The highlight of the season opening at the Glock Horse Performance Center in Austria was Sunday’s CSI5* GLOCK’s Grand Prix worth 344,000 euros. “Of course a 5-star course is challenging; on top of that, there are lots of good riders and horses here. Meanwhile, the ground in the hall is completely new and the horses are jumping really superbly. I’m sure we’ll see some fantastic sport,” commented GLOCK rider Gerco Schröder before the competition.

Forty-two horse-and-rider combinations came to start in the GLOCK’s Grand Prix, of whom fourteen qualified for the jump-off. The list of riders read like a Who’s Who of the show jumping scene, and there was a corresponding sense of excitement as the fourteen best rode all-out for Grand-Prix-victory.

Crowning himself “best of the best” in the CSI5* GLOCK’s season opening 2019 was the winner of the World Cup in Leipzig, current number seventeen on the world ranking and definitely one of the best riders in the world: Christian Ahlmann (GER). Aboard the 10-year-old stallion Clintrexo Z (Clintissimo Z x Rex Z), Ahlmann recorded the winning time of 40.42 seconds to take the first prize of 86,000 euros. 

“I’d like to pay a huge compliment to my horse. He’s done a fantastic job today. I took great risks and he dealt with it all perfectly. I’m really rather proud of him,” was Ahlmann’s delighted comment on this fabulous success.

The second place went to Marlon Modolo Zanotelli (BRA) and the 11-year-old stallion Icarus (Douglas x Sioux de Baugy), with a time of 42.10 seconds in the jump-off. Third place went to Austria, as Max Kühner and 14-year-old Cornet Kalua (Cornet Obolensky x Platin) were able to celebrate another top placing at the Glock Horse Performance Center having completed the jump-off in 42.42 seconds. 

Earlier in the day, in the CSI5* 1.50m GLOCK’s Perfection Tour, Denis Lynch (IRL) and Pretty Little Liar (Indoctro x Emilion) recorded their second win of the weekend picking up more important world ranking points.
