Thursday, 24 July 2014 CSI5* CSI2* CSIYH1* CSIAm-A

He’s done it again! Filippo Moyersoen’s (ITA) triumph in the CSI5* opening!

Today was the first difficult test for the riders of the CSI5* Tour. The nicely-flowing course presented a height of 1.45 m for the 5* opening of superstars and was tackled by no fewer than 83 duos. Twenty nine active riders remained error free with the big winner being Italian rider Filippo Moyersoen.

In the saddle of his nine-year old Contendro daughter Loro Piana Biricchina Bella, he succeeded in completing a simply ideal round and his time of 59.89 seconds was not to be beaten by his competitors. Thus, following his ex-aequo victory in the GLOCK's CSI3* Grand Prix in January this year, today he could celebrate his first unshared success at the GLOCK HORSE PERFORMANCE CENTER.
Olympic winner Steve Guerdat (SUI) also tried to beat the time of the Italian rider, but the Swiss rider, with his eight-year old mare Catalina CH, had to content himself with second place, with a course time of 61.59 seconds. Omer Karaevli (TUR) with Rabane de Sury shone in third place with 61.67 seconds.
Evergreen Hugo Simon (AUT/St) rode some highly motivated rounds with both, C.T. and Freddy 7. This was rewarded by seventh place with C.T. (0/62.92) and eleventh with Freddy 7 (0/67.86).

GLOCK Rider Gerco Schroeder (NED) consciously decided on a calm ride for his CSI5* opening with GLOCK’s London and stayed easily error-free over the course (43rd place).
