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.”

So I just ride here once a week. In the end of july and beginning of august I started to ride her to qualify for the Bundeschampionat and she did that on the first try. At the Bundeschampionat she was number seven after being clear in all rounds. She really wants to go clear. She is very clever and easy to ride. This is our seventh show together.”
