With a composite score of 436.5, Philipp Martin Haug claimed the ERCHA European Championship Open Bridle aboard Kirsten Kunkel’s Snapper Lil Bingo. With this 8-year-old gelding Haug was FEQHA European Champion Senior Working Cowhorse 2019. „I am very happy – especially as the cattle were really tough,“ said Haug after his run. „Snapper is such an honest horse. Whenever he sees a chance to do his job he will do it. He simply loves working the cow.“
Two riders tied for the European Co-Reserve Championship scoring a 421 each: Joschka Werdermann with his gray mare Rock Me Graygun (Nu Tivio Chex X Two Acres) and Samuele Poli Barberis aboard his 10-year-old Highbrow Fletch (Royal Fletch x Lil Sally Cat).
The European Champion title Limited Open Bridle went to Joschka Werdermann and his 8-year-old mare Rock Me Graygun (Nu Tivio Chex X Two Acres), who earned a composite score of 421. With this horse, Joschka was 2018 Reserve European Champion Senior Working Cowhorse at the German Open as well as NRHA Breeders Derby Finalist Open. „My mare was really good for me today,“ said Joschka. „She was with me all the time listening well. The cattle were tough, but Graygun did a good job. And I think she has a lot more potential left.”
Maik Bartmann and Yvonne Bonda‘s 8-year-old Verlander (Wimpys Little Step x Melodys Gi Jane) placed second scoring a 420.5 with Martin Schemuth and his gelding Mr Chesmu Peppy Boon following on third place (408.5).
