Efe Siyahi, Patrick Lemmen and Rogier Linssen have ridden no less than 14 clear rounds during CSI Opglabbeek last week. One of the rides of Efe resulted in a third place with Concret during the CSI2* on 1.45m level. A report:
On Thursday December 8th, the first day of CSI Opglabbeek, Efe Siyahi came into action with Daydream (by Colman) during the CSI2* on 1.30m level. The combination rode a clear round and became 5th. Efe also showed up in the arena with the chestnut Beau du Rouet (by Balou du Rouet) during the CSI2* on 1.30m level, where they also put down a flawless round.
On Friday December 9th, Efe rode the 7-year-old Black Jack (by Canturano) during the CSIYH1* on 1.35m level. They crossed the finish line with no faults. Efe also rode a clear round with Beau du Rouet, but than in the CSI2* on 1.40m level.
Patrick Lemmen became 15th with Donanso (by Vingino) during the CSI2* on 1.35m level, with a clear round. With Dadallah (by Wittinger VDL) he was also flawless during the CSI2* on 1.40m level. The clear rounds continued with Concret (by Concreto). With Efe holding the bridles he had no faults during the Grand Prix qualifier on 1.40m level.
Just like the performance of Efe and Black Jack on Friday December 9th, where they crossed the finish line with a clear round, they where also flawless during the CSIYH1* on 1.40m level. An amazing performance of the only 7-year-old showjumper. Efe rode two clear rounds with Concret on 1.45m level where they became 3rd! Patrick Lemmen became 13th with Donanso during the CSI2* on 1.35m level.
On Sunday, during the CSI2* Grand Prix on 1.45m/1.50m level, Patrick Lemmen became 15th with Ideaal (by Andiamo). Efe and Daydream ended up in 10th place during the CSI2* on 1.35m level and Rogier Linssen became 5th in the same category with Elina Maria (by Diamant de Semilly). Both riders where, offcourse, flawless.
