Koen Vereecke and Kasanova de La Pomme take Magestic 1.60m Grand Prix win in Wiesbaden!

Former Belgian champion Koen Vereecke concluded his successful competition in Wiesbaden with the icing on the cake. In the 1.60m CSI4* Grand Prix, he jumped to the ultimate Grand Prix victory with the 14-year-old Kasanova de la Pomme!

Halfway through the jump-off, Vereecke sharply beat the time of Anna Maria Kuhlmann. Vereecke stopped the clock at 54.56 seconds, which was about three seconds faster than Anna Maria Kuhlmann and the 13-year-old Pegasus Deau Re Mi (Deauville van T&L).


Earlier, Nicola Pohl won the 1.40m class. As the penultimate to start, she finished in third place with one jumping fault. Riding the 13-year-old Catz de Sulpice (Tresor de Virton), the German was eventually succeeded by Yuri Mansur.


The Brazilian was the last to start with his 16-year-old Vitiki (Valentino). The pair was fast but also knocked down one rail. First to start the jump-off, Antonia Pettersson Häggström completed the top five riding the 13-year-old Zara de Laubry Z (Zandor).
