Tuesday, 27 March 2018 CSI5* GCT Mexiko

GLOCK’s London is back!

The world’s best riders and horses came together in Mexico City from March 22nd till 25th for the first sporting highlight of Longines Global Champions Tour. GLOCK Rider Gerco Schröder made the long journey To Mexico together with GLOCK’s Cognac Champblanc and his Olympia and world championship horse GLOCK’s London. After an extended break, the BWP stallion of Nabab De Reve has recovered, proving it with two top results amongst the elite riders.

On Friday Gerco took the 16-year-old chestnut stallion, still relaxed and with no speed pressure, penalty-free through the GCL course over up to 1.60 m. But on Saturday the GLOCK duo delivered fast and ambitious rounds. Gerco scored penalty-free with GLOCK’s London in the Global Champions League team finale, a CSI5* test over 1.50/1.60 m, coming seventh and, in the Longines Global Champions Tour Grand Prix of Mexico, the duo came sixth.
