The two-time world champion Kjento (Negro x Jazz), bred by the Van Os family from Sprang Capelle, made his debut in regular sport yesterday. The eight-year-old KWPN stallion made his debut at the Subtop competition in Delft. Rider Charlotte Fry and Kjento rode there very first Prix St. Georges to a great score of 76.692%. In addition to a clear victory, the duo also obtained a coveted ticket for the Prix St. Georges at Jumping Amsterdam.
After the 2022 World Championships for Young Horses in Ermelo, it was Kjento’s first time in the ring again. “I found it very exciting but it went very well. Kjento was great,” Fry praises the stallion. “Kjento is a horse that enjoys his work, is not spooky in the ring and also does the work very easily. A really nice horse to work with!”
With a score of 76.692% they managed to win this competition by force majeure. The protocol includes a whole series of 8’s, 8.5’s and even 9’s for the canter half pass to the right with flying change, the changes on every three strides and the extended canter. “It went very well, but we had a little thing in the first pirouette. I had not prepared it well enough and that caused a small mistake.” But other then that I’m really really happy with this debut.
