Our former horses jumped amazing at the European Championships in Vilamoura
Last weekend three of our former horses achieved amazing results at the FEI European Jumping Championship CH-J-YR in Vilamoura. Highlights have been the team silver medal of Qitana VDV and two top seven rankings in the individuals of Qitana VDV and HH Fireball!
The 14yo mare Qitana VDV (auction horse 2015 „High Society“) and her 13yo rider Giovanni Vincoli (ITA) performed fantastically well in the Children classes and won team SILVER. Qitana VDV and Giovanni have been the only rider of the Italians with a double clear. In the Individual ranking of the European Children Championships, they finished seventh (our of 92 competitors)- this is quite amazing!
HH Fireball (auction horse 2015 „Flexible“) was ridden by Tom Wachman (IRL) in the junior classes. They showed incredible great rounds: After a fourth place (out of 102 competitors!) in the first qualifier they were double clear in the Nations Cup. HH Fireball and Tom were so so close to the Gold medal, but sadly they had one fault in the final. At the end they finished on a brilliant fifth place individually at the European Junior Championships.
Lasse Nölting (GER) enjoyed his first European Championships in the saddle of his amazing gelding Lazio. The 16yo rider and Lazio showed amazing rounds in the challenging junior classes and impressed in every round. At the end Lasse has been the best German rider and finished on rank 35 our of 102 of the best European riders. What a great result!
Congratulations to the rider, trainer, horse owner and all related persons!
