Friday Video from World Equestrian Brands: Derby Domination in Deutschland

The Friday video might as well be sponsored by Reitschule Jung, because the Terminator has been garnering some serious airtime recently. Last week, we delved into the secret to Michi’s success, and this week, we get to enjoy the results.

The Derby class at the Stuttgart German Masters is a spectator favourite and attracts top riders from across the continent. Michael Jung scooped his eighth win in the class riding seven-year-old Corazon, because of course he did, and he made it look spectacularly easy, too. If you reckon you’d get lost about a quarter of the way into this course, you’re absolutely not alone. Michi’s lightening-fast clear in 40.03 seconds propelled him into the lead ahead of Ireland’s Esib Power and Doonaveerah O One, and frankly, I’d just like to ask them both which D-ring is most practical for attaching a sat-nav to.

In true Michi fashion, he hasn’t gone to Stuttgart just to contest this class: He’s also competing in the showjumping classes and doing very well against a world class field. One day we’ll find something the man can’t do — I, for one, am hedging my bets that he’s a dreadful dancer.

As a practical aside: don’t watch this video just prior to going cross-country schooling. Your heart will tell you you can execute some gnarly rollbacks. Your horse will tell you otherwise.
