This week many 5* riders take the opportunity to compete at the CSI2* in Lier. For Belgium's show jumping rider, Niels Bruynseels it is the opportunity to debut with his new mount, the 10-year-old mare, Frenchy VDS.
The daughter of Cornet Obolensky was before competed by Belgium's Vicky van de Poel. The pair developed from youngster classes up to an international CSI Grand Prix level.
In 2018 they placed 4th in the CSI2* Grand Prix of Mechelen. Last year the combination ended as runner-up in the Grand Prix of Lier. Van de Poel entrusts her compatriot with her mare, so she can develop up to a 5* level.
