Mauricio was also placed 8th in Sunday’s final for seven-year-old horses with Aquiles del Caribe jumping a lovely double clear. Also clear and placed was Neroli Van’t Klavertje Vier. He finished 13th in the 1m35 two-phases class.

Due to the covid pandemic and the EHV horse virus, the showing season started later than planned for our stable.  

Nevertheless last weekend 15-18 of April we started with the first official 2021 CSI 2* show in the great facilities of Azelhof Events in Lier, Belgium. All horses improved enormously during the last 4 months from the work at home and they impressed everyone with the great performances they had during the last weekend.

The 10-year-old AES mare Bridge Town was 4th in the 1m30 class on Thursday and finish 4th in the CSI 1* GP.

Mauricio Ruiz Horses is very pleased with the results of the horses in the first international show this year. This reflects the good work we did with the horses during the pandemic period.

In the last three weeks, all the horses have been jumping great in the Gold League National shows in Belgium!

Centaure du Pommeray at only eight years old is consistently jumping the 1m40 classes with great results and this last weekend in the Gold League in Opglabbeek he easily stepped up to the 1m45 Grand Prix. He’s a horse with a very good mind and lots of scope. That allows him to handle that height with ease and confidence.

Dakota is coming back from the injury he had last year in the CSI-O in Lisbon and is now jumping the 1m40 classes.

Bridgetown (9-year-old mare) is stepping up in the 1m35 classes and has always been very competitive.

Messi (8-year-old gelding) has been very consistent in the 1m35 classes and he will soon step up to the 1m40 classes as well.

Casalo, a 9-year-old gelding, is also stepping up into the 1m35 classes and becoming an easy horse to ride.

Youngsters

The young horses have been successfully competing in the young horse cycles in Belgium with excellent results.

Epsilon de Brenil has successfully been jumping the 6-year-old classes with such ease and giving consistent, good results.

Aquiles del Caribe has only jumped clear rounds since the beginning.

N-Titti has become a lot easier to ride and is stepping up into the 7-year-old circuit.

Neroli van ‘t Klavertje Vier is consistently jumping the 7-year-old cycles with such an easy way that the jumps look smaller on him.
