February, the 6th 2010 Otrada Equestrian Club hosted a Dressage Derby. Two Friesians, Sjirk fan de "Kromme Jelte" and Sytse van de Sherylhoeve, both ridden by Eugene Sharangovich, participated in the preliminary ride for 5 year-olds. Each of the two horses appeared to possess excellent movements at trot, nice canter and perfect manageability, the fact the jury was particularly fond of. Sjirk fan de "Kromme Jelte" (Jasper 366 x Tsjerk 328) scored 70,600%, so he and his rider were awarded 3rd place, and also flowers and prizes. Sytse van de Sherylhoeve (Beart 411 x Jurjen) got 69,400% and 4th place.

In the end there was an amateur contest, and we were very pleased with the first place being awarded to a Friesian stallion Donke fan Ferwalde (born 2001, Karel 370 x Oege) under Oksana Zhazhkova with 65,238%. The third winner was also a Friesian stallion Woutv (born 1999, Jillis – Atsjev) under Oksana Petrova with 64,762%.

This is yet another proof of the Friesians' abilities and also of their right choice for dressage riding, and though these are easy competitions just yet, Friesians and their riders have a great potential.

The Russian Friesian Association thanks to all the riders and owners, who use their wonderful Friesians in dressage shows despite of the common prejudice.
