Ebba Danielsson just took the win by a distance in the U25 final for the Hästens Amsterdam Prize at Jumping Amsterdam. With ten-year-old KWPN-approved stallion Equus Tame (by Qlassic Bois Margot), the Swedish rider was lest best in a ten-strong jump-off.
With a raging, clear jump-off in an impressive time of 30.73 seconds, the pupil cvan Vincent Voorn beat new combination Hessel Hoekstra with Comthago VDL (by Comme il Faut) in a spirited 1.45m course. Hoekstra rode the 10-year-old Holsteiner clear round in 34.61 seconds. Iris Michels rode by far the fastest time with 13-year-old Bugano de l’Abbaye (by Ugano Sitte). The combination got a fault in the jump-off and owed third place to her time of 29.60 seconds.
Ebba Danielsson finished no less than 3.5 seconds faster than Hessel Hoekstra in the jump-off. Didn’t she take a little too much risk with her stallion Equus Tame, with a little less gas on the board she could have won the U25 final too. “Yes, but I didn’t see Hessel’s ride at all. I had watched the jump-off course and had in my head how I wanted to do it. I executed exactly that way.”
Very fast horse
“Equus Tame is a very fast horse, who jumps well. He loves it when everyone is watching him. I’ve been riding him for a year now. This was a big win for us. I am very happy.”
First time at Jumping Amsterdam
Ebba Danielsson rode at Jumping Amsterdam for the first time. “It is a very nice competition and I would love to come back again,” she said.
