Caroline Wimmer dominates the GLOCK’s Medium Tour!

The excitement was high right to the very last starter today at the CSI1* GLOCK’s Medium Tour. For this jumping competition accumulator with joker over 1.30 m, course designer Frank Rothenberger had built in many opportunities for tight turns. And one person took advantage of all of them. Following their second place yesterday, Carinthia’s Caroline Wimmer and her eleven-year-old Athen succeeded in raising their game again today. A full 65 points and a dream time of 51.06 brought them their longed-for victory at the GLOCK HORSE PERFORMANCE CENTER.

At her winner’s interview, the talented female rider commented "It’s wonderful for me as a Carinthian to win in Carinthia, and in this wonderful atmosphere on top. Both horses and riders simply feel good here and I hope I can win once more tomorrow."  

Second place in the CSI1* GLOCK’s Medium Tour also went to Carinthia. After a long intervening period, Andreas Bauer, in the saddle on the 16-year-old Holsteiner Lando 281 and having scored 65 points in a time of 53.03, was indeed forced to concede defeat by a narrow margin after all. Dr. Georg Hladik (AUT/NÖ) and his always dependable Parcival Z (Picasso Z x Feinschnitt I) rode skilfully to achieve maximum points and, with 55.23 seconds, ultimately third place.

Ria de Janeiro under Mario Tschaitschmann (AUT/K) jumped to fourth place (65/63.63), Patrick Prömer (AUT/St) and Chicobello secured seventh place (55/57.69), Kathrin Kurat (AUT/K) and her Latina 0160 were eighth (55/71.00), Jenny Fehleisen and Silver Flow ninth (33/68.29), Susanne Kresch (AUT/St) and Heartbreaker 4 eleventh (25/53.66) and Ulrich Domaingo (AUT/K) and Cool Cookie twelfth (25/54.39).
