Last weekend it was enjoyable during CDI Compiègne. Finally, several top riders were able to leave home to build up competition rhythm towards the Olympic Games. One of them was The Swedish Antonia Ramel who competed in the CDIO 5* Grand Prix and Grand Prix Special with her top horse Brother de Jeu (by Voice), which was purchased during the Excellent Dressage Sales in 2015.
The combination showed a nice, controlled test during the Grand Prix, which resulted in a score of 73.283%. During the Grand Prix Special, the duo went one step further. Brother de Jeu danced through the arena with even more expression and control. This resulted in a fourth prize with a score of 74.787%.
On the way to the Olympics
In 2015, Brother de Jeu became the auction topper of the Excellent Dressage Sales. The gelding, which was trained by Dominique Filion, left for Sweden for an amount of € 170,000. Antonia Ramel, who is stationed at Patrick Kittel’s stable, became his new rider. The combination already successfully started Intermediaire 2 in November 2017 and made the switch to the Grand Prix in 2018. Currently, the combination belongs to the world top and they will most likely represent Sweden at the Olympic Games this summer.
