Laura Collett and London 52 win the Longines CCI5*-L of Luhmuehlen

 

With immaculate cross-country and show jumping rounds Laura Collett and London 52 held onto their dressage score of 20.3. Kitty King (GBR/27.2) and Yasmin Ingham (GBR/27,9) completed the British podium in the Longines CCI5*-L of Luhmuehlen earlier today.

With an outstanding performance in the final phase, Laura Collett and London 52 added yet another victory to their exceptional career. Talking after the presentation Laura said, “London is a sensational horse, a horse of a lifetime and I’m so lucky to get to ride him! He knows when it matters. He went like a dream in the dressage was so brave in the cross-country and today he showed off to the German fans. When the distance isn’t perfect he just jumps higher. Our partnership is the key, it’s all down to trust and a special bond – and I am so proud of him.”

A rail would have been costly for Kitty King but Vendredi Biats jumped like a dream and with a beautiful round they held onto second place. About their performance she said, “I didn’t feel any pressure today. It’s been the perfect week so far and I would have been happy with any outcome. He felt great in the warm-up and I really enjoyed our show jumping today. He had a blast yesterday and absolutely loves jumping. I couldn’t be prouder of him!”

Reigning World Champion Yasmin Ingham also showed everyone how it’s done, producing a fantastic clear with Rehy DJ. Talking afterwards she said, “I have a lot of trust in piglet. He’s such a super horse and I’m so happy to ride him. We call him piglet, because he’s always to happy. We share a special bond, I have had him for a long time now, I got him when he was six and we grew up together – from the Young Rider European Championships to 5-star level.”

Eventing High Performance Coach Chris Bartle was full of praise for “his” riders and said of their performance, “Of course they have super horses, as they keep pointing out but they are just brilliant riders, they build them up so well and have developed the special partnership between horse and rider. And this partnership is key!”
