The second week of October, our horses took part in their last national competitions of this season, except those classified for SICAB, competition that takes place in November, from the 16 to the 21.
We were all the week at Cecyl (Segovia), starting on October 12 and 13 with the Final of the Selection Tests for Young Horses, presenting four horses in the 4 and 5 years old tests.
In the 4-year-old test, we saw a great improvement of our rider Raúl Arcos with both horses. CAPITÁN CAD got the qualification of VERY GOOD, and OLIVA CAD the one of GOOD. In the 5-year test, OLÉ CAD achieved the qualification of GOOD, while CORSARIA CAD, ridden by María Gómez, achieved one of the only two EXCELLENT at this level, finishing both tests in second place with averages of 75,800% and 76,600%. Corsaria CAD is also included in the ANCCE list of Recommended Young Horses for Breeding.
In the CDN3 * held in the same facilities on the 14 and 15, we highlight the final test of OLÉ CAD, at the 5-years-old level, in which it obtained a third place with an average of 76.300%, which may have been a winner position if we take into account the penalty for an error of the pair, even so, we cannot be more satisfied with this result as the last test of this season for Olé.
In the 4-years-old level, CAPTAIN CAD also improved his marks a lot, obtaining 76,000% and a fifth place in the final test. OLIVA CAD showed very nice and correct tests, with some details to improve for future competitions.
After this non-stop week, our horses are already resting for a few days on the farm. Both Capitán CAD and Corsaria CAD are classified for the final of the world championship at SICAB in less than a month.
