Luhmühlen, Day Two: Laura Collett and Mollie Summerland Head British Domination

Laura Collett will be your Longines Luhmühlen CCI5* leader going into tomorrow’s cross-country phase, after a foot-perfect test with her Olympic gold medallist and Badminton winner London 52 (Landos x Vernante, by Quinar Z). They delivered their sparkling test late in the final session of the day, and put to bed two days worth of arguably harsh marking to put a 20.3 on the board — a score that sees them 2.8 penalties, or seven seconds tomorrow, ahead of second-placed Pippa Funnell and MGH Grafton Street, our day one leaders.

“He felt amazing,” says a beaming Laura, who has won on both her previous five-star starts with the 14-year-old, who she co-owns with Karen Bartlett and Keith Scott. “He’s obviously got so good in this phase now, but I genuinely was having a whale of a time in there, because he was just so with me and I can just really show him off now. He went through a phase of being very fragile and now he just loves it.”

But although ‘Dan’ is the consummate showman in this phase, and is so often expected to lead the dressage, he’s still a horse — and horses, no matter how talented, can be unpredictable. Laura was reminded of this moments before her test: “He started off in the big warm-up arena, and he felt really nice, really relaxed — and then I went over to the last, final arena and I totally lost him,” she explains. “He hasn’t done that to me for a long time, and I was getting a little bit nervous, because he just tensed up and totally lost the connection. They said ‘you’ve got three minutes’ and, luckily, he just took a deep breath — so Dicky [Waygood, Team GB Performance Manager] was like, ‘you’ve got him back!’ As soon as he went in the arena, he just knows now, he kind of needs to put on a show. It’s a fine line, but we got it right today.”

Laura’s been getting remote support from her dressage coach Ian Woodhead, and has been putting sage advice from part-time trainer, dressage superstar Carl Hester, into action as well — but that certainly doesn’t mean she’s been spending her time drilling the flatwork. Instead, she says, the key to a great test with Dan is to minimise how much schooling he does.

“We’ve  got a system with him now, and it’s quite difficult to stick to sometimes, because the last couple of days he’s been really fresh and really overexcited about being here,” she explains. “But sticking to the same system that we know works — and keeping me off him is the main thing! I came out this morning and just did some poles, and he felt really good — so it’s just about being brave enough to stick to what we know. He knows the moves, and that’s what we have to trust, so it’s basically about getting his brain right. We went through a phase of overworking him and he got body tired, so we just do different things — hacking and keeping him occupied and getting his body working. We do pole work in the morning, just trot poles and canter poles, not jumping, but it just really relaxes him, and then he can go in and do his thing.”

Particularly special was the appearance of the Holsteiner gelding’s breeder, Ocke Riewerts, who journeyed from rural northern Germany to be reunited with his pride and joy for the first time since London 52 was a foal.

“I haven’t seen him for fourteen years, and I came here just to watch him,” he says. “I’m very happy — maybe tomorrow, or the day after that, I’ll really process what happened today! He was a very beautiful foal, with very long legs, but at the beginning I thought maybe he was too small — but then after four weeks, he grew, and I thought, ‘maybe this could be a good one!'”

While no one else could surpass the excellent 23.1 posted by yesterday’s leader, Pippa Funnell, nor the 26.8 posted by third-placed Kitty King and Vendredi Biats, who also rode yesterday, reigning World Champion Yasmin Ingham certainly put up a good fight with her ever-consistent longtime partner, Rehy DJ. They posted the horse’s five-star personal best of 27.5 to sit fourth going into cross-country, and received particularly enthusiastic cheers from their good-time-gals support crew, helmed by mum Lesley, owner Janette Chinn, and close friend and horse-sourcer extraordinaire Rachel Wakefield. Yas, for her part, was delighted with how ‘Piglet’ — “he lives by food, so it’s Piglet by name, Piglet by nature!” — has continued to improve in this phase.

“I was super happy with that. He’s been getting better and better, which is great — I’m always seeing improvements,” she says. “The last five-star he did was back in 2020 at Pau, and he scored a 28.5, so to come and do a penalty better is really good.”

Although Piglet isn’t necessarily the flashiest horse in the lineup, Yas says that the marginal gains, and working on honing the accuracy, have been the key to cracking the first phase.

“It’s all about the fine margins in dressage and just trying to grab every single mark you can. With Piglet, he’s not the most extravagant horse in the world, but I think he gets all his marks from being accurate and he’s so easy on the eye as well. He’s got such a pretty face and he’s really nicely put together, so I just need to do my job as a rider and pilot him round correctly. And then hopefully, he’ll do the rest for me!”

Yas, who enjoyed a great finish with the gelding at the similarly twisty and technical CHIO Aachen last year, has long had her eye on Luhmühlen as a suitable five-star for the gelding, who she says loves his moments in the spotlight.

“He’s quite funny — he whinnied coming out at the end, like, ‘Everyone is clapping for me!’ which is quite cute,” she says. “I’m really pleased we decided to bring him here, because I’m hoping that the terrain and the ground will suit him. Thinking back to Badminton and Kentucky, they probably weren’t quite for him at this time of year, but I think coming here is a good option. So I’m looking to go and give it our best shot!”

There’s a serious British takeover at the top end of the leaderboard, and fifth place overnight is held by Emily King, who delivered a clear round test with Philippe Brivois and the Valmy Biat Syndicate’s Valmy Biats to earn a 28.4.

One of the greatest joys that can come a rider’s way in this phase is being able to tick all the boxes in the arena that they’ve been able to tick while schooling through the week — and that’s exactly what Emily found she could do today.

“He’s worked really well here this week: the last warm-up he felt mega, and then he just took it in there, which is really nice,” she says. “There’s nothing worse than warming up great, and going in there, and then having them change — and then you have to think about how to counteract things. He’s lovely, and he’s feeling really established at this level now, which is nice — not to worry that ‘is he going to change, is he going to be able to do this?’ He’s pretty cool — I haven’t have him so long in the grand scheme of things, and he’s been late coming into how I ride, so at this rate he feels like when he’s 20, he’s going to be amazing!”

Part of the final polish came thanks to help from dressage coach Ian Woodhead, a last-minute addition to her support team.

“I actually had my first ever lesson with Ian the other week. It’s probably not the best thing to do, change trainers the week before a five-star, but I thought it might be nice to have a bit of different input. And just a few things that he said has really helped just elevate him even more and get me in the groove.”

The fourteen-year-old Selle Français started his 2023 with a bang, winning the Grantham Cup CCI4*-S at a wet Thoresby at the start of the season, and then doing a very competitive test at Badminton last month — again, in seriously wet conditions. Today, the pair got the chance to show what they can do on more consistent footing, for which they were both grateful.

“I think he was quite relieved to be on some good [footing],” laughs Emily. “He’s so powerful, and he’s quite strong, so he can then give you so much power that he can go a little bit off the contact. Then, with the added changing of terrain, that [means] I have to really focus on that — but today he was lovely. That was something I didn’t have to really think about at all, because he was stable [on the footing].”

This is a reroute from Badminton for the pair, who made it to the lake in fine style before Emily opted to put her hand up and save the gelding for another day.

“He’s a powerful horse, and a big galloper, but he’s quite small — he’s not a big horse,” she says. “I really felt the ground just sucking the life out of him at Badminton, and while the time wasn’t a big thing [that day], from where he was at on his minutes I thought, he’s not going to be in the top handful and it was going to be proper hard getting home. I didn’t want to risk anything, and with how he felt, I thought it would be quite easy to risk something. So instead, he just had a quiet two weeks in the field and then just picked up, carried on with his galloping, and came here.”

Laura Collett also holds sixth place overnight on her day one ride, Dacapo, while fellow day one competitors Oliver Townend and Tregilder sit seventh — the best of Oliver’s three rides, after a surprise 31.7 on his final ride, Swallow Springs, which put them into fourteenth overnight.

While we don’t often see many German riders in this class — the four-star here is the German National Championships, and so tends to be a much bigger focus for the home nation — one of the young debutants coming forward for the home side was able to crack that British domination and make a great first impression. Jérôme Robiné and Black Ice certainly aren’t new to Luhmühlen: they came forward for the CCI4*-S last year and were among the stars of the week, sitting second after cross-country and finishing fifth overall, and while it was tempting to return and try to take the win, Jérôme decided to take the next step up this year.

“At the beginning of the year, I thought of coming at four-star again, or going to Aachen with him again, or something like this and then the coaches said, ‘No, you better get out of your comfort zone. You’re good at four-star level; you did it a lot of times.’,” he explains. “And I think that’s good for me to hear — just to get something new. I think I’m old enough and experienced enough, and my horse is old enough  and experienced enough. He’s very good at cross country, and  always gives me a very good feeling, so they say, C’ome on, you can do it!’ So that’s why we’re going to do the five-star.”

Though an inexperienced mistake in the first change cost them valuable marks, Jérôme and his pandemic project produced a test that otherwise belied their inexperience at this level, earning them hearty cheers from throughout the grandstands and a 30.1 on the leaderboard.

“In the end, it was a new experience, and it was really special to be in there,” says Jérôme, who rides as part of the German Federation’s Warendorf training base for younger riders. “The crowd is really on your side and they’re really happy to see a young German rider trying to tackle a five-star. But yeah, it’s all pretty new, and there were some little mistakes I didn’t expect in the beginning, but in the end, you have to ride a test a few times in a stadium on this level and then maybe get it better without mistakes. Today, I was happy.”

Boyd Martin also helped sprinkle a bit of variety into the flags in the top ten with the last of his three rides, the five-star debutant Luke 140. They delivered the final test of the day and earned a 30.1 after recovering from an early mistake in the trot work.

“There was a bit of atmosphere in there and Luke’s an electric horse, so he just lost a little bit of concentration at the beginning and unfortunately, he broke in the first medium trot, which is a bit of a disaster at the beginning of the test,” says Boyd, who also sits 13th overnight with Tsetserleg and 17th with Fedarman B. “But he had some good stuff in there, and to recover and get a score of 30 is not too bad.”

That fire in Luke’s belly will be put to the test over tomorrow’s cross-country course, but by the time he leaves the start box as the last out in this class, Boyd will have gathered two lots of course intel to help him along.

“I think my biggest challenge with Luke is just being able to slow him down,” he says with a laugh. “He’s pretty aggressive and bold and feisty, and trying to slow him down at the jumps without wasting too much time is my biggest challenge. So I think I’ll hop on him in the morning, very early tomorrow morning, and canter around and try and take a bit of juice out of him and work on some turns and going forward and back, and try and get him a bit adjustable before we start. Thomas [Tsetserleg TSF] has jumped everything that we’re looking at tomorrow, but you know, we didn’t have the the best last five-star start, so I’ve got to really pay attention early on the course when Thomas is a bit strong. Bruno [Fedarman B] has been a champion in the last 18 months, so I would hope that he can cope with this, and Luke’s probably the greenest jumper out of all of them. So hopefully I got a little bit of luck saved up for my third ride!”

Australia’s Bill Levett rounds out the top ten with Huberthus AC, who also put a 30.1 on the board.

“It was his first probably mistake-free test that he’s done at a four or five-star,” says Bill, who rerouted the gelding from Badminton. “He’s not a hot horse, but he’s got a lot of tension. You school him and he just seems to have endless energy, so coming to these shows is always better, because you got the chance to set him up and you can get him out three times and just get him to relax. Thankfully, he went in there and stayed with me. I’ve had some good help with Ian Woodhead, and that’s helped me a lot, and Kevin McNab, just before I went in, for half an hour was just helping with my angles and what it looked like. All those things help you be in the right frame of mind to get the best out of him.”

Now, Bill is interested to see how the gelding handles what he describes as “more of a championship horse” — which could, if all goes well, set him up to be a championship horse.

“Like all riders know, with a bit of mileage, you really don’t know what they’re going to be like at the next stage,” he says. “Once they’ve been at the stage for a while, then you really sort of understand them. They’re not machines. Sometimes they’re not feeling well and they’ll let you know, in certain ways. But I took him to the gallops post-Badminton and he was really better than when he went to Badminton. He was like, ‘right, let’s go!’ He doesn’t normally take off up the gallops, and whew, he was off! I’ll be fascinated to see how he goes around here for 11 minutes. He’s gone fast around Blenheim, and so I’m hoping that he’s going to [make the time]. Will he take a little bit of insecurity away from Badminton? You know, that’s what I don’t know. And I’m hoping not. But we won’t know until we’re out there.”

Tamie Smith sits 15th overnight after posting a 31.9 with her five-star debutant Solaguayre California, who had some inexperienced moments in the changes but rose to the occasion in the atmosphere.

“She’s green, and she still has another six to twelve months to be stronger,” says Tamie. “I felt like she gave me everything she had, and she was very obedient and listened. I felt like the test was executed well — I mean, a little here and there — but I’m very pleased with her. She’s a bit of a dragon! But in a way, that’s good. You know, she’s a mare and so she has her opinions. We always have to negotiate and kind of come to a compromise, but when it’s time to perform, she always gets to business and get serious.”

Solaguayre California comes to Luhmühlen off the back of a second-place finish in the CCI4*-S at Kentucky, and a third-place finish at Tryon CCI4*-S, but today, Tamie says, was still a valuable lesson in exposure for the twelve-year-old.

“It’s actually a bit spookier for some reason than Kentucky, with the cut out horses…and [Kentucky] is easier when it’s busier, [because you don’t have] like, sporadic people walking around around the arena,” she explains. “So I would say that it’s much more distracting here — maybe the atmosphere isn’t quite as electric, but the focus, because of all the things moving around, [can be tricky]. But I feel like it brings out the brilliance and they lift more in their wither, which is helpful.”

Though Tamie considered making the mare’s debut at the level at Kentucky, she opted instead to give her more time and consolidation this spring and a later move-up here.

“I wasn’t sure how she was going to feel — I mean, she won Morven Park last year, but not the way I would have wanted her to,” she says. “You know, she felt green. And I just wanted to test her. I guess on paper, you’d say ‘take her and do Kentucky’, but I had spoken to her owners — they’re amazing, supportive people — and we just talked about what was maybe best for her. I wasn’t sure I was going to do a five-star in the spring, and they said ‘whatever you think’. So I said ‘I’ll prepare at home and then I’ll go to Kentucky [4*-S] and see how she feels and then I’ll take her to Tryon and if she feels really confident after Kentucky, then I think we should go to Luhmuhlen’. They they were behind me, and I’m grateful for that. I feel like you kind of have one shot — I always want to go into a five-star feeling like I haven’t left anything on the table, and so that was the purpose [of waiting].”

Matt Flynn and Wizzerd also came forward late in the section and delivered a smart, consistent test that was just marred by a mistake in the walk to collected canter transition. They posted a 34.2 that puts them in 21st place overnight — but, thanks to the tight bunching of the scores, just a stone’s throw from the business end of proceedings.

Spectators flocked to the stands for this morning’s CCI4*-S to see the hotly-anticipated return to Luhmühlen of 2021 CCI5* winners Mollie Summerland and Charly van ter Heiden — and they certainly weren’t left disappointed. The pair entered the arena very nearly in passage — a degree of engagement and precision that they’ve perfected while training with dressage riders Olivia Oakely and Carl Hester — and carried that cadence and power into the ring with them, throwing down the gauntlet for the otherwise very German-leaning leaderboard. Though one late change cost them a couple of marks, their score of 24.8 couldn’t be touched for the rest of the day, and the cheer they earned from their legion of continental fans was among the loudest of the day.

“He was really relaxed, and actually, he’s felt at home all week,” says Mollie. “So it’s quite strange — he’s only done half an hour of work each day and just come out of stable for grazing, and I literally got on him probably 20 minutes before the test, and he’s just so relaxed. He really likes it here, and I was chuffed with how he felt. He feels like he’s just getting stronger and stronger and better and more confident with that level of power in the arena, and I actually still think he’s got more to give in the dressage.”

For Mollie, too, returning to the site of her biggest career moment is a special feeling: ” I love coming back here, and I love everybody that works at this show,” she says. “They feel like family to me, so I’m really happy that we’ve come back.”

Olympic gold medallist Julia Krajewski sits second overnight, and leads the German National Championship, with her nine-year-old Nickel 21, after putting a score of 26.7 on the board in the gelding’s third four-star. With a second place and a third place under his belt at the level already, he’s rightly tipped as one of Julia’s future top-level stars — but, she explains, that wasn’t always the obvious pathway for him.

“He was originally bought by [Amande de b’Neville and Ero de Cantraie’s] owners as a young horse as a showjumper, and then he almost qualified for the six-year-old national championships for jumping, but he wasn’t quite good enough,” says Julia. “Then they said, ‘well, he’s got a good canter — just try him.’ When he was turning seven he did his first young horse class here at Luhmühlen, and he wouldn’t ever walk past the jumps, but he’d always jump them. He went from there to doing his first two-star three months later. He was then sold to a junior rider because I wasn’t sure if he’d go all the way, and so his owners wanted to find an up-and-coming rider for him — but he stayed in my stable, and when she decided to go to New Zealand and explore life a little, her parents asked if I would like to take him back. That was pretty much one year ago, and then he did three-star long at the end of last year, and then his first four-stars, and in between all that, I’ve taken him twice to do the Jump and Drive at Aachen, and he’s done  various indoor cross-country, and he was a little bit the ‘fun horse’, because he’s so straightforward. Somehow, he didn’t really stand out, but I think that’s what makes him good: he’s not complicated. You basically tell him, ‘okay, this is what you’re supposed to do’, and he’s like, ‘okay, fine!’ So that’s really cool.”

Nickel remains in the ownership of young rider Sophia Rössel and her family, who are enjoying the journey to the top levels with the gelding.

“Her parents are the owners at heart, and they really love to be at these competitions — they’re so proud,” says Julia. “It’s really cool to have them with us, and we’ll see how far we all get together.”

Julia also sits fifth overnight with yesterday’s ride, Ero de Cantraie — but Nickel, she says, is a very different horse to ride.

“It’s funny, because he’s normally a way more laid back character than the other one, but he can also be quite quick in switching his mind sometimes — he’ll be really chilled and then really switched on, whereas with Ero, either he’s with me, or he isn’t. Maybe that’s the difference between the French and the German,” she laughs. “They couldn’t be more different, but they are both very genuine and honest, and they want to do well.”

The marking across both classes has remained on the harsher side today, and Julia was disappointed not to see bolder choices made by the ground jury in this class: “Nickel came in and I kept hearing the judges say ‘six’, and I was like, ‘come on‘. They love 6.5 especially all day. I think 6.5 should be forbidden! 6s, okay, it means you sort of managed it but it was a bit shitty, and 7s mean you managed it reasonably fine but it wasn’t special — but what’s between? Half shitty? It doesn’t have a purpose.”

Ingrid Klimke and Equistros Siena Just Do It overcame the mare’s occasional tempestuousness to show off, instead, pure pace and power, earning them a 28.3 and overnight third place, 1.6 marks ahead of yesterday’s leaders, Nadine Marzahl and Victoria 108, with just two minor mistakes in the work.

“I was so pleased, because for sure, when the clapping was going on and she saw the two girls [opening the ring gate at A], she kind of mentally goes somewhere, and she’s like, ‘ahh!’,” says Ingrid. “But as soon as she entered the ring, she was like, ‘okay, I have to behave, and I have to stay in this pattern, I have to listen — she really means it, and there’s no discussion today!’ The two mistakes in the ring, I must say, are my fault: in the second change, I did too much preparation, and so she thought, ‘oh, it’s coming’ — if I’d been a little bit more positive and kept the canter, she wouldn’t have changed early. And the halt we sometimes get a little too early before the reinback, but today, all of a sudden I thought ‘ah, we’re a little bit late!’ and had to stop quite suddenly. So they were both, I think, mistakes on my account.”

While Siena has always had the raw material for a great test — and has delivered plenty, too — she’s also been prone to exploding in the ring. Getting to the other side of this tendency, Ingrid explains, has been a case of time and tact.

“You really have to take a lot of time and be very clear yourself on the one hand, but in a very gentle way,” she says. “You have to find the balance and ask her to be patient, but before there’s an explosion, you must let her be free again, and then you can ask a little bit more next time. I can’t ever put pressure on her — then she explodes. Yesterday, all of a sudden, she decided she doesn’t like to do reinback anymore, so I said, ‘okay’, and went back and put a neck ring on her, and we did it with the neck ring, and a free rein, and then the neck ring with the rein, and then we put it away. If I’d started a battle, she’d have reared. We do a lot of horsemanship, and T-Touch, and we really try to give her, from all sides, the idea that if she relaxes, it’s all okay. It really takes time.”

Hallie Coon is best of the US in this class, sitting 14th overnight on a 32.1 with the newly-minted four-star horse Cute Girl, who was previously piloted by Australia’s Kevin McNab, with whom she won the Seven-Year-Old World Championship and with whom the pair are now based. This is the mare’s second CCI4*-S, and as such, each outing is a fact-finding mission in every way — from the ringcraft itself to the preparation required.

“She was really good, and she was really with me, but I just think that we worked her a bit too much this week, looking back,” says Hallie. “I think we’ve could’ve given her a lighter week and it would have been better, given that she just travelled over from Millstreet and all that a few days before we came here, and I just think, being a nine year old,  it was maybe just a bit much.”

But, she reasons, these are the elements that can only be fine-tuned with experience, which Cute Girl is gaining in spades on her travels this season — and seasoned upper-level competitor Hallie is, too, with the excellent support team she’s formed around her since her relocation to the UK at the end of 2022.

“It’s been great for me to have Kevin and the family, and [dressage trainer] Sune Hansen, and Francesca Pollara to support me,” she says. “It’s unbelievably helpful. Obviously, this is a selection trial for the Pan Ams and Paris so obviously, we have a whole US contingent here at the show, and I think it’s very focused in terms of a team orientation, but I’m just sort of plugging away with my own team and trying to go about things as normal.”

Dan Krietl and Carmango will go into cross-country in 29th place on a 35.4, having kicked off today’s proceedings with a bright and early dressage test to start their first-ever European experience.

“It was good, overall but also, of course, you’re always wishing you could be a little bit better,” says Dan. “I had a couple of mistakes and I could have done a little better, maybe. But overall, he’s an awesome horse and tries so hard, and you can count on him generally to be pretty steady. So I’m thankful for that.”

This isn’t just a first competitive European trip for high-flying amateur CCI4*-L National Champion Dan — it’s also a first trip to Europe, full stop. And he’s making the most of it: not only is he continuing on to Aachen next month, he’s also been able to spend some time training in Belgium with some influential new mentors.

“We’re super excited to be here. I’ve never been to Europe at all, period, and then get to come with horse has been even more fun,” he says. “I actually came here early, like two weeks ago, and have been at Kai and Lara [de Liedekerke-Meier]’s place, Arville, in Belgium. So I’ve been working with Kai and getting some good lessons there, and then we got here Tuesday. The horse made the trip great and settled in well, and it’s been an awesome experience. It seems that just the average quality of rider is maybe a step up over here — and of course being here at a big FEI event, it’s a lot of the best riders and horses. But it’s super fun, and everybody’s super nice and it’s fun to be in a competitive environment.”

Now, he’s excited to tackle tomorrow’s cross-country track with the horse he’s built such a close partnership with over the years.

“He’s a beast of a cross country horse, and I think he should handle that course quite well. He loves his job and it looks like a course that’ll suit him,” he says. “I’ve had him since he was four, so we’ve shared all of our first experiences together — s o we knew each other really well. He loves cross country, and as long as he sees the jump, he’ll do his damnedest to get over it.”

Tomorrow’s cross-country will begin with the CCI5* at 9.15 a.m. local time (8.15 a.m. BST/3.15 a.m. EST), and full times for the class — holds notwithstanding — can be found here. Then, it’s on to the CCI4*-S, incorporating the German National Championships, from 12.55 local (11.55 a.m. BST/6.55 a.m. EST) — after that, as the Germans say, we make party.
