We can ride around Capt. Mark Phillips’ Luhmühlen CCI4* cross country course with winners Ingrid Klimke and FRH Escada JS thanks to SAP Analytics, whose data is mashed up with Ingrid’s helmet cam footage in this video.
This is a fun one to watch for a couple reasons. Ingrid is known for chatting with her horses on course, and you also get a bird’s eye view of the stunning wooded scenery around the track, which resembles something out of a fairytale.
Luhmühlen had the highest percentage of double clear cross country rounds of any CCI4* in the past five years (37.1%), a fact we know thanks to our good friends at EquiRatings. If you missed their latest newsletter — which contains that stat and many more — you can check it out here.
It was the safe day of cross country Luhmühlen needed after Ben Winter died on course in 2014, which Mark Todd elaborates on in his latest column for Horse & Hound.
