Tristan as trainer: Indoor beginners’ competition Nederweert

Posted: 05-11-2017

One and a half month after the impressive world championships in Slovenia, Tristan attended another driving competition - as trainer this time. In the indoor arena of riding school ‘De Kraal’ at Nederweert, a cones trial including one marathon obstacle was organised on the fifth of November for the regional amateur drivers. Quite different from the competitions Tristan usually starts. But even though Tristan is driving on an international level, he still tremendously enjoys watching beginners competitions. Today 3 pony drivers performed whom Tristan guides as a trainer. He is as eager and motivated in coaching as when he is holding the reins himself. “It is so great to see that they are making progress,” an enthusiastic Tristan says. On Saturday, Tristan walked the course with his pupils and today he and Jitske were both present to help ‘his’ drivers during the warming up, to give them a few last tips before they enter the competition ground and… to drink a couple of beers to celebrate the prices won.
