GLOCK’s Small Tour Final goes to Theresa Kriessmann

For the first time this weekend at the International Show Jumping at GLOCK HORSE PERFORMANCE CENTER it was about a finale. Sixteen participants in the CSI1* GLOCK’s Small Tour Final competed for victory in an accumulator competition with joker over 1.20 m.

The full score of 65 was achieved by only six duos and, in the end, victory went to Styria. Day by day, Theresa Kriessmann was able to raise her game in the saddle of her 17-year-old Bavarian gelding Rochester Bounty and, after 10th place in the opening and second place on Friday, she managed to secure first place today. Clearly happy in the winner’s interview she stated “Finally today it worked out. I really made an effort and my horse did so too. Here everything is so perfect, so well organised. Simply extraordinary!”

Right up to the last starter, Birgit Peintner (AUT/K) and her horse Gaspari held the lead in the final, only to be pipped to the post by Theresa Kriessmann with a time of 50.82 seconds. Nevertheless the Carinthian rider can certainly be happy after fourth place in the opening and yesterday’s victory. Andreas Hofmann (AUT/T) and his Colman-offspring Colombo Z succeeded in achieving placings on the first two days, finishing today’s finale in 53.52 seconds for third place.
