Success for The meeco Equestrian Team and its new horse

Past weeks have been very busy for the members of The meeco Equestrian Team sponsored by The meeco Group. From the 8th of May to the 10th, the team participated in a prestigious CSN5* competition in Toledo. Then, from May 15th to 17th, riders of The meeco Equestrian Team jumped at an international CSI2* competition in Madrid.

In Toledo, where the CSN5* competition celebrated its twenty-first edition, participants could compete in four daily official classes (from 1.20 to 1.50 metres). The meeco horses Suncarrier Rubina and OurSun Lacoste distinguished with their riders by reaching a good 6th and 7th place in the 1.20 metres class. They had to jump against a broad field of competitors of 58 other horses. Though numerous challengers entered the 1.30 class, The meeco Equestrian Team attained a 10th classification amongst 82 participants thanks to OurSun Cariana, a Holsteiner mare. Moreover, the new horse of the team, OurSun Caretanus 2, accomplished a clear round in the 1.35 class and achieved the 15th place out of 62 other participants.

As a highly important competition, the international CSI2* tournament in Club de Campo Villa de Madrid proved to be a real challenge for The meeco Equestrian Team. “I was confident, that we will do our best to succeed”, says Wilhelm Bettinger. “I’m very proud of winning a third classification in the 1.20 metres class with Suncarrier Rubina within 56 competitors. In the same class, OurSun Caretanus 2, the new seven years old Holsteiner gelding, and OurSun Queeny Rubin, our Hannoveraner mare, made a clear round.” With very good times (just a few milliseconds behind the winner) and clear rounds, two meeco equestrians reached in the Small Premium Tour (1.30 class) a 4th and a 5thclassification, with their horses OurSun Lacoste and OurSun Cariana. Besides, the horses Sun2safe Cassara and OurSun Inkognito jumped a prosperous 1.30 metres class without any mistakes and ranked at the 10th and 12th place.
