Viersterren dressuur CDI Lier

International top riders head to Azelhof for CDI Lier

This coming weekend Azelhof in Lier will be entirely dedicated to international dressage.  From March second to March fifth the jumps will be set aside and a dressage arena will be set out in Belgium’s largest indoor arena. The programme includes classes at three-star level as well as classes for young people. Ponies, juniors, young riders and U25 will all be given the chance to compete.

In the three-star competition a number of top names are competing. For our country the Olympic combination Jorinde Verwimp and Tiamo as well as Belgian Champion Jeroen Devroe with Eres DL are taking part. Laurence Roos, the successful U25-rider who recently made the move to seniors, will also compete with Fil Rouge.

CDI Lier is also attracting attention abroad as several well-known foreign names will be competing.  French rider Marie Emilie Bretenoux will bring her Quartz of Jazz to Azelhof. Our northerly neighbours are also sending a whole delegation. We will see Adelinde Cornelissen at work in the Big Tour with Aqiedo. Marieke van der Putten is also coming to Lier with Ambria.


The youth competition will also be very interesting, with top combinations from Belgium and abroad.
