Wednesday Video from Kentucky Performance Products: Luhmühlen Course Preview

All systems are go for Luhmühlen 2016, and we’re now privy to a preview of this year’s CCI4* track.

It’s Captain Mark Phillips’ last year designing, as Mike Etherington-Smith will be taking over in 2017, and he’s done a lovely job with it as usual, perhaps even upping the ante for this year’s field of 30 horse/rider combinations.

A few first impressions:

Yogi Breisner, chef d’equipe for Great Britain : “This year’s courses are brilliant! Captain Mark Phillips has done a tremendous job designing this year’s courses beautifully and with great variation whilst the ground could not be better!”

Hans Melzer, chef d’equipe for Germany: “The cross country looks fabulous! It is well designed and beautifully presented and the ground could not be better. The four-star is more technical than last year and the three-star is difficult enough, asking for concentration from horse and rider throughout. This however, should be no problem for the top riders giving them the chance to prove themselves before we select our team for Rio.”

Chris Bartle, team coach for Germany: “The four-star-course is a little bit stronger than in previous years, however, every question asked of horse and rider is clear. The Meßmer water complex is has different look this year, making it very interesting just as the Krüll Premium Cars Village.”
