31.12.11 Nice end in Mechelen!
annual tradition we went the week between Christmas and New
Year to the Nekkerhal in Mechelen, where the 31st edition of Jumping Mechelen
took place. The traditional
"stallion day" was on Tuesday this year. In the
seven year olds, who were allowed to jump in the main arena,
Dirk participated with the Nonstop son Esperanto van Paemel.
Esperanto and Dirk were the first to enter the ring and a
fresh Esperanto immediately showed what he has to offer with
a nice clear round in which he displayed his scope. As first
combination in the jump-off, Dirk took some risks to record
a good time, which resulted in a 9th place.
Cicero Z van Paemel also appeared for the first time
at the start on Tuesday, in the Sires of The World, the
class which he carried off last year. A fit Cicero clearly
felt like it and jumped a great clear round. In the jump-off
Dirk took the shortest way by making a short turn
immediately after the first jump. A misunderstanding between
the both of them and a fault resulted in an 11th place. On
Thursday they participated in the Grand Prix in which Cicero
clearly wasn't alert enough, because he got a fault straight
away on the first obstacle. Nevertheless we saw a super
jumping Cicero, who obviously had more to offer. It was in
the Last Chance, Price City Mechelen, that Cicero was fully
alert. Dirk and Cicero were one of the 17 combinations who
qualified for the jump-off. They started as the 3rd and Dirk
realized a good clear round. Dirk and Cicero ended CSI-W Mechelen
with a nice 4th place, what promises for 2012.
Camillo van Paemel, who is in property of Starhorses,
jumped in a 1m40 class on Thursday in the two star CSI. Under
the saddle of Thiago Ribas da Costa he recorded a time which
was good for a third place, but a fault on the last fence
referred them to a 6th place.

International Horse Show in Olympia. On the first day they
already started in the 1m50 Christmas Pudding Stakes in
which they managed to qualify for the jump-off.
Barbarossa again managed to keep a clear round and did this
in a time that was good for the 7th place. The 1m55
Earls Court Olympia Christmas Cracker stood on the program
of Barbarossa and Cheronnet the next day. The sorrel jumped
once again a clear round, but they got a fault in the
jump-off which brought them to an 8th place.
the BWP National exterior testing for mares at Agribex
participated several descendants of Cicero. The best place
was reserved for the widely known Cicero daughter Have Patience van het
Westhof. This elegant four year old mare gained a 5th
place in the B class. Have Patience is in property of Dave Coppens

of the first descendants of Cicero Z van Paemel the now
seven year old Eclipse was born by a Skippy II mare.
Like ealier appeared on the website is Eclipse, in property
of Filip Vanlaethem, ridden by Philippe Le Jeune. This weekend
the mare was allowed to accompany him to the CHI Geneva where
she participated in the 1m35 Youngster Tour, which were 2
competitions. Eclipse had a clear round on the first day and
got a neat 7th place. The next day she again jumped a clear
round and managed to qualify for the jump-off. In the
jump-off she gained a quick time, but got an unlucky fault. Eclipse
and Le Jeune achieved a great 6th place.
van Paemel (Darco x Sheyenne de Baugy) was present at the
five star CSIO in Barcelona under the Swiss rider Grégoire
Oberson. On the opening day they started in a 1m40 class
against the clock. Bonanza jumped a clear round, what
yielded a 13th place. The next class was a 1m45-1m50 with a winning round. Bonanza
stayed nicely clear and was placed 5th after the first
round, which he managed to keep after another clear
Bonanza already gained an 8th place in a 1m35 class earlier

Sunday Barbarossa was saddles once more for the
1m50 Grand Prix. The 10 year old gelding jumped again a
clear round and was allowed to participate in the jump-off,
in which the mighty chestnut got one fault. They stranded on
a nice 9th place.
20.11.11 Cicero 2nd in Grand Prix Wieze
a few weeks of competitions in foreign contries, Dirk Demeersman
competed in the three star competition of Wieze. It was the
first time in the Oktoberhallen for the Carthago son Cicero Z van Paemel. Cicero
was still a bit ill at ease in the small ring and had to
leave the 1m45 class with 3 faults. On Saturday Cicero paid
more attention and showed a very nice round. Unfortunately
they got a bad luck fault. Today Cicero and Dirk were
allowed to participate in the 1m50 Grand Prix, who appeared
to be selective as were the past day. Cicero clearly showed
he was in excellent shape with a clear round in which he
displayed his power. That way Dirk and Cicero qualifiedthem
for the jump-off as 1 of the 7 faultless combinations on 54
participants. In the jump-off no one at all managed to stay
clear. With one fault Cicero and Dirk had a quick time which
was good for a fantastic 2nd place.
Maurice Van Roosbroeck and Dylano were the only ones who
could improve their time.

accompanied by our Cicero Z van Paemel,
Diamond's Billy and Bufero vh Panishof. The first day
Cicero started in a 1m50 class against the clock. A good
jumping Cicero proved that the sting is in the tail with a
bad luck fault on the last fence. On Saturday Dirk
participated with Cicero again in a 1m50 class. Once more we
saw a super jumping Cicero, who jumped amply over the
fences. Nevertheless they got one fault along the way, but
thanks to a relatively quick time they stranded on a nice
10th place. On the last day Cicero took care of the 1m45
class with enclosed jump-off under Dirk. He was obviously in
great shape by jumping two clear round in a fast time, which
was good for a great 7th place.

"Cicero Z van Paemel
obtained in the six years that he has registered foals five
times the annual top ten. In 2008 he was right at the top
with 126 descendants. The year after the Carthago-son did
even better and pinched the first place with 170 foals. The
grey gained in six years an average of slightly more than 96
foals a year. For this criterion that is the strongest score
of all 333 stallions. In total he already climbs to a third
place with 580 descendants.
Cicero's performances under the saddle of Dirk Demeersman form
the base for his popularity. In 2010 the combination won the Sires of the World
at the Christmasjumping of

Galisco van Paemel. As well as Gigolo this stallion knew how
to impress on the jump and stayed likewise faultless.

last in the class for seven-year-old stallions. From his first
jump it was clear that Esperanto obviously was in excellent
form. He jumped a great clear round and placed himself for the

high an difficult track. Gigolo van Paemel, the son of Cicero
by Sissi (Sandro x
Argentan), was the first to start with Nick Vrins.
Gigolo immediately showed how it should be by jumping a
great clear round. Although Gigolo made the track look easy,
the contrary was proven because of the fact that he was the
only one who stayed faultless. By that Gigolo gained his
first champion's ribbon and he took the cup home.
