The now 12-year-old stallion Chianti's Champion (Champion Du Lys x Cornet Obolensky) has moved to Ludger Beerbaum Stables. 

Chianti's Champion has previously competed at the highest level with Netherland’s Frank Schuttert as well as Ireland's Peter Moloney, jumping at the World Equestrian Games in Tryon in 2018 under the Dutch flag and at the European Championships in 2019 under the Irish flag. This week, Chianti's Champion did his first national start in Riesenbeck with Beerbaum's team member Christian Kukuk in the saddle. 

"We have Chianti’s Champion in our stable for his owner Princess Haya,” Christian Kukuk tells World of Showjumping. "I did my first show in Riesenbeck with him this week, and the feeling was very good. At the moment, with no bigger shows in the calendar, we don't really have a plan made up. However, I am really looking forward to do bigger classes with him when things get back to normal. Chianti’s Champion has proved himself at championship level, so hopefully there will be some Nations Cup appearances for us in the future for Germany. Even though our partnership is new, I feel like there is already a good connection and communication between us."
