Douglas Lindelöw (SWE) and Casquo Blue (Chacco-Blue x Carthago Z) pleased the home crowds in Gothenburg when winning Friday evening’s 1.50m class against the clock presented by ATG.

Lindelöw was almost a second faster than his compatriot Henrik von Eckermann (SWE) on Peter Pan (Perigueux x Escudo 19), while Germany’s Daniel Deusser and Jasmien vd Bisschop (Larino x Chin Chin) followed in third. Fourth place went to Pius Schwizer (SUI) with Vient Tu du Rouet (Pezetas du Rouet x Dollar du Murier) and fifth place to Bryan Balsiger (SUI) with Twentytwo Des Biches (Mylord Carthago*HN x Kalor du Bocage).  

It was a very happy Lindelöw that met the press after his win, telling about Casquo Blue and his plans for the future: “I have been riding Casquo Blue – or Casper as we call him – for a little over a year. He developed very well last year and went quite quickly up in the big classes. But I took it a little bit slow since I didn’t want to push him, he makes the big fences easy. This year I think we can try a bit more,” Lindelöw explained. “This is the last indoor show of the season, then he will get a break before we start outdoors. I would say some Nations Cups and then we will see, we have a big championship this year and I aim to make it hard for the Chef d’Equipe.” 

Henrik von Eckermann was also pleased with his 10-year-old Peter Pan. “Peter Pan is a horse that belongs to the Tovek-family. They bought him as a 4-year-old at an auction. He already did some really good things as a 9-year-old, but he was a quite weak and narrow horse. At the end of the season last year he didn’t feel great, so we gave him a bit time to build up and get muscles. Now he feels really, really good.” 

Third-placed Daniel Deusser is in the lucky position that he is already qualified for the Longines FEI World Cup Final in Las Vegas, and is not in Gothenburg to chase points. “However, the World Cup is the main competition this weekend and everyone is looking forward to that class. It is also my goal to get a good result there. Long-term, Jasmien will have a couple of weeks off and maybe do one or two shows before I will take her to the final in Las Vegas,” Deusser said. 

“Jasmien is one of my best horses, and has been very consistent over the last couple of months. She is a very clever horse and for her it doesn’t really matter if the course is tricky, she can handle quite a lot,” Deusser concluded.
