Joel Proves Himself A Worthy Competitor To The Very Best
Showjumpers In The World

Joel, the eleven-year-old gelding sired by Morningside
Stud's KWPN approved stallion Ekstein, again proved
himself a worthy competitor to the very best
showjumpers in the world with a second place finish in
the lucrative Grand Prix of Brabant (1.60 metre) in

The class, and an Audi A4 automobile, were won by the
gelding Priobert de Kalvarie under American rider
Leslie Howard. Joel, under his breeder/rider/owner
Gert-Jan Bruggink, placed second and took home euro
12,000 in prize money. Third place and euro 10,000
were won by the 2000 Olympic Gold Medal winner De Sjiem
under Jeroen Dubbeldam; fourth place and euro 7,000
went to European Gold Medal winner Gladdys S and Ludger
Beerbaum; and fifth place and euro 5,000 were bestowed
on the superstar Esprit FRH under Lars Nieberg.

Joel is one of 16 offspring of Ekstein (Zion x Joost)
competing (inter)nationally at 1.40 - 1.60 metre. Last
year Joel and Bruggink won the Gold Medal in the
European Young Rider Championship, were Reserve
Champions of Holland, and led the Dutch team to victory
in the Samsung Nations Cup World Final in Madrid.

At the same show, the five-year-old approved stallion
President (Clinton - Gudrun) placed second in the
Indoor Brabant Stallion Parade (1.10 metre).
President, a son of Morningside Stud's foundation mare
Gudrun M2S (Voltaire x Le Mexico), a KWPN Keur mare,
was the champion of Italy's stallion performance test
last year and champion 4-year-old showjumper in
Belgium. Along with President, Gudrun has produced
other outstanding offspring such as Kretienne (by
Olympic Team Bronze Medal winner Quidam de Revel),
Champion Mare of the KWPN and the 19th best mare in the
KWPN's showjumping index, and Orashi (by Cruising), a
top ten finalist in the KWPN Young Horse Showjumping
