Ebele fan Groenestein is retired.
Due to severe artritis Esther and his owner decided not to compete anymore with Ebele at Grand Prix.
He now will be able to enjoy his retirement at his owners place.
We had a lot of joy with Ebele reaching the highest level, Grand Prix Dressage which is very rare for a Friesian horse to achieve.
Second day Grand Prix was a big success!!! A second place with 65.30%, one Judge even rewarded the test with 68% and "a piaffe like a piaffe should be"!

Today Esther and Ebele fan Groenestein rode their freestyle at the Freestyle4Charity event.
Almost 1.000 euro was collected for the old horses from Pensioenpaard Friesland.
They can double the amount of money; so almost 2.000 euro for the golden oldies!
Fantastic performance and promotion for the Friesians with the Friesian Subtop Team at the Herning Horse Show - Denmark last week. Ebele fan Groenestein did a very good job!
