First World Cup victory for Hans Peter & GLOCK’s Dream Boy
The seventh stage of the FEI Dressage World Cup™ 2018/2019 Western European League took place during the last weekend of December 2018 in Mechelen, Belgium.
GLOCK’s Dream Boy really lived up to his name here. Under GLOCK Rider Hans Peter Minderhoud, this just ten-year-old KWPN stallion, progeny of Vivaldi and a dam descended from Ferro, took victory in the Grand Prix with a score of 75.870%. In the freestyle too, there was no getting past the GLOCK duo: with 83.665%, Hans Peter and GLOCK’s Dream Boy danced not only to their personal best score, but also to their first World Cup victory. As a result, Hans Peter is now in equal-third position in the current World Cup Standings.
“Dreamy had only started in a few Grands Prix when he qualified for the World Equestrian Games in Tryon (USA). That was of course early for such a young horse, so he got a break after that. He didn’t exactly have the easiest of comebacks a week ago in London, but he felt great again here in Mechelen and was super too!”, said GLOCK Rider Hans Peter Minderhoud. “He showed much more concentration, I was able to ride him precisely and he gave his best.”
