WoSJ Exclusive; Henrik & Allerdings - an unexpected combinaton

Saturday, 05 November 2011

"Yesterday was the first time I ever jumped Allerdings and that went well," Henrik tells us. "I started to ride him on Tuesday and then I rode him Wednesday as well at home before we left for Verona. The reason that I ride him is because Coupe de Coeur is having a break until the World Cup in Stuttgart. Allerdings is a totally different horse compared to Coupe de Coeur, he is kind of spooky."

You are riding Allerdings in the World Cup as well, what are your hopes for that class?

"The goal is to get through the course and then we will see how long that will take us," Henrik laughs. "Allerdings has a huge capacity, but the thing is that I really don´t know him at all!"

Today is the Grand Prix. Who are you riding there?

"I am going to ride the 8 year old Quibell. She was jumping really well yesterday so it is going to be her first time in the Grand Prix. There are a lot of debuts this weekend!"
