Reflection from SICAB

Av L Viktoria M Sandberg - 25 november 2012 22:04

SICAB is over and it has as always been a intense and wonderful experience. Great to meet friends and collegues and celebrate a year of work, collaborations and friendship. I only regret I did not manage to see everyone, this event is big and the hours seems like minutes rushing by when there is so much you want to talk, do and see. This year the competiton was celebrated in a slightly smaller scale, SICAB normally has around a 1000 horses competing during the week but this year the number of participants was around 500. I enjoyed very much seeing some beautiful horses and movers. Even though you can see a red thread in composition of both mares and stallions there is still unequal quality of especially the movements. You still see hocks that go up and out behind (like trotting horses) and many are not diagonally correct. Some of these still get good scores because they move with big gestures which I think it is a mistake when the horse do not have a correct coordination front and back and the movement naturally produces a hollow back and lack of rhytm. A classy typical spanish horse moving with grace and ease is such a divine sight and if you want an example of what I am referring to do look up this years Campeón Adulto Mejores Movimientos 2012 - YERBERO - Reproductor Calificado and Joven Reproductor Recomendado for dressage and Campeón Adulto Funcionalidad SICAB 2011. Yerbero is pretty close to the perfection of a typical classy spanish horse moving with grace, ease and power. Neither of his parents has ever competed, to me he is not a horse produced by calculation of bloodlines nor merits from parents (neither has competed not even once), he is simply a grand horse, bred in the spanish manner and one that came out with distinction thanks to a spanish professional breeder with a good eye for quality. As I have no pictures from SICAB I post these where Yerbero is winning the goldmedal in FIECVAL, The European Championships 2011, next to Festivo that got the bronze.
Yerbero (middle) scored 28,333 in the funcionalidad, outstanding!

Lyckades får se en liten snutt av Yerbero på webbtv under prisutdelningen i söndags. Jag blir som lite knäsvag när jag ser en häst med sådana rörelser. Dessutom ser han ut som en drömhäst. Roligt att få lite info om honom av dig.
Är mycket tacksam för att ni som varit på plats vill dela med er av era upplevelser, tankar och känslor om hästarna, till oss som inte kan vara med.

Hej Ingela, ja det finns många fina hästar med championtitlar men av dessa är det ändå få som har verklig rörelsetalang, en rejäl kroppsbyggnad utan att bli för grova, vackert huvud och riktig spansk klass. Det är en riktig fröjd för ögat och känslan att se honom i rörelse!

So have we said goodbye to Kiko our beautiful baby. Nature has had its course and wisely decides what is to be and what is not. And we have to accept and let go. Kiko was born too early, he was premature and weak and was not able to eat himself. I go...
