    PRE Horses Indiferent and Mejorano V to Represent Spain at the 2017 European Dressage Championship for Juniors at Roosendaal (Holland)

    Between the 9th and 13th of August, junior riders from twenty-seven countries travelled to Roosendaal (Holland) to compete in the 2017 European Dressage Championships for Juniors and Children. In this latter class, Spain was represented by two Purebred Spanish Horses: Indiferent, owned by Eugassada Germans Ribera and ridden by Jessica Castro, and Mejorano V, bred by Yeguada Bauza, owned by José Manuel Pons Sintes and ridden by Araceli Pons.

    After the corresponding veterinarian inspections on Tuesday, the event began on Wednesday the 9th, with the first tests for Junior and Young Riders. On Thursday the 10th, the two PREs representing Spain in the Preliminary for Children entered the arena. Mejorano V had an average of 68.333% while Indiferent earned 65.433%.

    Saturday, during the test for teams, Mejorano V was, undoubtedly, one of the pairs leading the Spanish team. They placed 15th on the roster (68.100%) performing an excellent test, which allowed them a place in the individual final. For the general classification, Indiferent was among the top 20.

    On Sunday, Mejorano V returned to the arena for the individual final where only the first five qualify. Once again, horse and rider performed a very correct test to earn an average of 67.219%. This gave them a well-deserved fourteenth place on the general European Championship roster.
