I am very happy with how my first competition as Senior/Young Rider went!
I had an amazing horse Geronimo who worked his heart out for me during the competition!
I won the Tower track and had a run I am quite happy with where I shot 32 points. You can see the video of that run here:
And the rest of the runs went quite well. It was the first time I could keep stable results in most runs, which for me matters even more then overall scores.
However I did manage to mess up my last run going just over time limit and making a nocking mistake.. so at least always something to improve on…
And I managed to get a bronze medal on the Hunt track!
You can see the (long) video of me on the Hunt track over here:
And on Raid I was 5th.
You can see a video on my last run on the Raid here:
And in the Qabaq I was 7th. A video of my first run you can find here:
There were no awards given for overall winner but overall I got first place following the official IHAA HBAE rules. There was also the Qabaq track using a different rule set. With the Qabaq counted I got second place overall with less then one percent to the first place.
So overall I had a great time at the Grunwald International Mounted Archery Games!
A big thank you to my trainers Wojtek Osiecki
And Mihai Cozmei for helping me search for continuous improvement!
Thank you to my sponsors for allowing me to use the best equipment!

This competition was part of the European Grand Prix Series. With Kimo den Braber I was part of the Dutch team.
I shared Geronimo with Arum Nazlus Shobah from Indonesia!
And of course I had a lot of fun on the ground too!
