Anky's Big Weekend

   Anky's big weekend in Lyon!
    Report by Kelly Bauer

It must have been an interesting sight to see… the mighty Salinero stepping down off the Van Grunsven Truck, followed closely by the little palomino quarterhorse Whiz! That’s right, both dressge and reining were on the books for Anky at the International competition held in Lyon in the last weekend of October.

On saturday 31st October, Dressage Superstar Anky van Grunsven took part in her first four star reinging compeition with her new reigning partner Whizashiningwalla BB (Whiz)

Although the stops were much better than her last practice show, the score went up to 189,5 and that was only a 13th place. Sadly there is no video footage available from this test as yet.

The class was won by Aussie Shauna Larcombe riding RS Fondadores Olena, with a total score of 223 points.

Shauna is a well-known name in the Reining-Community. Since 2007, she is responsible for the management of the CS Ranch, taking over from her brother Martin, a multiple world champion, who went back to Australia at the end of 2006.

The CS Ranch in Givrins is the biggest and most modern private Reining facility in Switzerland. They have a website that is definately worth a look!

In the dressage arena Anky was much more successful aboard Salinero, winning both the Grand Prix with 77.021% and the Freestyle with 82%. The Dressage superstar was able to keep the other competitiors at bay with a generous lead in both tests.

After the freestyle Anky said:

"Salinero was great tonight, even though I had a few cold sweats at the extended trot where I thought he'd explode. He was rather sprightly today; I didn't really have to ask too much to get him into the extended gallop. It was a really nice event today with a fantastic audience. The circumstances are ideal for us, it's one of the most beautiful stages of the circuit and it's a shame that there aren't more competitors here. Maybe it's us who need to tell our colleagues: Here, you are welcomed/received like nowhere else."


Anky & Salinero at the Beijing Olympics

Monica Theodorescu and Whisper were the only competitors to give Anky a little run for her money coming second in both the Grand Prix and Freestyle. Monica & Whisper also separating themselves from the rest of the compeition by a few percent. In a somewhat Aachen-esque results list, the Netherlands rider finishing ahead of the German combination.

Here is a link to videos from Anky’s warmup and the Grand Prix winning test in Lyon.
