In memory of

This week, the showjumping world received sad news as Ludger Beerbaum announced that his top mare Chiara 222 (Contender x Coronado 3) had passed away. 

Beerbaum and the 16-year-old mare had eight years of success together at the highest level of the sport. The pair won the CSI5* Grand Prix of Chantilly in 2016, the CSI5* Grand Prix of Doha in 2016 and 2014, the CSIO5* Grand Prix of Mannheim in 2015 and the CSI5* Grand Prix of Donetsk in 2013. In addition they recorded numerous podium finishes in prestigious Grand Prix classes all over the world. Last year they took five-star wins in Valkenswaard, Verona and Doha while in March this year they topped a CSI5* 1.60m class in Doha - in what would turn out to be their last competition together. Beerbaum and Chiara also contributed to many German team-successes over their years together, such as the silver medals at the European Championships in 2013 in Herning and 2015 in Aachen. In 2014, the pair were Vice Champions at the World Cup Finals in Lyon. 

With this photo special we look back at some of many magic moments of Chiara's career. Thank you Chiara for all the memories.
