro).

Patchouli Vera is bred by Annemijn Boogaard (co-breeder and owner F. de Voogd), and made a great appearance under the saddle of her breeder and owner. “A horse with a lot of power and collecting ability and she is straight,” responds test rider Benjamin Maljaars. The mare received an eight for exterior, 8.5 for walk, carriage and elasticity. 8.8s were scored for the trot and general impression, and even a 9.2 for the canter. “A well build horse, strong, lots of body and nicely ridden to relaxation. The walk is powerful, the trot has a lot of power and impulsion and the canter is phenomenal. She pushed off the ground, but still retains the collection. A beautiful horse for the future,” said the jury, consisting of Maljaars and Marian Dorresteijn.

Paulina, bred by Annet Hartvelt and owned by Linda Hoogendoorn, was ridden by Kim Noordijk. “This is a beautiful, appealing horse, with good proportions with an active walk, a trot with a lot of flexion in the hind leg and uphill. The canter shows a lot of self carriage.” Maljaars remained enthusiastic after the test ride. “She is fun to ride and has a lot of talent.
