Jumping Indoor Maastricht 2023

This year Jumping Indoor Maastricht will be organised from 10 till 13 November. JIM offers top sport with, among others, the FEI Driving World Cup and the Grand Prix of Maastricht combined with the Limburg hospitality. An event for the whole family!


On Friday afternoon the CSI4* combinations had their first competitions in the beautiful arena in the MECC. The De Limburger Prix, a 2 phases with obstacles up to 1.40m, was won by Dutch Patrick Lemmen. The 33-year-old rider of Carpe Diem Stables in Baarlo jumped clear in 26.08 seconds with the nine-year-old mare Jolie Fleur (Contact van de Heffinck x Cassinao). The world’s number 1, Harrie Smolders, finished runner-up with Hocus Pocus de Muze (BWP, Tinka’s Boy x For Pleasure) followed by Michel Hendrix with Elco van Hof Ter Naillen 9SBS, Elvis Ter Putte x Toulon) in third place.

The next class, the Roelofsen Horsetrucks Prix, was won by Belgium’s Jos Verlooy with the BWP gelding Japatero VDM (Eldorado van de Zeshoek x For Pleasure). Italy’s Piergiorgio Bucci set a time that seemed very difficult to improve. He was in the lead for a very long time with the Holsteiner Chochello (Casall x Cartani 4), but finally had to settle for second place. Holland’s Kevin Jochems finished in third place with Kyamant van ’t Spieveld (Diamant de Semilly x Toulon).
