The Anglo European Studbook (AES) are looking forward to the inaugural Global Champions Trophy – the new WBFSH studbooks Jumping Global Champions Trophy – which is showing great potential to become one of the most exciting events in the annual jumping calendar.

According to studbook director Joris van den Oetelaar: “We very much welcome this new concept, which gives our up-and-coming talent an excellent opportunity to shine and which celebrates the achievements of our breeders. It is a great pleasure to support the event, which I am sure has a very exciting future ahead.
“I am also delighted to introduce our chef d’equipe, Robbert Ehrens. Robbert has been a highly valued member of our AES judging panel for years, and we are very pleased to be able to draw on his expertise.”
Robbert is passionate about breeding, an interest which he combines with valuable experience in the schooling and production of young horses up the levels, and said; “Together with my father Rob Ehrens I have a training and sport stable in Weert. I rode myself at the highest international level, but my main focus at the moment is the education of talented young jumping horses. I am also a trainer and like to help people to learn and get better in the sport. I am also a qualified Level 5 coach with our National Federation.
“For me, to make internationally successful horses, everything has to come together, breeding, education and training. This is why I find the new challenge of selecting and managing the AES teams for the WBFSH Studbooks Jumping Global Champions Trophy so interesting.”
A particular strength of the new Champions Trophy is the class for the eight-year-old horses and older stallions, which sets it apart from the World Breeding Championships for Young Horses and gives horses a chance to show their transition up to the higher levels...
