CSI5* LGCT Hamburg 2017

The German Derby Meeting and the Longines Global Champions Tour in Kleint Flottbek, Hamburg, has it all! This traditional show sees equestrian fans flock to see the super stars of our sport, year after year. Here, home favourite Janne Friederike Meyer-Zimmermann thanks Indi for a clear round.

Peder Fredricson's H&M All In was back doing his first really big class after his operation last year. H&M All In seems to be in fantastic form and won the afternoon class on Saturday, that also counted as the GCL final and as the qualification for the LGCT Grand Prix.

H&M Flip's Little Sparrow was stand-in for H&M All In on the shortest prize giving we've ever seen. It was only the winner going into the ring, one lap of honor and then out again. Peder decided not to jump the LGCT Grand Prix with H&M All In, that he was qualified for.

What a day for Rolf-Göran Bengtsson! He won the very last class he did with his super star Casall Ask before the stallion was retired straight after the prize giving.
