ANDELST/BIDDINGHUIZEN – As of 2020 Leida Naber (14) will be part of the ACSI Eventing Team, established in April 2019. “That’s almost unbelievable, isn’t it? Who gets such a great opportunity? With only 14 years of age, being asked to join such a great team”, Leida Naber reacts happily.
ACSI Peter Parker to Leida
Leida Naber immediately gets to ride a top horse: the famous ACSI Peter Parker, the Olympic partner of her mother Alice. ACSI Peter Parker ran Boekelo six times, won the Dutch Championship in 2013, 2014 and 2015 and individually ended 6th in 2017.
Leida says: “I can’t wait to mount him, I think it’s great! I’ve secretly hoped for it, but now it’s really going to happen!”
Alice Naber is sure about the fit of the future combination: ” Leida and ACSI Peter Parker will certainly make a match. Ozzy, as he is called at home, is very willing to work and very sweet. I think it’s great that Ozzy can now end his career at a lower level with the work he loves best. I will certainly continue to ride him once in a while and I will get double pleasure. From daughter and from horse!”.
The last word is for former military rider and sponsor Ramon van Reine: “Leida Naber has fully come up to the mark this year; making such beautiful debuts with ACSI ZamZam at such a young age. I welcome her to our eventing team with pleasure! We go for a very good year again and are looking forward to the coming season.”
ACSI Eventing Team
The ACSI Eventing team consists of Alice Naber-Lozeman, KNHS-talent teammember Janneke Boonzaaijer, Young Rider A-selection Thierry van Reine and Junior B-selection Leida Naber.
The goal of the ACSI Eventing Team is to give a positive impulse and support the eventing sport in the Netherlands. All top horses at international level are given the powerful ACSI prefix to their names.
