Pius Schwizer wins GLOCK’s Perfection Tour
A distinguished field embarked on the second day of CSI3* International Show Jumping at the GLOCK HORSE PERFORMANCE CENTER. Thirty rider-horse duos had entered to start in GLOCK’s Perfection Tour, which was staged as an accumulator with one joker over 1.40 m. GLOCK Rider Gerco Schröder (NED), in the saddle on GLOCK’s Dobelensky, was the first to ride and delivered the first penalty-free round with a full 65 points, setting the benchmark at a smoothly ridden 58.18 seconds, which ultimately yielded a twelfth place.
Victory, with a best time of 45.31 seconds, went to the GLOCK’s 5* Grand Prix winner of 2015, Pius Schwizer (SUI). In the saddle on his Selle Francaise mare Tina de l’Yserand, the Olympic bronze medallist and Team European Champion had an advantage of 68 hundredths over Wilm Vermeir (BEL). Yesterday the Belgian rider won the CSI3* GLOCK’s Opening Competition and was again placed today riding Hacienda d’Eversem. With full points and a quick time, David Will (GER) and eight-year-old Westphalian mare, Daiane Blue V, took third place.
“I have to take a realistic view of my chances in the GLOCK’s 3* Grand Prix on Sunday. After all, there are lots of good riders here. I have to beat them first.”, said Schwizer with a wry smile in the winner’s interview.
Delivering the best result for the host nation in this morning’s CSI3* GLOCK’s Perfection Tour was Katharina Rhomberg from Vorarlberg and her ten-year-old, Dutch mare Dinadja.
