Quotes after the Championship for 5-year-old horses

Sunday, 30 September 2012

Pieter Clemens, Toni Hassmann and Gerben Morsink. Photo by Jenny Abrahamsson.Toni Hassmann about his winning horse Con Cara (Con Air x Franklin); “Con Cara is not placed at my stable, but in the Warendorf-area where I rent boxes. So I just ride here once a week. In the end of july and beginning of august I started to ride her to qualify for the Bundeschampionat and she did that on the first try. At the Bundeschampionat she was number seven after being clear in all rounds. She really wants to go clear. She is very clever and easy to ride. This is our seventh show together.”

18 year old Pieter Clemens on his ride Casuality X (Cassini II x Chellano Z); “ I have been riding him since the beginning of the year. He is very scoopy and really careful, nice to ride. I actually really wanted to win,” Pieter said with a laugh. “I am Ludo Philippaerts cousin and ride at his place. I mostly do the young horses and then when they are ready they get to Nicola, Olivier and Ludo.”

Gerben Morsink about the story of his horse Coursy (Carthino Z x Guidam); “It is a fantastic story with this horse. The father was third placed yesterday in the Sire of the World and the mother was the first horse I ever rode here in Zangersheide. It is ten years ago and I was just 14. So I know both parents really well and I have a good connection with this horse. It is a small and sensible horse with a big heart.”
