Rounding off the third day in Treffen was a top-class affair in the CSI3* GLOCK’s Perfection Tour over 1.55 m. In this, the third of a total of four world ranking competitions, 29 rider-horse duos were on the list of starters. The class took place over two rounds, with the best eight from round one qualifying for the second round. It was an enthusiastic and well-versed audience that completely filled up the grandstand in the comfortably heated indoor riding arena of the GLOCK HORSE PERFORMANCE CENTER Austria, and each participating duo was welcomed to the arena with hearty applause.

Securing the winner’s purse in this selective three-star jumping test was Christophe Vanderhasselt from Belgium with two magnificent rounds. In the saddle on his Belgian warmblood mare Identity Vitseroel (Air Jordan Z x Darco), after having taken the third place in Gaston GLOCK’s Championat on Friday, he triumphed with an unbeatable time of 50.89 seconds.

“My horse has loads of energy and is clearly at ease here, so I’ll be riding the Grand Prix with her tomorrow,” said the winner. “I’m very happy to have managed a three-star win on my very first visit to the GHPC Austria and I hope to have the chance to come again.”

Malin Baryard-Johnsson from Sweden, Olympic silver medallist of Athens 2004, riding H&M Indiana (Kashmir van Schuttershof x Animo's Hallo), also delivered two penalty-free rounds and lined up in second place with a time of 52.55. In third place were Marit Haarr Skollerud (NOR) and 11-year-old Nicole (breeding unknown).
