Beautiful sunshine welcomed the entries for the three-year-old championship reserved for Selle Français and Anglo Arabian horses oriented towards eventing which concluded yesterday (Friday, October 21).
Traditionally organized to run alongside the eventing WBCYH Mondial du Lion, this 2022 edition of 'Espoirs du Complet' [Eventing Hopes] once again confirmed the potential of this championship whose popularity is ever growing. The breeders are present, the French and international public attend, and commercial discussions abound. There is no doubt that this circuit has a great future ahead of it!
The conviviality that surrounds this event is certainly one of its key ingredients, with every component well attended, including the workshops, but it's the crowing of the champion that provides the highlight.
This year, Junior des Loges AA (Upsilon - Naiade de la Bellone x Ryon d'Anzex) took home the victory crown for his breeder Jean-Pierre Bendinelli of Elevage des Loges.
The origins of the 20 candidates showed a significant percentage of blood, with some excellent lines. In particular, the 2019 champion, Garrypière (Jarnac) saw his half sister, Javanaise de Lapierre (Dairzel Duverie x Tournepierre) in action. However, the breeding of Les Loges was firmly in the spotlight since Fiston des Loges, a full brother of Junior des Loges AA, will be competing in the WBCYH in the seven-year-old age group.
