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.

He proved twice-over, however, that while a fight against some of the greats is a challenge, he is up to the task. Minikus bested a star-studded order on Sunday to collect first with Arino Du Rouet, as well as second and sixth in the $50,000 Horze Equestrian Grand Prix presented by Zoetis at HITS Saugerties. With 13 jumping efforts, Florencio Hernandez's (Mexico City, Mexico) built a course that served dual purposes – welcoming a field of both green and experienced horses. "For that mix, it was the perfect course," said Minikus.

Quotes and thoughts after the Rolex Grand Prix in Aachen

christian-citatChristian Ahlmann was very happy with the win and the fact that Codex One is back in super form. Photo by Jenny Abrahamsson. The winner - Christian Ahlmann - was asked about his tactics as the first to go in the jump-off: Go as fast possible or to play it more safe? “Something in between... I wanted to put the pressure on my colleagues. They are all fast so I tried to put the pressure on but still be clear."


Christian on his partner Codex One that was out with an injury during the winter; "The last show was in Lausanne. We gave him a lot of time to recover before we started slowly with the Z-Tour in Lanaken with some small classes. He jumped the big class in Hamburg and then in Rotterdam. Step by step he came back to his old shape. From the first moment here this week he did a really good job - like last year. He does well in this ring and he was fresh enough today to do three clear rounds. Now he is back in shape!"

This time it did not end so well though, and both Katrin and Firth of Lorne had to be transported out of the ring to get medical treatment – Katrin to the hospital. Firth of Lorne has been examined and as it currently looks there are no serious injuries.
