Boekelo Final Day with Photos

The Boekelo CCI three-star in the Netherlands wrapped up with show jumping today and Remington XXV, owned by Ron and Densey Juvonen, had two rails down to finish in 35th. It was a somehwat disappointing finish after he started out in 8th place after dressage, but the wet and heavy going on cross-country did not agree with him. Otis Barbotiere had a fantastic, clear show jumping round and moved all the way up to finish in 14th. He was in 55th after the dressage and moved up 39 places from Friday to Sunday by adding only 4.4 cross-country time penalties to his dressage score. With 110 entries it was a really tough field and challenging weather and footing conditions and Otis truly proved his mettle.

Remington traveled to Boekelo on a Land Rover High Performance grant and now has two international trips under his belt after finishing 7th at Pau in France last year. This may not have been his personal best weekend but he is truly a seasoned International horse now. Otis traveled to Boekelo on a USEF Developing Grant and showed that he has a great future ahead of him. Many thanks to the support from Land Rover and the USEF, and to Ron and Densey Juvonen and the other members of the Otis Syndicate.
