HKTeamHi everybody,


On our second day here in Incheon, the horses all hand walked and enjoyed a relaxed day. The team physio worked on the horses and our team vet watched all the horses trot up. Other than being tired, all the horses were in good form. The Hong Kong jumping team then stayed to cheer on our only Hong Kong dressage rider! We finished up the day with a great Korean BBQ dinner full of laughs!

7-citatIreland's super talent Bertram Allen won again in Lanaken with Barnike. Photo by Jenny Abrahamsson.Gold medalist Bertram Allen, who also won the final for 6 year olds last year on his horse Barnike: “I did a few indoor shows with Barnike after Lanaken last year, and then she had a long break. I brought her back in January and did a few shows with her. She was quite hot, so it took a bit time to get her back into good form. Actually it took a bit more time than expected, because she was so fresh – but when she goes to shows more frequently she gets better to ride.”

6-citatGold medalist Christian Ahlmann was full of praise for his horse Hui Buh, that he has only had for two weeks. Photo by Jenny Abrahamsson.The winner Christian Ahlmann on his gold medal horse Hui Buh: “I bought half of him from the breeders two weeks ago. When I tried him I had a good feeling, but he didn't have so much experience so I send him to a small show with my rider and I jumped him here one time two weeks before the championship. So I thought I would give it a try and take it step by step with the qualifications. He gave me a really good feeling here, also in the jump-off so I thought I would try to go for it. He did an amazing job, he was really clever, he was fighting and he gave me some really good signs for the future.”

Someone else broke him in, and after that I got him to ride. We did the championships for Dutch bred horses together, and ended third. He was clear every day there. He is about 1,78 m high so he is a very big horse with a huge canter."
