Kirchhoff to ride for Ukraine

Wednesday, 17 April 2013

Ulrich Kirchhoff will ride for Ukraine in the future. Photo by Jenny Abrahamsson.Ulrich Kirchhoff will in the future ride for Ukraine. As already reported back in March, Kirchhoff has been out competing on Alexander Onischenko’s Cabachon (Casall x Concerto) on the Toscana Tour – and also on other horses belonging to the Ukrainian billionaire, such as Verdi (Andiamo x Libero H) and Canevaro (Cellestial x Capriol). A change of nationality has now been confirmed by Kirchhoff himself, and the former Olympic champion from 1996 will now be seen flying the Ukrainian flag instead of the German. It is expected that Kirchhoff will ride Pius Schwizer’s former top horse Carlina (Carvallo x Landgraf I), which was sold to Onischenko in the end of March.

“This gives me new possibilities. It provides me with the necessities needed to be at the top again. Now there is the chance to ride at championships again,” Kirchhoff says in a press release.
