2011

YES! – TREDJE ÅR I TRÆK!
For tredje år i træk blev Annette og GAMBLERS ZIPSATION i 2011 placeret helt på toppen af Europas APHA Amateur Masters Zone TOP FIVE liste.
Og det på trods af at Dharma startede sæsonen med at skade sit ben og måtte holde 12 ugers pause i begyndelsen af årets showsæson.
Annette sluttede alligevel året som en klar vinder med 60 point, – hele 30 point foran nummer to på listen.

Annette og Dharma afsluttede 2010 showsæsonen i Zone 12 (Hele Europa), med både et flot APHA Number Four i OPEN, – samt et APHA Masters Amateur CHAMPION-Certifikat for anden gang:


7 x Highpoint Certifikater fra PHCDK i 2010


Annette og Dharma afsluttede showsæsonen med flot trofæ.

Gamblers Zipsation sluttede som NSBA Scandinavia HORSE OF THE YEAR 2010 i Western Pleasure, som eneste danske hest blandt alle trofævinderne.
Dharma har desværre her i vinter pådraget sig en alvorlig skade på det ene bagben og er derfor idømt “Boks-ro” i mindst 8 uger. Så hun måtte kun få lov at snuse til sit nyeste trofæ ud gennem boksvinduet. Men vi håber selvfølgelig på at det voldsomme snit i benet når at hele op inden den kommende sæson, så hun kan vende tilbage igen, uden mén af oplevelsen.
Annette og Dharma havde jo en fuldstændig forrygende sæson i 2010, hvor de stort set vandt alt hvad de startede i. Så det vil være temmeligt surt for dem at skulle blive hjemme fra showene i år. Men naturligvis kommer helbredet i første række, så vi kæmper nu en sej kamp for at pleje Dharma på alle tænkelige måder,

YES! – Annette gjorde det igen!
Denne gang blev det HELT øverst i toppen af Europas bedste Paint Horse ryttere!
Opgørelse af showsæson 2009 er nu officielt meldt ud fra APHA i USA. Og i den forbindelse er Annette igen blevet inviteret til USA, for at hente hele 2 top trofæer, i forbindelse med 2010 Fall World Championship Show i Fort Worth, Texas.
Annette blev bedst placerede Amateur Masters i hele Europa, med titlen:
“MASTERS AMATEUR CHAMPION, ZONE 12, 2009”.
Men ikke nok med det. I Open divisionen blev hendes hest, GAMBLERS ZIPSATION samtidig hele Europas næstbedste Paint Horse, idet den sluttede året med titlen:
“OPEN RESERVE CHAMPION, ZONE 12, 2009”
Så for trejde år i træk ligger Annette på APHA’s Top Five liste for Europa. I 2007 blev det nemlig til en trejde plads med Somemore Good Toys, i 2008 blev det til en fjerde plads med samme hest.
Alle Top Five vindere fra hele verden bliver som bekendt inviteret til Texas for at afhente deres flotte trofæer. Så nu glæder vi os igen til at komme derover og hilse på de andre glade vindere som vi plejer at hygge os med omkring vores oplevelser.

Hardy Oelke

En af vores gamle bekendte i Tyskland, Hardy Oelke, dækkede i år European Championship, for APHA og han insisterede på at bringe et interview med os, da Annette om tirsdagen netop havde vundet sin guldmedalje. Dette blev samtidig til en snak om hvor mange år vi rent faktisk har deltaget i de tyske mesterskaber og europamesterskaber. Hardy har skrevet adskillige bøger om Paint Horses og Western Ridning, gennem sit liv. Her er hvad Hardy skrev under “News” ved dette års mesterskaber:

Of the many fine accomplishments we were able to watch today, one feat stood out to those who have been following the Paint show circuit in Europe for a longer period of time, and that was Annette Mortensen’s well-deserved win in the amateur junior western pleasure. Annette and her husband Viggo operate their Circle M Farm in Denmark and have been coming to Paint shows in Germany since before there was a German Championship show, let alone a European Championship show.

They first came in 1988, and have been hooked ever since. What made this a very special win for Annette was the fact that her champion mare, Gamblers Zipsation, was bred by the Mortensens. They had bought a Quarter Horse mare in Texas that had a belly spot and had left her at Simons Show Horses to be bred to Zippos Sensation. Then they kept their fingers crossed hoping for a filly – which is what they got! The rather fine-boned mare had some leg problems as a three-year-old, but came out in good form this year and won the Danish Championship before coming to Kreuth. It’s been a great day for the Mortensens, who were enthusiastically applauded by their fellow countrymen!

Og den tyske version:

Unter den vielen tollen Leistungen, die es heute zu sehen gab, sticht eine insofern hervor, als dass die Gewinnerin der Goldmedaille, Annette Mortensen, zu den „alten Hasen“ im deutschen und europäischen Paint Circuit gehört. Sie und ihr Mann Viggo sind aus Dänemark und waren schon 1988 auf das Paint Roundup gekommen, das damals in Niederzeuzheim stattfand. Damals hatten sie einen Hengstjährling geshowt, der sich als homozygot herausstellte und viele bunte Nachkommen gezeugt hat. Annette wurde heute Europameister in Junior Amateur Western Pleasure – und zwar auf einem Pferd, das sie und Viggo selbst gezogen haben. Die Mutter, eine Quarter- Stute mit weißem Fleck auf dem Bauch, hatten sie in Texas gekauft und bei den Simons‘ von Zippos Sensation decken lassen. Das Resultat war Gamblers Zipsation, die Annette heute zum Gewinn der Goldmedaille ritt! Schön, wenn so treue Besucher auch der deutschen Shows und der Europameisterschaft Erfolg haben!
