WoSJ Exclusive; Martinez is preparing for Leipzig

Sunday, 24 April 2011

Alberto Martinez and Leonard are making their last preparations before Leipzig. Photo by Jenny Abrahamsson.Several non-European riders are in Germany preparing for the World Cup final in Leipzig, and one of them is Alberto Martinez from Mexico. The day before his travel to the big showground in eastern Germany he competes at a national outdoor show in Lastrup at Stall Böckmann. The horse he's riding – Leonard (Liberty Life – Gardestern) - was actually born at Lastrup 14 years ago.


Alberto and Leonard also participated in last year's final in Geneva. “But we really didn´t do that well then”, Alberto explains to World of Showjumping. “This year my goal is to qualify for the Sunday, and then we will do our very best in the last final”.
