GLOCK’s Undercover injured!
Following a detailed veterinary check-up the sad decision was made: GLOCK rider Edward Gal must do without his best horse, GLOCK’s Undercover. In the team training, the son of Ferro still showed impressive form, yesterday morning however, he moved awkwardly. The vet diagnosed a problem in the cervical spine. Despite the fact that the physiotherapist was able to mobilise the vertebra, a slight inflammation is still causing pain for the KWPN gelding.
“This must have happened after the team training in the paddock or in his box. It is something, which can be treated well by means of corresponding medication and will heal within more or less one week. In order to save him from pain and avoid risks, we have decided to have him now treated by the vet. Fritsie will now stay at home in The Netherlands.
We are really very sorry but to us the horse’s well-being is more important than success.” said GLOCK trainer Nicole Werner and the two GLOCK riders Edward Gal and Hans Peter Minderhoud.
In order to support his team, the ruling world champion Edward Gal will now participate with GLOCK’s Voice in the World Equestrian Games.
