Hold onto your hats, CCI5* season is just getting underway!
Next up on the 2023 5* tour is the German stop, Longinues Lumühlen Horse Trials, located in northern Germany just to the south of Hamburg. A strong entry list for both the headlining 5* as well as the complementing CCI4* has just been revealed, featuring members of the reigning Olympic and World Championship gold medal-winning teams, the reigning individual World Champion, the reigning individual Olympic gold medalist, as well as a strong contingent from the U.S across both divisions.
View the full CCI5* and CCI4* entry list here.
It’s a juicy one, and some notable highlights from the 5* list include:
- 2022 Luhmühlen winners Felix Vogg (SUI) and Colero
- A heavy threat from Great Britain, lead by Tokyo and Pratoni team members Laura Collett (London 52, Dacapo), Yasmin Ingham (Rehy DJ), and Oliver Townend (As Is, Tregilder, Cooley Rosalent). Other contenders include Kitty King and Vendredi Biats, rerouting after an unlucky tumble at Badminton, Pippa Funnell with 2019 Burghley winner MGH Grafton Street as well as Billy Walk On.
- A new 5* ride features for world #2 rider Jonelle Price (NZL), who takes the reins on former Cathal Daniels ride L.E.B. Lias Jewel. This 13-year-old Irish mare by Limmerick has contested the 2021 European Championships in Avenches as well as started this event in 2022 with Cathal, but will be seeking a first 5* completion this weekend.
- World #1 Tim Price brings forward his 2022 Boekelo winner, the 11-year-old KWPN gelding Happy Boy, who despite his 5*-debutant status is a serious threat to finish the weekend on a mid-20s dressage mark.
- A strong showing from the U.S., with six riders including recent Kentucky 5* champion Tamie Smith, who brings forward the Guariglia’s Solaguayre California for a debut at the level, and Boyd Martin with the Annie Goodwin Syndicate’s Fedarman B. Boyd has also re-routed Tokyo and Pratoni partner Tsetserleg TSF (the Turner family) after an early penalty pick-up on cross country at Kentucky. These riders are joined by Katherine Coleman on 5* debut horse RLE Limbo Kaiser, Sydney Elliott and QC Diamantaire, and Matt Flynn and Wizzerd.
- The U.S. will also have representatives in the 4*: Dan Kreitl and Carmango will use their free flight from Dutta Corp. earned at last year’s USEF National 4*-L Championship, accompanied by Hallie Coon and Cute Girl.
- While we won’t be joined by German heavy hitters such as Michael Jung or Ingrid Klimke in the 5*, we will see both riders as well as reigning Olympic gold medalist Julia Krajewski in the CCI4*, which is also used as the German National Championship division. 2022 Kentucky winner fischerChipmunk FRH, who is being saved for Paris this season and will focus primarily on short-format events with Michael, will feature in this division.
