Carlotta 232 triumphing under Emanuele Gaudiano in the GLOCK’s Youngster Tour

Today, for the first time in the CSIYH1* GLOCK’s Youngster Tour Opening, seven and eight-year-old young talents were able to test themselves. In line with the age of the horses, the course over 1.30 m had been built leaving space for canter, a fact that led to 20 penalty-free rounds for the 34 participants. Best timing by far was delivered by seven-year-old Oldenburg mare Carlotta 232 under her rider Emanuele Gaudiano (ITA). The world’s number 23 piloted the mare, bred from Chaccomo x Cento, to the finishing line in 50.96 seconds. "Carlotta is a winner", said Emanuele in the interview. "Even when she was only five or six years old we were able to count numerous victories and I do hope things will go on like this.”

Second place was taken in 52.31 seconds by Delvecchio, the eight-year-old progeny of Zirocco Blue VDL, under Marc Bettinger (GER). Third was Belgium’s Nicola Philippaerts with her similarly eight-year-old BWP mare Inouk P (Thunder van de Zuuthoeve x Darco). GLOCK rider Gerco Schröder (NED), with the enormously powerful jumper GLOCK’s Debalia, daughter of Numero Uno, also achieved a clear round and took eighth place in 63.63 seconds. Following right behind were Alessandra Reich (OÖ) with her Oldenburg-raised, eight-year-old gelding Quatro Rubin (Quintender x Couleur-Rubin) as best red-white-red rider (0/65.55).
