Adelinde Cornelissen’s 2011 Reem Acra FEI World Cup Dressage Final winner Jerich Parzival was held in the veterinary inspection for the 2012 Reem Acra FEI World Cup Dressage Final on Thursday, April 19. The gelding was re-inspected at 9 a.m. this morning and passed. The Grand Prix is scheduled to start at noon here in s’-Hertogenbosch, the Netherlands.
“Parzival was actually not 100 percent pure during the inspection,” Sjaak van der Lei, Cornelissen’s partner told Horses.nl after the horse was held on Thursday. “Adelinde trained him this morning. We know that tomorrow he is fit and is walking.”
Parzival, a 15-year-old Dutch Warmblood (Jazz—Fidora, Ulft), injured a tendon before the start of the 2009 FEI World Cup Dressage Final (Nev.) and was unable to compete, and the horse was eliminated during the Grand Prix at the 2010 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games (Ky.) when the ground jury spotted blood in his mouth. Last year he took the World Cup title with an 84.80 percent.
