Demeersman went to the three star competition in the Polish

were placed 14th. The next day Cicero jumped again a clear
round, after which he got a fault in the jump-off. His best
performance was on Saturday, when he started in the
'middle round' final. Nine combinations managed to qualify
for the jump-off, including Dirk and
Cicero. Cicero stayed far away from the fences and this in a
time nobody could improve. Like that they took the winning
before Jerome Guery and Pieter Devos.

place previous weekend. Dirk Demeersman started with Ciska
van Paemel Z (Cicero Z x Campus) in the 1m30 classes. On the
first day the scopey Cicero daughter jumped twice clear and
ended up just out of the top 10. Also on the next day she
stayed far away from the fences and maintained the 0 on the
the classes for six year old horses, the black brown Gigolo van de Keihoeve
stood out. This Cicero x
Darco descendent managed to convince under the saddle of Gilles Dunon.
On the first day he already gained a 3rd place after a clear

28.10.12 Herciro auctioned for € 60.000
International Sales took place in. Among this collection,
who was put together by i.a. Niels Bruynseels and Nick Vrins,
was Herciro van 't Kiezelhof. This five year old son of Cicero Z van Paemel
by Belle van 't Kiezelhof (Puccini
x Latano I) was described as tall, with a lot of scope and a
superb jumping technique. That Herciro managed to charm the
attendees, ook de
aanwezigen kon bekoren, reflected in the selling price. The
stallion was sold for an amount of €60.000, which made him
the 3rd most expensive auction horse.
06.10.12 Cicero 2e, 3e en 4e in Lanaken
our Cicero Z van Paemel is in excellent form the last couple
of months, he proved once again at the grounds of
Zangersheide in in Lanaken. On Friday he started together
Demeersman in the warm up of the Sires. Cicero and
Dirk belonged to the 9 combinations that stayed clear. They
rode a fluent round, which was immediately rewarded with a
2nd place. The next day the real Sires of The World were on
the programme. The many mistakes that were made and only 7
faultless combinations, showed that the stallions were
dished up with a difficult competition. Cicero and
Dirk also jumped a great clear round and qualified for the
jump-off. Just like in Aalst nobody thought that the time
could once more be improved, but nothing was further from
the truth. Cicero finished in almost half a second faster
than, but unfortunately the last fence went down. So did
they not finish first, but fourth.
that there was also the price-giving of the Z-ranking, a
list that keeps up the performances of all Z-horses all over
the world. That Cicero performed the whole year very
constantly, was rewarded with a great 3rd place on this
ranking, who once again was won by Regina Z.
the world championship for five year old horses was also a
descendant of Cicero competing. The KWPN bred Chicago (Cicero Z
x Heartbreaker) attracked attention under the Czech Kamil
Papousek. The brown stallion showed a lot of power and
jumped both qualifiers clear. In the final he also
managed to qualify for the jump-off, but due to a very short
turn they could not keep the zero on the board.

21.09.12 Esperanto 3rd in the Masters, Cicero offspring
weekend there was a two star CSI organized in manege
De Kraal in Zandhoven. Dirk Demeersman was in company of Esperanto van Paemel
and Ciska van Paemel Z. He started
Ciska twice in the 1m30 classes, that she both jumped clear.
The Cicero daughter showed off her endless power and gained
a 10th place on Friday. Esperanto
van Paemel went ahead in the Masters on Saturday evening. In
which 10 combinations headed off and who has a clear round,
may go through to the next round and every time one obstacle
is raised, chosen by the ridert. After the 4th round the
fences were on a height of 1m60 and the triple bar even on
1m70. Esperanto showed that he had no problem with the
height and got effortless in the jump-off, ridden with 3
combinations. They ended nicely 3rd.
that there were also competitions for young horses. Several
six year old descendants of Cicero participated and left an
impression. On the first day Gissero (Cicero Z x Garanco)
jumped the course as well as the jump-off clear under the
saddle of Jessica Geurts. The BWP approved Galisco van Paemel (Cicero Z x Feinschnitt I vd
Richter) jumped also without any faults, but got a time
penalty in the jump-off with Nick Vrins. The powerfull Gautcho da Quinta (Cicero
Z x Upsilon vd Heffinck) and Catherine Van Roosbroeck were
also placed for the jump-off, in which they got a fence down
and a time penalty. On the second day Gitania VG (Cicero Z x Chellano Z)
was clear under Ben
Beevers, just like Galisco van Paemel. Gautcho da Quinta as
well as Gissero stayed far from the fences, but got a time
penalty. In the final on Saturdat Gautcho managed to impress
again by not making any mistake, but he got a time penalty (video).

02.09.12 Cicero in excellent form
Z van Paemel proved to be in good shape past weekend, by not
touching one fence and returning home with 3 placings.
Together with Dirk Demeersman he was present at the five
star CSI Donetsk in Ukraine. He obviously enjoyed his flight
with the plane because already on the first day they started
in the 1m50 class against the clock, which he ended clear in
a time good for the 9th place. The next day Dirk went ahead
with him in the 1m45 class als 'warming-up' for the next
competition. He guided Cicero calmly faultless and started
him afterwards in the 1m50 class. We once again saw a super
jumping Cicero who qualified him effortless for the jump-off,
in which Dirk had a second iron in the fire with Bufero.
Despite that he was the first to enter the jump-off with Cicero,
he set a good time that three riders managed to improve,
including Dirk himself as the winner. With Cicero he
obtained a nice 4th place then. On Sunday our grey stallion
kept his top form by jumping clear again. In the 1m45 accumulator
against the clock he stayed far from the fences and managed
to gain a 5th place. Spoken about a very successful weekend!

12.06.12 First Grand Prix victory!
fantastic weekend, that is the summary of Jumping
Aalst. Dirk Demeersman went with our two stallions
Cicero Z van Paemel and Esperanto van Paemel to Jumping
Aalst. Cicero, who is in excellent shape the last couple of
weeks with several top 5 places, continued to draw the line.
On Saturday they started in the 1m45 small Grand Prix in
which 15 combinations for sure were allowed to return in the
second round. The pair stayed nicely clear in the fourth
fastest time, by what they could enter at the end of the
second round. In view to Sunday
Dirk decided to ride a fluent jump-off without to many
risks. This was translated in a clear round and a 4th place.
Sunday morning Dirk started off well with a clear round with
Esperanto in the 1m40 class, what yielded them a 9th place.
afternoon the Grand Prix was on the program, which also
consisted of two rounds. Dirk and Cicero were the 11th
combination to enter the ring. A superb jumping Cicero, who
was on top form, jumped a clear round like the day before.
Eventually there were 15 combinations that jumped
faultlessly and Dirk and Cicero were allowed to enter
last but one, thanks to their very fast time in the first
d'Arsouilles and Philippe Le Jeune recorded a competitive
time of which nobody thought anyone could go any faster. Dirk
decided to go all the way and to take risks. With a couple
of very short turns and thanks to Cicero's unlimited power
they managed to finish clear ánd in a faster time. The last
rider was also not fast enough and so Cicero and Dirk gained
their first Grand Prix victory. Really fantastic to see the
apple of our's eye in front with a moved Dirk on his back.
Thank you for this amazing victory!

08.06.12 Cicero 5th in Sankt Gallen
week our stallion Cicero Z van Paemel travelled to the Swiss
five stars CSIO in Sankt Gallen. Cicero came twice at the
start in the 1m50 classes under the saddle of Dirk Demeersman.
From the first day Cicero proved that he was in good shape
by jumping a great clear round with a lot of scope. Dirk and Cicero
also stayed clear in the jump-off in a time that was good
for the fifth place, from the twenty-one jump-off
combinations. The next day the duo was on the way to a clear
round, but a super jumping Cicero got a fault on the go,
which brought them to a 15 place thanks to a fast time.
here for the 5th place of Cicero.
01.06.12 Placings in Nieuwpoort
Nieuwpoort the North Sea Jumping took place last week under
a shining sun. Dirk Demeersman was accompanied by the two
half-brothers, Cicero Z and Esperanto van Paemel. The first
day Esperanto started in the 1m30 class which he ended
clear, with in th enclosed jump-off a fault. Cicero was
saddled up for the 1m45 class against the clock. Dirk and Cicero
took from the beginning a strong pace and stayed clear in a
quick time, which was good for a great 4th place on 62
participants. Cicero who obviously was in shape, got the
next two days each a bad luck fault in the triple, which was
built fairly short for his wide galop. The powerful Esperanto
managed in the 1m35 class, once again against the clock, the
next day to gain a 10th place under Dirk.
