Jos Lansink and Cavalor Valentina Van’t Heike

Karim El Zoghby’s former horse has joined the Belgian’s stables to support Cavalor Valentina Van’t Heike, who recently placed seventh in the Mechelen World Cup Grand Prix.

Lansink has also acquired Ensor VDH Pléville, the property of the French Valérie Allix.

After a good start under Timothée Anciaume’s saddle, the eight-year-old grey heads back to Belgium, the country of his birth he left when he was six months old.

Still in Belgium, Ludo Philippaerts bought Falco van de Noordhoek, although it is as yet unknown which of his twin sons Nicola or Olivier will ride him in competition.

Britain's Tim Gredley invested in four horses, enabling him to start his season in Florida at the Winter Equestrian Festival in Wellington.

Billy On Show, Newsflash, Armona and Boomerang crossed the Atlantic to join Gredley and his new stables next to the showground.

And Pilar Lucrecia Cordon bought Coriana vh Klapscheut after a successful loan from 2008 Olympic champion Eric Lamaze, during which the relationship between the mare and the Spanish rider blossomed.

Finally, Robin Hood, previously owned by Christian Liehberr, will be ridden by a Qatari. The Swiss recently bought two new horses as compensation.
