Second round today for the young horses, this time on the oval arena of the Château; the change of setting can be very educational for 7-year-old horses who are not yet very experienced at the top level. This was an already "serious" class for youngsters (7 years old), at 1.35 m, in two phases. A lesson that benefited a horse made at Zangersheide, Bonfois Van'T Hof V Eversen Z - the names of Belgian horses are rarely simple and easy to remember - a 7-year-old son of Bisquet Balou C. Bonfois (to make it simple) had 4 faults yesterday on the Arena Grandes Ecuries while Embuscade de Rêve who had won yesterday dropped a fence today. Bonfois’s rider is Belgian Koen Vereecke (52). He used to run a stallion yard which has gradually been transformed into a competition yard (Stal Vereecke in Waarschoot) and in particular a training stable for young horses which he forms with his son Andres up to international level before selling them. He has 209 international victories and is ranked 151st in the world. He is also a breeder.
