E-mail Print PDF

Willem-Greve---Carambole-47Carambole impressed a lot in Rotterdam this year. Photo by Jenny Abrahamsson.The eight year old approved stallion Carambole (Cassini I x Concerto II) is sold. Willem Greve will keep the ride on the horse though as it is Gerard and Gerda Korbeld, co-owners of Willem's other ride Ukato, that has purchased the Holsteiner.


Carambole has been very successfull in his first 1,50 classes, and there has been placed several bids on the stallion. Willem Greve says to that it would be understandable if Carambole's owner's had sold him abroad for a lot of money, but that this scenario is nice for everyone. He also explains how happy he is to be able to keep riding Carambole in the future.

Tracy Fenney finished another year of HITS horse shows doing what she does best – winning! The Flower Mound, Texas native has found Grand Prix success throughout the year at HITS Ocala, Saugerties, and Culpeper and made her third appearance in the Pfizer $1 Million Grand Prix this past September. As another year at HITS Culpeper comes to an end, Fenney aboard MTM Farm’s MTM Centano sealed a victory in Sunday’s $40,000 HITS Grand Prix, presented by Pfizer Animal Health, to earn her ninth Grand Prix victory at HITS in 2012.


“There’s no better way to end a year than with a win,” said Fenney. “Even though the course was challenging with some difficult turns and questions all across the field, this turned out to be such a good class.  Overall, I’m just really happy that we had such a great summer both here in Culpeper, as well as in Saugerties, and it’s nice to finish up victorious before heading back down to Texas. I’m so lucky to have great horses who work very hard to compete and win.”

Ben Maher’s horses arrive safe in Rio de Janeiro

ben-tripple-xTripple X arrived safe in Rio after an unexpected 23 hours in Dakar. Photo by Jenny Abrahamsson.After an unexpected 23 hour stopover in Dakar, Ben Maher’s horses Tripple X and Aristo Z finally arrived in Rio de Janeiro yesterday. The plane taking the horses to Rio developed problems, and had to wait for parts from Frankfurt. As the horses didn’t have the necessary papers in order, they could not get off the plane in Dakar – causing some serious headache for Ben, who tweeted about the unfortunate series of events. In the end the plane could leave Dakar, and Tripple X and Aristo Z arrived safe and sound in Brazil. Ben took to Twitter to thank Athina and Doda de Miranda – the organizers behind the event in Rio – and their team for their help.

That wasn’t to be all though, as Ben tweeted this morning about his own flight: “Delayed flight from Heathrow, apparently the crew are lost! I hope we make our connection to Madrid”.

Preview on the 2012/2013 World Cup season in the Western European league

Hugo-Simon-CT-2502Hugo Simon was the first rider ever to win the World Cup final in 1979 - here on the young and promising CT in 2012. Photo by Jenny Abrahamsson.With the kick-off of the Western European league World Cup season for 2012/2013 right around the corner, WoSJ takes a look at some historic winners, last year's season and what it will take to win the prestigious final in Gothenburg next year.


Historic World Cup-winners

The first winner of the World Cup Jumping title was Austria's Hugo Simon on the legendary Gladstone (by Goetz), who in 1979 won the trophy in Gothenburg. Seventeen years later in Geneva Simon would yet again take the title home – this time on another legend of a horse; the special chestnut gelding E.T. FRH (by Espri). The following year – 1997 – Hugo Simon was back in Gothenburg to claim the title again. These three wins have made Hugo Simon historical; he is one of four riders who have recorded a hat-trick of victories.

Quotes from the 7-year-old final in Lanaken

E-mail Print PDF

podium-7Rene Tebbel, Florian Meyer zu Hartum and Mathijs van Asten. Photo by Jenny Abrahamsson.The winner - Florian Meyer zu Hartum on his ride Chacciana; - “I have been riding Chacciana since April. Andreas Kreutzer rode her before. She was here in Lanaken as a five-year-old where she had the fastest time in the jump-off, but the last one down. She is very competitive, but a bit special also in the stable. She is a quite fast horse with a big stride.”

Florian on today’s course; “I think the course was ok. I mean it is the World Championship so it is supposed to be big. It started off nice and then after the water the horses got a bit strong so the last line away from the entrance was a bit difficult.”
