Levisto - Sire of the World

20-09-2008

Traditionally, the WBFSH championship for young jumping horses held at Zangersheide is also the host to the prestigeous Sire of the World jumping.

The class was bigger than ever this year with 56 entries. Under a beautiful clear blue September sky this Grand Prix competition turned out to be great entertainment and no one knew the outcome until the young Judy-Ann Melchior had made her entry.

With her charming grey Holsteiner Levisto by Leandro x Carolus Judy-Ann Mechior, daughter of the founder of Zangersheide Leon Melchior, easily made her way to the jump-off where the perfect interplay between horse and rider was demonstrated in high speed and tight turns. The ride resulted in yet another clear round in only 39,64 seconds.
