Tuesday, 01 December 2015 CSI5*-W Stuttgart / Oldenburg stallion days

Top places and a glittering parade of stallions

For the GLOCK team of riders, the weekend from November 20th till 22nd revolved around two large equestrian sports events in Germany. Gerco Schroeder started with GLOCK's Zaranza at the CSI5*-W Stuttgart German Masters, while Edward Gal and Marieke van der Putten presented three GLOCK stallions at the Oldenburg stallion days.

On Saturday in the selective Longines world-ranking show-jumping test over 1.50 m, Gerco and eleven-year-old KWPN stallion GLOCK's Zaranza (Karandasj x Heartbreaker) made an excellent seventh place after a penalty-free round. Meanwhile seven-year-old GLOCK's Zonik, four-year-old GLOCK's Toto Jr. and three-year-old GLOCK's Trafalgar danced through the large event hall in Vechta, participating in the Oldenburg stallion days. GLOCK's Zonik (Blue Hors Zack x Blue Hors Romanov) was presented by GLOCK Rider Edward Gal, thrilling the audience just like GLOCK's Toto Jr. (Totilas x Desperados) and GLOCK's Trafalgar (Totilas x Lord Loxley) under Marieke van der Putten.
