The GLOCK’s CSI2* Grand Prix goes to Pieter Clemens!

The first Grand Prix has been decided! Today thirty duos took on the GLOCK’s CSI2* Grand Prix over 1.45 m. Twelve contenders made it to the jump-off of this world ranking jumping event with prize money amounting to 25,000 euros. Ultimately prevailing once again this weekend was a rider from Belgium. Pieter Clemens and his eight-year-old Oldenburg gelding Carinjo T completed the jump-off course in a penalty-free 48.78 seconds, their performance being rewarded with the GLOCK winner’s trophy. "The course was super to ride and my horse worked perfectly with me" said the visibly delighted GLOCK’s CSI2* Grand Prix winner in the interview.

The Belgian pushed Friday’s winner Ben Schroeder (NED), in the saddle on Complemento, progeny of Contender x Voltaire, into second place (0/49.42). In third place was Philipp Schober (GER) on Zandigo (49.64). Over this weekend, the German had already achieved one win and a second place in the CSI2*.
