Gregory Wathelet and the amazing 11-year-old mare Coree, owned by Judith Goelkel, were the best across the intimidating Aachen courses Sunday afternoon to win the Rolex Grand Prix of Aachen. Over two full courses and a jump-off designed by Frank Rothenberger, Greg and Coree never put a foot wrong, overcoming challenges by Laura Kraut and Zeremonie, Marc Houtzager of the Netherlands, and Luciana Diniz on Fit for Fun in the final jump-off.

“It is simply a dream come true to see my name on the winners’ board in Aachen!” Said Gregory after his win. “It doesn’t suffice to give 100 percent to win a Major. One has to give 500 percent and that is what we did today. My horse was simply incredible.”

A lovely mother/daughter pair of Newfoundland ponies arrived at Winley Farm, courtesy of Equine Rescue Inc. (www.equine-rescue.org). They are presently turned out with the Winley Farm donkeys, Dusty Juan and Red Rascal, who have fallen quite in love with them.

Their job here at Winley will be to accept hugs, kisses and carrots from Ester and Giovanni Mazzarelli’s daughter Carina, along with the occasional pony ride. Information about this little- known breed can be found at www.newfoundlandpony.com. Here’s a sample:

“The ancestors of the Newfoundland Pony arrived with the Island’s early settlers from the British Isles. These ancestors were primarily, Exmoor, Dartmoor and New Forest ponies and to a lesser extent, Welsh Mountain, Galloway (extinct), Highland and Connemara ponies. They were hardy creatures, already well adapted to the harsh climate of the islands of the North Atlantic. Over subsequent centuries, and with little outside influence, the hardiest of these early pony immigrants to Newfoundland interbred and eventually evolved into one common pony type, now recognized as the Newfoundland Pony.”
