We can look back on a great 2022 in which we were able to achieve great achievements including the two times individual gold at the World Championships in Herning for Lottie and Glamourdale, the victory of Lottie and Kjento in the seven-year-old dressage horses at the Longines FEI/WBFSH Dressage World Breeding Championships for Young Horses and earlier this year Lottie was also named the Peden Bloodstock FEI Best Athlete of 2022.
After all the amazing achievements of Lottie and Glamourdale, both are now at the top of the global ranking for best dressage athlete and best dressage horse as of 31-12-2022.

Lottie Fry and Glamourdale ‘on fire’ for a frenzied home audience

The British public went wild on Saturday night when their own Charlotte Fry and the KWPN stallion Glamourdale (Lord Leatherdale out of Thuja stb pref prest by Negro, breeder J.W. Rodenburg of Ouderkerk aan den IJssel) started their last piaffe passage tour in the Freestyle on Music in London.

Herning’s world champions took it one step further and danced to victory in the World Cup competition with a personal best of 90.995%.

It was the first time that Lottie Fry was on British soil with her golden World Cup horse Glamourdale. The stallion was in great shape, 22 tens were on the protocol. Many of those tens fell in the artistic section, but also for the extended canter (five times), the two tempis, the halfpass to the left, the extended trot and the halt. Very well deserved, the score came to 90.995%, a personal best and a convincing victory.

Incredible crowd
“The crowd support tonight has been incredible, and to end this amazing year here is amazing! It’s almost impossible to sum up 2022 – it’s been incredible and coming to London and performing in front of my home crowd is the best feeling and the best way to end the year!” said Fry.

Of the Glamourdale performance, she said, “I had such an easy, fun ride. He’s better than in Herning and we keep improving, so I can’t wait for the next few years. Paris (Olympics 2024) is definitely the target, and we’ll see how it goes until then.”

Lottie and Glamourdale in a league of their own in London

After the two gold medals at the World Cup in Herning last August, Charlotte Fry returned to the ring today at the World Cup competition in London with Glamourdale (by Lord Leatherdale x Negro, breeder Mr. Rodenburg). It was a dream comeback: the top score of 84.026% appeared on the boards for the “short” Grand Prix, another new personal best for Lottie.

Lottie and Glamourdale’s test was rewarded with a whole series of eights and nines. The ultimate ten appeared for seven parts: the entry and halt, the extended trot, the two tempies and the one tempies, the extended canter, the first passage on the AC line and the last halt. She was placed as number 1 by the entire jury corps. With a score of 84.026%, the combination was more than five percent ahead of the nr 2 combination.

Athlete of the Year!

Charlotte Fry has been named Peden Bloodstock FEI Best Athlete in Cape Town. The crown on an already golden year.
At the World Championships in Herning, Lottie won individual gold in the Grand Prix Spécial and in the freestyle to music. At the World Championships for Young Dressage Horses in Ermelo, she again won gold for her performance with the seven-year-old Kjento.

“To be the Best Athlete of 2022 is really crazy. I still can’t quite get it and don’t really know what to say about it, but it’s great. The people I have to thank most for all my successes so far are Anne and Gertjan van Olst. They give me the most amazing opportunities and let me ride horses like Glamourdale on a daily basis.

KWPN Young Dressage Talents Oosteind

On November 5, the KWPN West Brabant organized a competition for young dressage horses in Oosteind: the KWPN Young Dressage Talents. A well-organized competition where the young horses can gain experience in a beautiful atmosphere. An additional advantage is that it is a 15-minute drive for us, which makes it possible to participate with several horses.

In the four-year-old class, not less than 9 of our horses took part, 6 of these horses belonged to the best 8 of the day. The best three horses were trial ridden in the final by the guest judge Jorinde Verwimp, who judged this class together with Danielle Heikoop.

Nacho Groll, the Everdale x Uptown son, bred by R. Enting, came in eighth place, he’s bred out of the same dam as the KWPN stallion Inclusive. Nacho Groll was ridden by our stable rider Phoebe Peters. She also shared the fifth place with Ninja D’Or and Supernatural. Ninja D’Or, by Chippendale, was bred by Berry van der Hoorn and J. van Stokkom out of a Rousseau mare and Supernatural is owned by Phoebe Peters herself. Heather Stack from Great Britain is the breeder of this chestnut gelding.
Then in 3rd place it was again Phoebe Peters but now in the saddle of the winner of last year’s three-year-olds, Everest. Everest was bred by Van Olst Horses and sired by Especial and the mare Fresia s. Negro x Monaco.
In second place Charlotte Fry with the Everdale daughter Nova-Liz, who was also the highest placed mare. Nova-Liz was bred by Mr Van der Steen out of the Johnson mare Frizzle Liz. The first place in this class was also for Charlotte Fry, but now with the KWPN stallion Nalegro. The black powerhouse made a big impression during this first round with his powerful hind leg and talent for collecting. His sire is the Grand Prix stallion Painted Black and his dam is none other than the full sister of the world famous dressage horse Valegro s. Negro x Gershwin. Breeders of this stallion are the Hanse family and Van Olst Horses.

Jorinde Verwimp then tried out the best three horses and afterwards indicated that she was very impressed with the quality of the horses and the level of training. Everest received 85 points from her, Nova-Liz 90 points and Nalegro 95 points, so the final standings in the class no longer changed.

During the competition in Le Mans, W-Horseland Inverness ridden by Brecht D’Hoore managed to secure a second place in the Small Tour with a score of 70.088%. It was not the first international competition for them, but the KWPN approved stallion is more and more experienced at this level.

There was an international debut for Kingsdale. This son of Everdale was bred by Van Olst Horses out of the Negro x Monaco mare Eternal Flame, who also obtained the “prestatie” predicate. Kingsdale became 10th in the Prix st. Georges with a score of 68.618%.

In the subsequent Intermediare I test there was now a very deserved first place for Brecht and W-Horseland Inverness, now with a score of no less than 75.040%! Kingsdale, again ridden by Marieke Ponzo Dieu – De Pundert, managed to take fourth place in this test with a score of 71.525!
