GLOCK’s 5* Grand Prix triumph for Pius Schwizer

From Pius Schwizer official facebook

What a day! At first Pius Schwizer won the Youngster Tour Final with the eight year old mare Tina de l’Yserand and took second place with PSG Junior in the Two Phases – and then he triumphed in the 400’000 Euro Grand Prix with PSG Future. Ten riders were in the jump-off, but no one came close to Schwizer’s very fast clear round in 42.84 seconds. In second place was Lauren Hough on Ohlala (45.44). His first Grand Prix win with the eleven year old Holstein gelding was rewarded with 100’000 Euro. The very talented horse, owned by Peter Schildknecht, came to his stables only one month ago. „This win means a lot to me. Especially after all those turbulent weeks and the fact that not everybody was happy when PSG Future joined my string of horses.“ With this success Pius Schwizer has proven once more that talent and hard work always prevail. „Also Junior, Tina and Giovanni jumped super here and collected many good resultats. And Florence hat a great weekend too.“ She was sixth with Starlette de Maillet in the 2* Grand Prix and enjoyed several top placings with this mare and with Clever PKZ.
