Two european gold medals for Gina
FEI European Reining Championships for Juniors and Young Riders 2015
Italy was chasing a fifth consecutive victory in the Junior Team event, but, on her home turf, it was Gina Schumacher who clinched victory for Germany. There were five nations battling for the medals here, and Gina was last to go for her side. She really threw down the gauntlet when steering Gunners Enterprise home for a score of 215 to move the final German tally on to 640.0 – and thus to gold.
Gina produced a near-perfect ride with her 11-year-old paint horse stallion Gunners Enterprise whose stable-name is Digger. They were untouchable for gold when scoring 219. “My horse was great for me once again, and I am thrilled with this second gold medal!”, Gina said afterwards. “I cannot thank my team members and coach enough, my trainer Shawna Larcombe and of course my mom and family who are my greatest supporters!”
