No less than three CSI2* events are on in Europe this weekend; in Magna Racino (Austria), Vestfold (Norway) and Oliva (Spain). Yesterday it was Max Kühner, and Victoria Gulliksen who won the biggest classes in Magna Racino and Vestfold respectively. Max Kühner is competing at the Magna Racino Winter Festival in Austria, and took hom the number one spot in the Gold Tour (1.45) on the 10 year old gelding Clooney (by Cardento). It was a speed class, and as number seven to go the German rider stopped the clock at 56.16 which was good enough to win in this 68-rider class. With his win Kühner also qualified for the Grand Prix on Sunday. Koza Lukasz from Poland ended second on El Camp (by Campari M) at 59.72 seconds, while German rider Marcel Marschall and Undercontract (by Andiamo) were third with a time of 61.95.
At the Arctic Equestrian Games in Vestfold, Norway, it was the young and talented Victoria Gulliksen who took home the Big Tour. The win in the 1.40 class came aboard the lightning fast British-bred mare Billy Buttercup (by Vectha), who’s a constant danger for the competitors when against the clock. “Billy Buttercup is naturally fast, and doesn’t use a lot of time in the air compared to other horses,” Victoria explained after her win at 62.04 seconds. Runner-up was another young Norwegian talent; Camilla Storemark on Tiffany IV (by Askari), with the time of 64.28. Dutch rider Leon Kuypers was third on Wot Shot (by Numero Uno).
At the Mediterranean Equestrian Tour in Oliva, the first Gold Tour takes place today.
