Bertram Allen (IRL) and Cheese W Z triumph in GLOCK’s Youngster Opening
'Youth rules' was the slogan in the opening show jumping event of CSIYH1* GLOCK’s Youngster Tour. Thirty-two riders had saddled their promising young seven and eight-year-old horses and faced the course over 1.30 m.
The youngest duo took the lead in the starting field. The 19 year old superstar Bertram Allen (IRL) let his seven-year-old Zangersheide stallion Cheese W Z (Chatman x Galoubet) gallop forward with consummate ease, caught the ideal distance at every jump and, with a time of 49.01 seconds, relegated his elder competitors to their places.
Even the winner of the preceding CS13* opening, Markus Saurugg (AUT/St), with eight-year-old Spirit 31 (Sir Shutterfly x Balou du Rouet), had to admit defeat (0/49.32). Pius Schwizer (SUI) and the impressively jumping eight-year-old Selle Francaise mare, Tina de l'Yserand, made third place in 50.09 seconds.
After a clear round, Gerfried Puck (AUT/St) was pleased with his eight-year-old KWPN grey horse Poker Face and sixth place. He was closely followed by the seven-year-old Campino (Canturo x Adlantus As), who was presented by Lower Austrian Stefanie Bistan without faults (0/51.88).
