Victory and third place for Hans Peter & GLOCK’s Dream Boy
Olympia - The London International Horse Show is one of the favourite events in the tournament calendar for GLOCK Riders Hans Peter Minderhoud and Edward Gal. Unfortunately, at the last moment Edward had to cancel participating in this year’s World Cup tournament in London (17-18/12/2018), because GLOCK’s Zonik N.O.P. had a fever.
Nevertheless, just ten-year-old GLOCK’s Dream Boy N.O.P. took part in this dressage World Cup as planned and the performance was auspicious. Following a well-earned break after the World Equestrian Games in Tryon (USA), GLOCK’s Dream Boy N.O.P. showed he was in top condition and, under Hans Peter Minderhoud, delivered the top score in the Grand Prix, which the GLOCK duo won with 73.895%.
Expectations were correspondingly high in the freestyle – could it really be the first World Cup victory for the GLOCK dream team? The just ten-year-old son of Vivaldi and a dam descended from Ferro scored 77.990% with some errors and ultimately that earned third place. “It could have gone better today”, said GLOCK Rider Hans Peter Minderhoud, “but Dreamy has still got so much time ahead, so a victory and a third place here are super.”
