Holsteiner Results: Silver weekend for many Holsteiners

In France, the USA and the United Arab Emirates, Holsteiners secured top placings this weekend:

After Edouard Schmitz (SUI) and Quno by Quo Vados-Cash and Carry (Witt Pferdezucht GbR, Wellinghusen), mare family 776, who already took second place in the World Cup show-jumping in Amsterdam (NED) last weekend, have now again been successful over 1.60 meters in the Western European League: Namely in Bordeaux, France, where they again jumped to silver. The 23-year-old and his Holsteiner are therefore entitled to a starting place for the World Cup finals in Omaha (USA).

Doolys by Cannavaros-Lantaan (Heiko Büttner, Schafstedt), dam line 2599, came into the sport with Dirk and Hannes Ahlmann. The Dane Lars Bak Andersen is now in her saddle and secured second place in a 1.50 meter show jumping test in Bordeaux.

Also decorated with silver, Michael G. Duffy (IRL) and Cinca left the lap of honor after the 1.50 meter competition in Sharjah (UAE). Peter Wylde is responsible for breeding the Casall-Carthago mare from line 318D2.

In the USA, more precisely in Wellington, Cashew CR by Cassini II-Quinar (Georg Clausen, Rabenkirchen), mare family 4539, and Alex Matz (USA) second in a 1.50 meter course.

The Contact Me-Cambridge son Confu (Kai Gerken, Lasbek), line 4705, and Laura Kraut (USA) took second place in a 1.60 meter Grand Prix in Wellington. It was followed by Celina BH by Canstakko-Carthago (Lonnie Bechmann Schultz, Rödding/DEN), line 3323, and Mimi Gochman (USA) in fourth place as well as Oak Grove's Carlyle by Casall-Corrado I (S.C. Sofino, St. Vith/Recht), stem 1986, and Daniel Coyle (IRL) in fifth place.

Janne Friederike Meyer-Zimmermann had her Cornela by Cornet Obolensky-Caretino (Friedrich Meyer, Nottfeld), tribe 4847, saddled. The half sister of the Holsteiner champion stallion of 2021, Esmeraldo by Emerald, finished fourth in a 1.45 meter class.
