Ida van de Bisschop is the GLOCK’s Youngster Tour winner

The winning horse in today’s CSIYH1* GLOCK’s Youngster Tour was bred in Belgium, is seven years old and goes by the catchy name of Ida van de Bisschop. Beneath her rider Douglas Lindelöw (SWE), this elegant mare showed enormous potential in the jumping in two phases over 1.40 m for seven and eight-year-old horses, galloping over the finishing line in the second phase in 37.34 seconds. "It seems all good things come in threes" said a laughing Douglas Lindeloew in the winner’s interview. "This is my third time at the GLOCK HORSE PERFORMANCE CENTER and now at last we’ve earned victory!"

Yesterday it was Pius Schwizer (SUI) who took the GLOCK’s Youngster Tour Opening with his eight-year-old Tina de l’Yserand, daughter of Allegreto, whilst today it was a penalty-free 38.87 seconds that brought him an ultimate second place. Third place was secured by reigning Olympic winner, world and European champion eventing rider Michael Jung (GER). In the saddle on the powerful jumper fischerDaily Impressed, he proved that he is also at home in the show jumping arena and delivered an immaculately clean round in precisely 39.00 seconds.

Neo-Austrian Max Kühner (T) had saddled up Electric Touch, an eight-year-old mare from Zangersheide, descended from Untouchable Z x Ti’s Voltaire, and achieved fifth place in 40.29 seconds. Finishing close behind was GLOCK Rider Gerco Schröder (NED), who piloted the sensational jumper, eight-year-old GLOCK’s Champions Ludwig through the course in a penalty-free 41.10 seconds.
