Our stable employee Sanne Janssen won the regional Championship last weekend in the L class with her horse Alexios.

Sanne is a member of Driving club ‘Zeeuwsche menvereniging’ and therefore starts for Mendistrict West. The competition was held in Blaricum. Her horse Alexios is a harness horse (Saffraan x Balmoral) of 13 years. ‘ I have him for two years now and we are getting bit by bit  a step further, ‘ says Sanne. ‘ This is my second season with Alexios and we have a rising line. ‘ Alexios is an experienced horse, but it is difficult to keep him calm and relaxed. ‘ I do a lot of lunging and make rides in the forest. He knows the game and never stops,’ she says about her horse. ‘His enthusiasm is sometimes difficult in dressage. About my test in Blaricum I was satisfied and I actually hoped for better points. The cones went great, we had no knockdowns and finished within time. In the marathon on Saturday he was great and gave me a good feeling. ‘

In the rankings of the L-class Sanne was second, but she was the best of the Wester regions and became regional Champion. That earned her direct placement for the KNHS Championship (NK) in Gaasterland (7 and 8 september).
