Adelindes egna ord om beslutet att bryta: "Har gett allt för mig"

Adelinde Cornelissen sätter Parzivals välmående i första rummet. Därför valde hon att utgå under gårdagens Grand Prix efter att valacken, som blivit biten av någon insekt, inte kändes helt okej.
  
På sin Facebooksida berättar Adelinde om våndan efter att hon tidigt på tisdagsmorgonen funnit Parzival i boxen med en svullnad på höger sida av huvudet och med feber. Han hade blivit biten av någon form av giftig insekt. Från tisdag morgon och fram till starten på onsdagen gavs Parzival mycket vätska, febern gick ner och svullnaden minskade. Man bad även FEI om lov att byta starttid inom laget för att ge Parzival ytterligare en dag för återhämtning, men fick avslag.
  
Valde att komma till start
Efter att ha rådgjort med flera veterinärer och känt på Parzival på framridningen valde Adelinde att starta, för lagets skull, men hon utgick en bit in i programmet:
”Min kille, min vän, hästen som har gett allt för mig under hela sitt liv förtjänar inte detta… Så jag hälsade och lämnade arenan”, skriver Adelinde.

"My story....
Lots has happened...
The first days in Rio went according to plan: a relaxed flight, stabling good, training good. Parzival feels happy and fit.

Until yesterday morning... I planned to train early on Tuesday morning, so I was at the stable at 6am. Saying good morning to Parzival, I saw the right side of his head was swollen, he had been kicking the walls. I took his temperature:he had a fever of over 40 degrees Celcius, but he still didn't look sick. He was eating and drinking and while walking I had a hard time keeping up with him, as always...

Jan Greve came right away and after double checking with the vets here they concluded he was bitten by an insect or spider or some sort of animal which produces toxics.

To get the toxics out of his system we gave him fluids. From 6.30 to 15.45hrs we kept him on this. It helps the kidneys to clean up the toxics out of the body. The vets at the clinic took swaps from the nose and checked the blood. The temperature dropped gradually and by 15.30 it was 38.4... We then took x-rays from the jaw and echoed the area. Just making sure..All ok.

At the end of the day the fever was down and I handwalked Parzival a bit. He looked a lot better and the swelling of his head was at least 1/3 the size of this morning...

Then difficult descisions came... We requested the FEI if we could swap starting places within the team, so Parzi could get a day to recover. Competing on thursday in stead of wednesday. But the FEI declined. 
At that point I didn't want to compete anymore... Parzival's health is more important than anything else in this world!

I slept at the stables, checking up on Parzi every hour... I was not going to leave him alone! Of course I didn't get any sleep...

Main thing, this morning temperature had dropped to 37.5! And the swelling again had come down a bit..

New difficult descisions to make.. 
I had decided yesterday I was not going to compete, but now the temperature was back to normal, he looked fit, was eating and drinking good, I also didn't want to let the team down... In the back of my mind knowing we had no reserve combination here..... What to do?

Between 7am and 8am we were allowed to ride in the arena. 
I discussed with Jan Greve and Johan Rockx and decided we were going to walk and trot under saddle for 10 min and see how he was...

And so we did... We went to the arena, rode a few laps and he looked happy and fit. Coming back to the stables the temperature was still down...

Again difficult descisions... What to do? He is fit now, but you know what happened yesterday... Nobody to fill in my place if I would withdraw, letting the team down.

Questions questions... What is wise? I discussed with several vets and the team coach.. The FEI vets came and checked up on him around 10am. All gave green light to compete.. We decided I would give it a try. The fever was down, which means the toxics are out of his system. There is still a bit of swelling in the jaw, but we cooled it all the time and the swelling gets less...

I agreed to give it a try. Knowing the story, I took it easy in the warm up and didn't want to ride full. He was ok, although he didn't feel very powerful. Normal of course after a day like yesterday. I walked a lot to save the energy.. When I entered I already felt he was giving his utmost and being the fighter he is, he never gives up... But in order to protect him, I gave up...My buddy, my friend, the horse that has given everything for me his whole life does not deserve this.... So I saluted and left the arena....."

Henrik nolla – slog chefen Ludger Beerbaum!


Söndag 18/9 kl. 18.33: Henrik von Eckermann på Coupe de Coeur startade elva av de 20 finalryttarna och gick just nolla igen - vilket ekipage! Henrik har faktiskt slagit sin mentor Ludger Beerbaum, som lånat ut hästen till honom, redan. Det såg extremt mjukt och stadigt ut, vi får se vilken placering det räcker till.
