Thank you Casall!

The CSI5* LGCT Grand Prix of Hamburg was won by the great Casall Ask ridden by his long term rider Rolf- Goran Bengtsson.

After three amazing clear rounds the 18-year-old stallion ended on top in the CSI5* LGCT Grand Prix of Hamburg. Straight after he was officially retired from the sport, and made his very last lap of honor! Indeed this competition was chosen by by Rolf as last for his fabulous champion.

Casall's withdrawal had been announced a long time ago: the horse then made some big competitions to get to Hamburg, where he won in great style, jumping a very fast jump- off, nearly 3 second faster then Dutch Harrie Smolders on Don VHP Z!

What a way to end this stallion's magnificent career winning his very last competition!

It was a fairy-tail ending to a fantastic career: Casall Ask and Rolf-Göran Bengtsson go into the history books as one of the true power-pairs of showjumping as title-holders of the 2016 Longines Global Champions Tour as well as wins in the Longines Global Champions Tour Grand Prix competitions of Doha, Valkenswaard and Paris during the 2016-season. The also have five-star Grand Prix, World Cup and Nations Cup victories from Rome (2015), London (2015), Doha (2014), Lyon (2014 and 2011), Basel (2014), Monte Carlo (2011), Hamburg (2011), Falsterbo (2010), Rotterdam (2010), Den Bosch (2010) and Oslo (2009) to look back at in addition to a team bronze medal from the 2013 European Championships in Herning. The two also jumped to a fourth place at the 2014 World Equestrian Games, participated at the 2012 Olympic Games and have taken part in three World Cup finals.
