SVAG FEI WRC 2016 Individual Competition
After unbelievably thrilling finals it was gold for Italy!
Gennaro Lendi is the FEI World Champion Senior Reining
What a day at the CS Ranch! The stands were bursting and the atmosphere boiling from the first to the last rider!
Tina Künstner-Mantl aboard Nu Chexomatic was third to go and really set a mark scoring 221.5. She took the lead until Italy’s Gennaro Lendi aboard Yankee Gun had a fantastic run and topped the score by half of a point 6 riders later. Alexander Ripper and Hollys Electricspark followed with a score of 220.5, third place at halftime.
Then one highlight followed the next: Ann Fonck with Nic Ricochet scored 220, Cira Baeck aboard Whizasunnysailor BB followed and rode to a great 220.5. All eyes were on the last two riders to show, Grischa Ludwig with Gwhiz Im Smart and Bernard Fonck riding Smart N Sparkin. Grischa Ludwig had a great run and was rewarded with a score of 221.5. Bernard Fonck was unable to top the score this time, he came out with a 219 and so it was clear: FEI World Champion Senior Reining 2016 is Gennaro Lendi and his seven year old Paint Horse stud Yankee Gun.
The silver and bronze medals still had to be decided: Tina Künstner-Mantl and Grischa Ludwig were tied.
Tina Künstner-Mantl (AUT) and Grischa Ludwig (GER) rode again to decide the silver and bronze medals. The result of this exciting tie showed Grisha Ludwig and Gwhiz Im Smart coming out ahead of Tina Künstner-Mantl with Nu Chexomatic.
