Quotes from the 7-year-old final in Lanaken

Sunday, 30 September 2012

Andreas Kreutzer rode her before. She was here in Lanaken as a five-year-old where she had the fastest time in the jump-off, but the last one down. She is very competitive, but a bit special also in the stable. She is a quite fast horse with a big stride.”

Florian on today’s course; “I think the course was ok. I mean it is the World Championship so it is supposed to be big. It started off nice and then after the water the horses got a bit strong so the last line away from the entrance was a bit difficult.”

Rene Tebbel; “I competed the mare in Aachen for the first time, and this is our second show together. After Aachen she went back home to her owner and I got her back four weeks ago. It is a really good horse and she jumped optimal today. I did underestimate the time a bit in the jump-off. Now the plan is that the mare will stay in my stable. She will get a couple of weeks off and then we will start with the Youngster Tour.”

Mattijs van Asten; “My horse was sold to Sweden as a foal and then  I bought her last year. She did the Swedish Championship for six-year-olds there, but she is still kind of green. It was a fair course today and I am very happy with the horse. It is a horse that would be quite interesting to keep because I think it has what it takes, but we will have to see how things turn out.”
