Sabrina Arnold reigns in Brussels at BEEM

Bois de la Cambre, Brussels, Belgium. Sunday 20 August 2017.
Held last year for the first time the BEEM (Brussels Equestrian Endurance Masters) gained importance with a European and a World Championship in the second edition of the event. The budget increased from Euro 250,000 to Euro 500,000. – and the slogan of the organisers doesn’t hide their ambition: Brussels Capital of Europe, Capital of the Endurance.


Centre of all activity was Carrefour des Attelages which is in the centre of Brussels, 95 percent of the tracks are accessible for horses all year round 70 percent of the trails are paths exclusively for horses used on a daily base.
On Friday, the first day of BEEM, the fight was on for the European Crown in the CEI3* 160km.
The general question was who from the Spanish armada, led by Jaume Punti, was going to claim the individual tittle.
Endurance World Beem. Spain.But Sabrina Arnold – GER (Tarzibus) led from the first loop and completed the 160km claiming gold with an average speed of 22km/h. The 10-year-old gelding was praised for his fast recovery times. Sabrina (based in Marseilles, France) finished more than 15 minutes ahead of her closest rival. After her victory last year in the European Championship for young horses in Negrepelisse (FRA) with Tsagan Nour this is her second major title.

The Spanish dominance was highlighted Alex Luque (Calandria PH) taking individual silver ahead of compatriots Angel Soy Coll (Tonik de Becherel) and Omar Blanco Rodrigo (Selif de la Nie) and their classification meant the Spanish successfully retained their 2015 team title.

Endurance World Beem. Nice.Alex Luque, individual silver medallist at last year’s World Championships in Šamorín, contested right from the start moving up to second on the fourth loop when world champion Jaume Punti (Twyst Maison Blanche) was eliminated. Angel Soy Coll completed the first two loops in seventh place before working his way up the leader board to take the third step on the podium.
The Italian took team silver, with a surprising Sweden in bronze, their first team Endurance medal for 17 years.
Celebrations at the evening’s medal ceremony held a minute’s silence in honour of the victims from the Barcelona terrorist attack.

Winner Sabrina: “I’m really thrilled to have won today. My horse has a naturally fast recovery rate and he was incredible. We knew it was a good horse but today it was showed how good. I’m really thrilled to have won today. I won the young horse championships last year and I’m hoping to do the same thing again in two days’ time!”

The CEI2* 120km we saw Butti Al Qubaise – UAE (Ffaramir) maintain the lead for the first three loops although his lead at the start of the final loop was a mere five seconds.
But it was Sebastien Valerio – FRA (Gindastik) who turned the tables around and won the race with an impressive lead of more than 40 minutes.
Butti could hold on to the second place with an important gap on Ahmed Al Marzouqi – UAE (Upperkut Charbonniere) finishing third.

Endurance World Beem. Together.For the CEI2* 120km Ladies on the Friday there was no clear dominance throughout the day and it resulted in a sprint finish between three riders: Merethe Neland – DEN (Paragon), Alyazia Al Romaithi – UAE (Holoutaria 37.37) and Virginie Atger – FRA (Quersane Des Pins). This was also the order at the finish line.
And these were the comments of the winner: “Three weeks ago, I was asked if I’d ride. Today I won on the amazing horse, Paragon! Totally surreal. An excellent performance especially of the horse, but also of team and rider, if I have to say it myself. The entire last loop of 23 km was a long sprint, which only went faster and faster!”.
Saturday was the third and final day of BEEM with the World Championship for young horses.

Julia Montagne – FRA (Al Jaimir De Bozouls) was the first leader but was vetted out after the second loop. Sabrina Arnold – GER (Tammam La Lizonne) took the lead and this was a position she never gave up until the very end. It was France Paul – FRA (Abhsik Coutillas) who won a close fought sprint but the horse was vetted out because of irregular gait. Elisabeth Hardy – BEL (Adir Folie) was during the first three loops was in contact with the leaders and at the end of the day got rewarded the second place. Third went to Ana Barbas – POR (Fuico).
