GP victories for Hendrick’s HX and Isabella HX
20 July 2021
Michel Hendrix achieved a great result by taking the victory in the Grand Prix of CSI2* Opglabbeek last weekend. He claimed this win with the Bustique offspring Hendrick’s HX, who comes from Stal Hendrix’s own breeding. In Finland another Stal Hendrix bred horse took the win. Isabella HX won the national Grand Prix under Sanna Backlund, and with that she led a complete top 4 of Stal Hendrix horses.
Ten combinations qualified for the jump-off of the Grand Prix at the Sentower Park in Opglabbeek. With almost a full second lead, Michel took the victory aboard nine-year-old Hendrick’s HX. This Bustique offspring was bred out of the international sport mare Kathja (s.Concorde) and already won a 1.45m class with Michel Hendrix last May.
