McLaren receives a 10 from guest rider, but finishes a very close second

McLaren showed all his qualities in the final of the PAVO Cup for four-year-olds. In the capable hands of Dinja van Liere, the KWPN and Oldenburg approved stallion placed among the best three who were tested by guest rider Philipp Hess. Hess was super enthusiastic about the feeling McLaren had given him. The son of Morrico got the ultimate 10 from Hess.

"I had a fantastic feeling, you can be proud of this horse," Philipp Hess explained his top score. "I am jealous of the rider who is allowed to ride and train this horse every day." Together with the points McLaren received in the semi-finals and in the morning during the first part of the final, he was a close second behind My Precious. The difference was only 0.2 points.

From the trio of judges McLaren received in the first part of the morning 88.8 points. Mariëtte Sanders praised his beautiful appearance and the presentation by Dinja van Liere was highly praised. McLaren received a 9.2 for the trot ('fantastic balance'); for the canter a 9 and also 9's for harmony and overall impression. Together with the result of the semi-finals, 86.2, McLaren went into the guest rider's override with 175 points.

Mauro Turfhorst (Zonik x Negro) performed even better in his final test than in the semi-final. He received a 9 for the canter, an 8.8 for the overall impression and twice an 8.7 for the walk and trot. This resulted in 87.8 points and an eighth place.

In the five-year-old category, Dinja van Liere and her three horses narrowly missed out on being placed among the top three. The stallion Lowlands improved enormously in the final. Mariëtte Sanders: "A wow-horse! Fantastically presented." For the walk he received a 9 ('very clear with a lot of overstep'), for the trot 8,5 ('beautifully uphill'), for the canter an 8,7 ('very functional and uphill'), a 9,5 for the harmony ('wow again!') and for the general impression a 9. This resulted in a total score of 89.4, a very small margin to the top three.

Leonidas and Labarron scored 87.2 and 85.6 and came fifth and sixth behind Lowlands.
