Qualification day

from

Regional association Hanover / Bremen

on the Basselthof

19.07.2020

Again some tournament feeling….

Our IPZV Landesverband Hannover-Bremen had the concept "Qualification days as a trip on two weekends" started a good idea. Of course we immediately decided to take part. After the mandatory Corona break, all riders interested in the tournament had the opportunity to check their level of performance and possibly also to achieve the qualification points for DIM, DJIM or the next performance class. Unfortunately, when we decided on the date, we hadn't taken into account that quite a few riders were on vacation. But still there were enough brave people who wanted to present their horses to the judges in various tölt and gait tests. The team of the national association arrived at 9:00 a.m., consisting of two judges, the speaker (Calvin Hogh did his job great!) And a computer station as well as an excellent sound system. It started at 9:30 a.m. and two hours later it was all over. Effective, well organized and relaxed, compliments to everyone involved! Many of our riders / horses had their tournament premiere, others were happy to finally be able to ride their favorite test again in front of a numerically small but all the more committed audience. Because it was an event only for the court's adjusters and therefore without guests.

It's nice that there was a little tournament feeling despite the restriction!

A praise also for the "corona discipline" of the audience.

   

     

 

           

 

  

Beginning of the foal season

on the Basselthof

The first Basselthof foals also took advantage of the end of the cold nights and the exit restrictions and hatched.

The descendants of Már, Pilatus and colleagues (1 day old in the pictures) use the first warm rays of the sun to curiously explore the big green world at the side of the caring mothers (Kólfreyja, Klara and Perla).

            

 

  

Horse holiday

on the Basselthof

For our horses that is End of curfew (depending on the season) a reason to To celebrate......

After the wild horde has stormed the lush green pasture in a gallop, you can, as every year at the beginning of the pasture season, admire a lot of exuberance, temperament and joie de vivre among our Icelanders.

Beginning of spring

on the Basselthof

Our horses use the first rays of the sun ...

When the temperatures are cool, our four-legged friends, on the one hand, want to relax in the soft sand, but on the other hand, they show in high spirits how urgently appropriate additional exercise is at this time of the year.
