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.

The Glamourdale-daughter Keecie Waldie (out of Truwaldie ster of Gribaldi) from breeder A. Hoving of Garmerwolde obtained exactly the same points. “This is also a very good galloping daughter from Glamourdale. She is in good rectangular model and has a good front. She is very active in canter, has a lot of power, print and balance. Her light-footedness and leg technique stand out positively in the trot. ”

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. ”


Glamourdale daughter takes the title at CK Utrecht

A good-looking group of three-year-old dressage mares returned on Friday, June 28th for the championship inspection at the Central Inspection in Houten. Convincing champion was Lady Lamelia (Glamourdale x Dream Boy), who was in control of all competition with her strong movement.

Five mares were allowed to come back for the final, all of them handsome mares, all of which were referred to the National Mare Inspection. Lady Lamelia (from Hesmelia elite EPTM-dres PROK by Dream Boy) walked to the championship with a lot of bravado. The breeding product of Gerrit Kolback showed to possess a lot of movement quality. Jury chairman Toine Hoefs: “A mare with a lot of length, built up. The withers might be allowed to walk a little longer and we also had a small remark on the foreleg that is slightly back in the knee, but when the mare starts to move you quickly forget that. She moves with a lot of power, very nice up, with good use of the foreleg. For us she was the convincing champion today. ”Kolback was very happy with the victory. “I don’t breed that much at all, and this is my second time being at the front. The first time was here, with her mother. Actually, she was not at all as special as a foal, but last year we thought it could become a very good one, and she showed that today! ”

A Glamourdale daughter was placed fourth again. This was La Reina (out of Black Lady ster by Dutch Dormello, breeder Th. Willig from Abcoude). “A long-lined mare with a lot of variety and appearance and a beautiful front”.


Highest points for George Clooney daughter Lily at SK Varsseveld

A studbook inspection of the Gelderland region took place on June 27th in Varsseveld. Two dressage mares earned 80 points for their presentation.

Of the 26 mares that Bart Bax and Floor Dröge judge in Varsseveld, 12 could be declared ster. “The accommodation was great, everything was well cared for and the ring looked great,” says Bart Bax. “We have seen some mares today that could be more correct in the foundation. In addition, we saw horses that were slightly downward in the hull direction, which was also reflected in the movement. ”

Two mares achieved 80 points for movement, including the mare Lily (George Clooney out of Hailey by Johnson, breeder S. Wijnveen of Winterswijk) of W. Scholten from Lichtenvoorde. This mare got 85 points for the walk, 80 for trot and 75 for canter and posture, she scored 75 points for conformation. “This is a mare with a lot of charisma that is more than sufficiently in the rectangular model. She has an appealing front with a long neck that is well muscled. The top line is strong enough and also has good muscling. In addition, the mare has a hard foundation. In step she is active, pure and has a lot of flexibility and a lot of space. The trot is light-footed, with good technique and a lot of flexibility. What struck this mare is that she does not need speed to trot correctly. The canter has a good three-act with more than sufficient balance and suppleness, she could remain a little more closed in the canter for a higher grade. ”

Negro daughter Kaitlyn Karla
Four-year-old Kaitlyn Karla (Negro from Encanta Karla elite sport PROK by Vivaldi) from breeder G. Loeters from Didam received a 70/80 header beam. “This mare is more than adequate in the rectangular model and has an appealing head. The neck looks good and has more than sufficient length, it has a nicely developed wither that extends long into the back. Kaitlyn Karla has a strong top line but could have been a little more correct in the foundation for higher points. The walk is active, pure and has good space. In the trot the mare has a good technique and a good use of the hindleg, while she can switch easily. To get higher points, she was sometimes allowed to stay a little more uphill. The canter has a good three-act and more than sufficient posture, but could use a little more body. ”

Charlotte Fry scores in Geesteren

During the CSI Twente in Geesteren, the FEI Nations Cup Dressage was held on 22 and 23 June. Charlotte Fry and Dark Legend came for England and managed to achieve a beautiful 3rd place with Team GB.

In the Grand Prix, Charlotte scored a PR with 74.41% and settled in position 5 among the routiniers. The duo also scored very well in the Grand Prix Special. In the first outstretched trot along the long side, the black gelding was startled and galloped, causing the points to go down, but then the 23-year-old Fry picked up and put down a very good test. The walk was very beautiful and it was also striking how nice and constant the contact was. A beautiful 5th place was their end result.
