  • Canada’s athlete of the year, Lamaze, is offered new chances
    2011-12-14

    The sponsors of the Canadian show jumper Eric Lamaze are determined to secure him a spot back at the highest sports level. In order to do so Eric’s sponsors bought him three new mounts, one of which ‘Hunters Scendix’ was bought only last week. The two other horses, both 9 year olds, are ‘Verdi’, formerly ridden by Dutch Young Rider Stephanie van den Brink and ‘Luikka’ of Irishman Shan Breen. The last named horses made their debut at GP level in 2011. Besides receiving these new opportunities, Cavalor sponsored Lamaze and Hickstead have been nominated as Canada’s athlete of the year on CBC sports. Canada’s national public broadcaster has nominated twelve athletes. But it was the Olympic champions Lamaze and Hickstead that received the overwhelming majority of the votes. Sports journalist Scott Russell said that they were ‘world’s best’ and for many Canadians, restored a sense of wonder to sport in 2011. “We are proud to name Eric and Hickstead as the ‘Athlete of the Year.’ On top of all this, Lamaze was also recognized as the winner of the ‘Rider of the Year’ award, for the second year in a row. This nomination was held Saturday evening, December 10, during the CSI5*-W Geneva show jumping tournament in Switzerland. The winner of the ‘Rider of the Year’ title is determined by vote by the members of the International Jumping Riders Club, and is awarded by the equestrian publication yearbook, L’Annee Hippique.

    Raf Kooremans’ Olympic premium horse sold to the USA
    Raf Kooremans’ Olympic premium horse sold to the USA On his website Dutch eventing rider Raf Kooreman confirmed the sale of his own 9 year old mare, Cavalor Demeter to the US. Cavalor Demeter placed within the top five of two CCI3*'s this year and competed for the Netherlands at the European Championships. The horse looked to be Raf's top candidate to compete at the London Olympic games. As a result of the sale, the Netherlands loses one of its best eventing horses and perhaps also a ticket for the Olympic Games 2012. Raf Kooremans is still hoping to get his qualifications with two other horses: So Special and his new talent Chase the Moon, so as to compete at the Olympics in Londen next year. Cavalor Demeter is due to leave for the USA shortly, to be with Marilyn Little-Meridith. Marilyn explained that buying Demeter is about buying a really nice talented young horse. When Raf asked Marilyn what she liked about Demeter, he was expecting an explanation about Demeter's jump, speed, and movement. Instead Marilyn spent most of the time telling about Demeters’ personality. She said "I loved her eye, she's a panther, she's an old soul with toughness and athleticism." Raf has a new challenge now: to be requalified for the Olympics with one of his two talented horses. Cavalor wishes him and Marilyn all the best and good luck!
