Thursday, 03 December 2015 World Cup and Grand Prix Premiere

GLOCK meets Salzburg

Detailed and loving planning form the credo of the Gaston and Kathrin Glock family.  As a contribution to outstanding equestrian sport events, since 2013 some select guest performances have been offered outside the GHPC in Treffen, which are known as the Gaston Glock’s Championates. Gaston Glock, founder of GLOCK HORSE PERFORMANCE CENTERs in Austria and The Netherlands, is now expanding his commitment to equestrian sport. For 2015, the Gaston and Kathrin Glock family have taken over patronage not only of four Gaston Glock’s Grands Prix outside the GHPC but also of that for the first Dressage World Cup in Austria: the Reem Acra FEI World Cup™ Dressage in Salzburg.

“The Name Glock stands for perfection, which we also implement in equestrian sport. Through sponsoring the Dressage World Cup in Salzburg, we want to support Austrian equestrian sport in the context of a long-term promotion”, says GHPC managing director Kathrin Glock.

World Cup premiere in Austria!
Thanks to generous support from the Gaston and Kathrin Glock family, in the context of the Mevisto Amadeus Horse Indoors in Salzburg, one leg of the Reem Acra FEI World Cup™ Dressage will be taking place in Austria for the first time. It goes without saying that the two Dutch GLOCK riders, Edward Gal and Hans Peter Minderhoud, will not miss out on this highlight in Mozart’s home-town. They will be participating with GLOCK's Voice and GLOCK's Romanov and are very much looking forward to their debut in the arena at Salzburg.

4th Stop: Gaston Glock's Grand Prix Salzburg
To conclude the 2015 season, following Graz, the Magna Racino and the Vienna Masters, the Gaston Glock’s Grands Prix are coming to Salzburg. At all venues, they are a true paradise for horses, riders and guests. Yet paradise but for a spell. And to this end, precisely for the duration of Gaston Glock’s Grands Prix, a GLOCK world of its own is created. The show jumping course consists of specially designed GLOCK obstacles, decorated with beautiful, typically GLOCK-style flowers. The GLOCK cups for the top-three-ranking riders in this championship come from goldsmith Martin Schaller’s workshop, while seeded riders will receive GLOCK sashes and GLOCK gifts. The GLOCK music for the prize ceremony was composed by famous Dutch composer Joost Peters and, for the award ceremony for the winner and seeded riders, Austrian television star Christian Clerici will be joining the show.
