WoSJ Exclusive; Lars Nieberg about his plans for 2011

Tuesday, 24 May 2011

Lars Nieberg is lucky to have some good horses at the moment. Photo by Jenny Abrahamsson.The German rider Lars Nieberg has his plans ready for 2011. He wants to take part of the Global Champions Tour and if the horses are in good form the goal is the European Championship in Madrid in September.

“I am lucky to have some really good horses at the moment,” Lars explains. Lord Luis (Lasino x Alcatraz), who has been with Lars for the last one and a half year, is his best horse. Then he has the eighteen year old mare Lucie (Landadel x Gralsritter). “Unfortunately Lucie is already eighteen… But she is in a very good shape at the moment so I hope that I can still ride her for some time.”

Actually he is better indoors than outdoors, because of the open waters outdoors. I never know if he will jump that or not. Even though I have been training water with him for years he is still not totally safe, which is a pity, because otherwise he would be the perfect horse for championships.”

Do you have any good horses for the future? “I have Galippo (Giorgio x For Pleasure), a ten year old that I really hope for. He is still lacking routine, but he’s got all the capacity and is very careful. Apart from him I’ve got a lot of good seven and eight year old horses at home.”

At home, which is at the Gestüt Wäldershausen in Homberg, Lars has about 80 horses. Twelve of these horses are competed and ridden by Lars. The others are breeding stallions, mares, foals and young horses. “We have a seven year old stallion, Contagio (Colman x Lordanos), that seems to be getting some really good offspring. Contagio is also one of the horses that I will show in the sport in the future.”
