E-mail Print PDF

_K7X3685 There were few dry eyes during the emotional retirement ceremony of Carsten-Otto Nagel’s fantastic partner Corradina 2 in Aachen on Thursday. Corradina 2 jumped to individual silver and team bronze at the Europeans at Windsor in 2009, to team gold at the World Equestrian Games in Kentucky in 2010, to team gold and individual silver at the Europeans in Madrid in 2011 and to team silver at the Europeans in Herning last year. She has been with Nagel since she was a youngster, and in addition to her medals Corradina 2 can look back on a career full of Grand Prix and Nations Cup wins. We wish one of our all-time favorites a fantastic and peaceful retirement! All photos by Jenny Abrahamsson.

Since Angelica Augustsson jumped into the spotlight on Mic Mac du Tillard with a sensational World Cup win on home soil in Gothenburg in 2011 – hitting the headlines world wide – a lot has happened in her life. First of all the 27 year old Swedish rider added her first senior championship medal to her tally, as she together with her team mates took home the bronze medal at the European Championships in Herning last August – again riding Mic Mac du Tillard. Success, and the extremely special bond to her four-legged partner Mic Mac, did not stand in Angelica's way of making a big change in her life though – as she started up 2014 moving from Dietmar Gugler's Gestüt Prinzenberg in Germany to Enda Carroll's Ashford Farm in Belgium. Closing an eight year old chapter with Gugler, Angelica turned the page to start up with a blank one – but quickly discovered that the pages were filling faster than she thought they would.

The WoSJ show review; Billy Twomey on Bolesworth International

E-mail Print PDF

BillyBolesworthThis week top Irish rider Billy Twomey does the WoSJ show review on the Bolesworth International – a traditional show in the UK that for this year's edition was upgraded to an international three star show. The hard work with the event definitely paid off, and as Billy discovered – it was a beautiful show with its own identity!

 

"Many aspects of this weekend's show felt more like something on a five star, rather than a three star. The brand new international ring at Bolesworth was super, with the grass changed to Andrews Bowen wax surface which was very good to jump on – and that takes any kind of weather. We also had a large warm-up, one for flatting and one for jumping – providing plenty of space.

Thank you Corradina!
