The eight-year-old stallion, Ulahop Boy, jumped on 1m40/1m45 classes. He made first a clear round and then unfortunately let a bar fallen. “I’m very satisfied with Ulahop’s behavior for this king of event. He has rather a lot of maturity for his age.”
Coleman was registered in three courses and he notably got the ninth place of a 1m50 class in which he was fast but also skillful. “He is still true to form and answers well my demands.”

That was a pleasure.”
No Limit’s son, Beau Limit, enabled Cassio to rank twice on three registrations. On Wednesday, the KWPN made a fairly fast and perfect round and thus got the second place.
