    Guus is such a rock star - complete with the gorgeous model girlfriend!

    if you click on this link, you will see a photo of one buff Fjord!!

    loose translation:

    To take part in the dressage Masterclass a dressage combination must have shown/qualified at least ZZ-licht (around 4th-PSG). Guu's rider is the first to have a Fjord which meets this requirement.

    Apparently, there are size limits over there on adults riding ponies,esp ponies under a certain size. The size limit got changed, and Guus was able to compete in the tests and qualify.


    The writer hopes that NHB Deurne will allow, also for the other training, students with a small horse. and goes on to say that the writer believes that this kind of education is what is necessary for the future of the horse world; that it should be more important to look at motivation, perseverance and the rider's feeling at the selection procedure and less to the size of the horse that rider might be on.

    Theo--who is teaching this Master class?

    The masterclass at Deurne is a two years course in which they have manyyyy teachers. You don't only learn to ride, but all parts of equestrian businesses are teached, such as stable-management, media-training, financial, medical etc..etc...

    You need this course to become a registred trainer and we have two of these academies Deurne and Ermelo. Deurne is a day-course and Ermelo an evening/weekend course.

    I have never seen a Fjord with a full mane like that. Over here, it seems like they are all roached, which shows off their stripe.

    Do you pronounce that like we say "Zeus" in English? I couldn't quite catch the way she was saying it.

    Yes, but the G sounds a bit like you are clearing your throat. No, really.

    Good thing I heard it, or I'd just call him Gus.
