Quotes from Stuttgart and a surprised winner

Sunday, 20 November 2011

The winners in Stuttgart; the lovely Gotha & Ludger. Photo by Jenny Abrahamsson.Ludger Beerbaum was really pleased with the win and was also surprised; "My hair is getting grayer and my wins are not as many as before. If someone would have told me yesterday that I would win today, I for sure wouldn´t have believed them."

Steve Guerdat on his runner-up position; "I am really pleased with the result, but as the last rider with a fast horse I normally should have won. But how can I be other than pleased when I'm after Ludger and ahead of Rolf!"

Rolf on Quintero La Silla; "Quintero La Silla was really strong and wild in the beginning of the week so I have been working a lot with him this weekend to get him calm and it paid off. I couldn´t do as fast a turn as Ludger and Steve as Quintero is a bit difficult to turn," Rolf laughed.

The show organizers on Lauren Hough's condition [she got injured on Thursday after a bad fall]; "She is not very well, but is getting better. She was released from the hospital today and could go home to her place in Germany where her mother is at the moment. Lauren has been going through several surgeries and will probably have another one next week."
