Today we got to know that a few horses will be switching riders in the future. Unita ASK (f. Corrado I) will not be ridden by Rolf-Göran Bengtsson anymore. Besides that, Luciana Diniz and Aymeric de Ponnat will be welcoming new young talent at their stables.
From now on, Unita ASK will be ridden by the Brazilian rider Yuri Mansur. The 13-year old mare was ridden by Bengtsson at the highest level. This duo were a part of the Swedish victory in the Nations Cup in Falsterbo in 2016, jumping two clear rounds. This combination was also selected to represent Sweden at the Olympics of Rio. The change of rider for Unita happened because Rolf-Göran Bengtsson stopt working with Stutteri Ask.
Winningmood of Luciana Diniz will welcome his own daughter, Isabeau vd Dorperheide, at his stable. This nine-year old mare was ridden by Ludo Philippaerts, Louise Van Laer and Viktor Daem previously before she left to the French rider Tomothée Anciaume. Diniz debuted this BWP mare a 1m40 class.
We know as well who will be the next rider of the 7-year old mare who got auctioned during ‘The Ten’ auction in the Azelhof earlier this week. The daughter of Bamako de Muze was ridden on an international level by Joe Clee. No one less than the French top rider Aymeric de Ponnat will be ridding this SBS horse from now on.
