Christian Ahlmann fastes in the jumping competition with a winning round
After taking second place in the Prize of North Rhine-Westphalia Christian Ahlmann was almost more or less consoled with a weekend at Aachen that he had so much looked forward but which got off to a bad start. Today, he has plenty of reason to cheer again.
Ahlmann rode his Zangersheider-bred Caribis Z who has been consistently successful over the past months to victory in the jumping competition with a winning round in a time of just 44.33 seconds. He was followed by the Swiss Olympic gold-medallist, Steve Guerdat, in second place with the Selle Francais mare, Ulysse des Forets (0/44.54 seconds). Ireland’s speed specialist, Bertram Allen, finished third with his 13-year-old Kannan daughter, Molly Malone V (0/44.81).
Ahlmann was not the only German rider to be placed in the competition. Laura Klaphake came eighth with Silverstone G (4/46.23), Christian Kukuk finished ninth with Limonchello NT (4/46.23) and Felix Haßmann came tenth with Balzaci (4/46.96).
