Nations Cup victory and numerous successes at the CHIO Rotterdam

Another successful weekend (June 23rd - 26th, 2016) for the two GLOCK Riders Hans Peter Minderhoud and Gerco Schröder after a glorious victory at the FEI Nations Cup Dressage and three more places in the CSIO5* tests at the CHIO Rotterdam.

With victory and a magnificent 79.240 %, the KWPN stallion GLOCK’s Johnson TN N.O.P. under Hans Peter Minderhoud, gave an outstanding performance in the CDIO5* Grand Prix. After a slight lapse of concentration on Saturday, in the Grand Prix Special, Hans Peter and “Johnny” came fourth (72.353 %) . With these two top results, they were able to help the Dutch team considerably in winning the FEI Nations Cup Dressage.

Gerco Schröder participated in the CHIO5* of Rotterdam with no fewer than three GLOCK horses. In the saddle of just nine-year-old Ludwigs As x Cornet Obolensky offspring, GLOCK’s Lausejunge, he secured fourth place in the Rabobank Championships of Rotterdam, a show-jumping test with jump-off over 1.55 m.

With the similarly nine-year-old KWPN gelding, GLOCK’s Champions Ludwig, Gerco achieved tenth place in the accumulator test over 1.45 m. In conclusion, he was able to score once more in the saddle of Holstein gelding GLOCK’s Cognac Champblanc N.O.P. in the Longines Grand Prix Port of Rotterdam. After a flawless basic round, in the jump-off Gerco again made a flawless round with the son of Clearway, taking an easy seventh place in this world ranking jumping competition over 1.60 m.
