Adelinde Cornelissen Withdraws Parzival Before the Freestyle

It was a short comeback of Adelinde Cornelissen (NED) and Parzival, who had their first competition this year at Rotterdam and finished the Grand Prix of the three-star tour in third place. Now the Dutch rider has decided not to ride the Jazz son in the Freestyle. “He definitely is very fit,” Cornelissen explained, “and very lively, maybe too much so. He was surprised by so many people so close to the arena and was quite nervous. Therefore our performance had some untypical flaws. It wouldn’t bode well for his future to bring him back to the arena under these conditions. I know that from the past and have since become more careful. It wouldn’t be fair to Parzival.”
