Excellent quality of horses at the Free Jumping Competition in Verden

Penelope PJ_photo Tammo Ernst presseThe Perigueux/Calypso II-daughter Penelope PJ 
(breeder: Heinz-Dieter Goedecke, Blumenhagen, 
exhibitor: Pferdezucht Dr. Jacobs GbR, Bierbergen) 
won the Free Jumping Competition of four-year-old 
horses, held by the Hanoverian Jumper Breeding Program. 
"She was simply fantastic, second to none," was the 
comment of the successful show jumping rider and 
stallion holder Heiko Schmidt from Neu Benthen. 
Together with Dieter Smitz, Bad Nenndorf, and 
Hartmut Wilking, Stemwede, he was responsible for 
evaluating and judging the 56 participants.

The chestnut mare Penelope PJ was the first horse 
in the second division, earning the highest 
scores of the day for style and potential. And the judges also awarded highest scores 
for the first competitor in the third division: State premium candidate Celebration 
by Canstakko/Granulit (breeder and exhibitor: Elke and Claudia Tegtmeyer, Norderney) 
shined with powerful jumping capabilities and overall view and became the convincing 
winner in this division. Her sire Canstakko already presented the best young jumper 
in the first division: Candido, bred out of a Perpignon-dam (breeder: Dr. Dieter 
Burfeindt, Heeslingen, exhibitor: Uwe Lemmermann and Dr. Dieter Burfeindt, Wilstedt). 
Like Celebration, he was already placed high at the Free Jumping Competition last year. 

The exhibitor of the overall winner was delighted to be honoured with a special prize, 
a free breeding to the Hanoverian stallion Spartacus TN, standing with the stud 
Henk Nijhof/Netherlands and successfully competing in the current indoor season 
under Marco Kutscher. The Free Jumping Competitions were held for the 17th time. 
The three-year-old futurity jumpers will compete in four weeks, on March 6. For
