World Cup Non Pro Bronze Trophy Champion: Tina Künstner-Mantl & Gina-Maria Schumacher become Co-Champions

The $10.000-added World Cup Bronze Trophy Non Pro final ended with a tie on first place between Gina-Maria Schumacher aboard her Gotta Nifty Gun (Dun It Gotta Gun x Custom Nifty Nic) and Austrian Tina-Künstner-Mantl aboard Nu Chexomatic (Nu Chex To Cash x Tejons Little Lena), who posted a 223.5 each for their runs. The two decided against a run off and became Co-Champions.

Gina-Maria Schumacher is FEI World World Champion Young Riders and NRHA World Champion Non Pro (both with the 7-year-old Gotta Nifty Gun). Tina Künstner-Mantl was 2014 NRHA World Champion Non Pro (aboard Cashn Rooster, whom she rode to 7th place in the final scoring a 217). Her 10-year-old gelding Nu Chexomatic was 2015 AMERICANA Open Trophy Champion unter Cody Sapergia und beendete das Jahr als NRHA World Champion Open. At this AMERICANA, the palomino was Bronze Trophy Open Reserve Champion with Grischa Ludwig in the saddle.

„I was a little worried before the final that Nu Chexomatic would be too fast as he had earned a 230 with Grischa the day before,“ said Tina at the award presentation. “But the gelding was great and I am so happy.“

And Gina was not sure about her horse before the run either: „I don’t know why but I was very nervous,“ she said. “But Freddie was wonderful as always. “

Edoardo Bernardelli and Wimpys Little Chess placed third (219) with Enrico Sciulli and Snip Gotta Bud following on  fourth place.
