This edition of Jumping Indoor Maastricht finished with a very exciting final with the Longines Trophy – Grand Prix of Maastricht. The Belgian riders were very successful during the three days and so they were in the Grand Prix.
The main class of Saturday evening’s programme was the Audi Prize. Nine combinations stayed clear in the initial round to reach the jump-off of this 1.50m competition, including three combinations from Belgium.
The Saturday evening started with a spectacular speed and handiness class. Albert Zoer’s Heechhiem’s Cancun VDM (KWPN, Balou de Rouet Z x Karandasj) showed all qualities to win this class: speed and handiness!
Timothy Hendrix is in top form in Maastricht. This afternoon he also won the Chapeau Prix with the nine-year-old mare Janou (For Pleasure x Polydor). Yesterday he was also the best in the De Limburger Prix.
Diederik van Silfhout won the Vian Prix, Grand Prix Freestyle on Saturday afternoon with a great score of 80.325%. Arlando N.O.P. was in good form and showed a real good test. Highlights were his passage, piaffe and pirouettes.
The organisation of Jumping Indoor Maastricht is very thankful for the trust of all the participants, visitors, exhibitors, sponsors and volunteers that have supported the return of JIM. All efforts put together, ensured that we can now look back on a very successful edition. The positive reactions of visitors and in the media, confirm that JIM has been missed over the years and that it still has a special place in the hearts of many.
We would like to welcome you again in 2017; JIM will be then held from the 10 until the 12th of November!
