Joy Lammers wins Grand Prix with DSHS-horse
20 August 2012
The 24-year-old Joy Lammers knew how to stand her ground between all the male contestants in the Grand Prix of Jumping Peel & Maas. Together with her mare T. Sellie, an offspring of Namelus R, she was too quick for everyone and became first.
Many spectators came to Kessel to see the category where spectacle and top performance are combined perfectly. The course that was designed by Dutchman Henk Linders, demanded technique and speed.
The list of contestants was relatively long and contained Olympic riders as Maikel van der Vleuten, Leon Thijssen and James Paterson-Robinson. In the end, 8 out of 53 combinations placed themselves for the Jump-Of.
Lammers started as third in the Jump-Of and realized a fast time of 33,24 seconds. Ruben Romp and Loewie Joppen came close with respective time notations of 33.67 and 35.11 seconds.
“We bought T. Sellie during the Dutch Sport Horse Sales in 2004. Since then, I have won many prices with her. For example a first prize at CH Midden-Limburg and a second prize at the last year’s Grand Prix of Jumping Peel & Maas. She never lets me down,” Lammers said. “I know she is quick, that makes her very suitable for difficult Jump-Ofs.” That is how Lammers, located in Belgium, won the Grand Prix offered by Hunland Trade Russia.
