Big scores for Charlotte Fry with Inclusive and Especial: ‘Very cool that I ride two Everdales in the Grand Prix’

Charlotte Fry stood out today in the Grand Prix at the Subtop competition in Hoek van Holland. With Inclusive (by Everdale) she won the class with a score of 72.717% and with Especial, also a son of Everdale, she came second with a total of 71.413%. “Both horses went very well and showed their talents,” says Fry, who not only had the highest score in the class, but also the highest score of the day. “This is a really nice start to the summer season with these two.”

It was the first time outside for both horses and although that was still a bit exciting, they both let themselves be ridden well. “I always find it a little easier for the horses at an international competition because they are there for a few days and have a little more chance to get used to it, but I really couldn’t be more satisfied today,” continues Fry. “Inclusive thought it was a bit exciting for the first time outside, but he showed himself very well in the test. He has a huge talent for the piaffe and passage and we had nines for that on the protocol today. There were some small things that I can do better myself, but overall it was a really nice test.”

Getting stronger

In addition to the good points for the piaffe and the passage, the duo also received good points for the canter part. “I notice in the test that I can ask more of Inclusive every time and that it is becoming easier and easier for him,” continues the stable rider of Van Olst Horses. “He surprises me every time with that, he is of course also getting stronger. You can see this, for example, in the tempi changes, which scored  8.5s today and were really among the highlights of the test.”


For Especial it was the second time at the highest level and with him Fry was also about six percent separate from the rest of the competition. “Especial is still green at this level, but he really showed his talents today,” said Fry. “He gives a very nice feeling and, just as Inclusive, he has a lot of talent for piaffe and passage. If he gets a little more experience and stays a bit more relaxed in the test, those scores can go up a lot.”

Just like Everdale

“Of course I have several horses at the highest level and I am really very happy with that, but I also think it is really special that with these two I now also have two sons of Everdale in the Grand Prix”, says Fry proudly . “It is really nice to feel that they are very flexible and elastic just like their father and also have just as much energy. They always feel like they want to do the job and you can tell they enjoy being in the center of attention. It is very nice to work with them.”


Fry does not yet have a fixed schedule for Inclusive and Especial, but if possible she would like to take them internationally. “For me, the focus is currently mainly on Glamourdale, Everdale and Lars for the international competitions, but if I succeed I will also try to include Inclusive and Especial”, Fry looks ahead. “If those two get a little more confidence and experience, they will also be two very special ones.”

Horses and Dreams meets Canada

For the first time since the outbreak of the Corona Pandemic, Horses and Dreams is back in its completely original version. About 600 horses are on the showgrounds of the Kasselmann family in Hagen, Germany. The set-up of the competition is as usual: Spacious stands, shops, restaurants… Really everything has been thought of!

Charlotte Fry will start with three horses: Dark Legend in the 4* Grand Prix for the freestyle, Everdale in the 4* Grand Prix for the special and his son Inclusive in the 3* Grand Prix for the special.
The youngest of the three is Inclusive and he was the first to enter the arena. The 9-year-old son of Everdale, bred by the Enting family from Grolloo out of an Uptown mare, competed for the second time in the international Grand Prix. With highlights such as the piaffe, passage and the extended trot and canter, but also some points for improvement, he scored 71.065%. Again a new PB for this combination!

The day after, Inclusive was again the first to participate, but this time for the Grand Prix Special. Awake and fresh as always, he marched through his first Special at international level. Again a score of more than 71%, a more than successful debut in this competition!

In the afternoon it is Everdale’s turn. After the European Championship, which also took place in these arenas, it’s the first time that Everdale is competed. The test seemed more relaxed, in a good frame, shows a piaffe out of the book and no mistakes. Everdale is on his way to a super form. The total score is exactly 74%, which might have been 2% more…

On Friday the dressage will continue with the Grand Prix for the Freestyle in which Dark Legend will appear at the start. The 4* Special will be held on Saturday afternoon and the 4* Freestyle to music is on the program for Saturday evening.

Everdale daughter champion CK Utrecht

Two wrong champions were mistakenly honored at the Central Inspection of Region Utrecht last Friday in Houten. The horses that were proclaimed champions of the Utrecht region during the Central Inspection were not from this province.

The new champion of the four-year-old and older dressage mares is the five-year-old Jet-Ray (Everdale out of Danira, star D-OC of De Niro, breeder E. Kruiswijk of Loenen aan de Vecht). She particularly stood out for her generous size and size. Inspector Toine Hoefs: “She first showed herself very well, she can trot well and take extra steps. In total she should be a little more upward. ”


Everdale son wins Subli-Cup Schijndel

During the second competition in the Subli Competition for Young Dressage Horses in Schijndel on June 15th, the victory of the four-year-olds went to the Everdale son Kenndale.

“Van Houtem-Vos entered the ring with her horse as the first combination with the four-year-olds and immediately put down a great test,” said jury member Schaeffer. “Kenndale was nice and loose through his body and his rider let him constantly pass through the test. Definitely a nice horse to see. ”Together with Kenndale (by Everdale), Nora van Houtem-Vos with a score of more than 84% was too strong for the 22 combinations. “A lot of people have already indicated that they are interested in him, but I really won’t put him away!”
The black stallion is still very young at the age of four. “He is exemplary. Kenndale walks around in such a competition as if he had never done anything else so he doesn’t look up or down. It is precisely in the ring that he gives me that little bit more. I ride him from the age of three and a half. The first time I took him, he immediately became third, the next time he led the entire day and he became champion at the talent competition. Everything is good about him. He has a great walk, nice trot and a strong canter. So a very complete and nice horse “, the rider tells enthusiastically.
