2002 is one of the memorable years for Tineke Bartels and Jazz. As a reserve combination for the Dutch Dressage Team Tineke Bartels travels to Spain. However, everything changes when Silvano, the horse of team rider Ellen Bontje, is not fit to compete. Tineke Bartels and Jazz become a team rider and replace Ellen Bontje.
Participating at the World Equestrian Games is a once in a lifetime experience.
With the good results during the National Championships in Nijmegen, the steady performance during CHIO Aachen and a fifth place for the Dutch Team in Spain at the WEG (29th individual) we can honestly say that 2002 was a memorable Jazz Year!
