Horses of a different color

Something a little different in the showjumping arena! 
CSI5* CSI2* CSIYH1* CSIAm-A
‘What a speedy opening round! Today Juergen Krackow (AUT/S) raced with his grey stallion Boulharouz as third but last starter through the CSI2* 1.40 m course and, with a time of 64.11 seconds, easily beat the time of Australian rider Jamie Winning who had led till then. The Salzburg-based rider impressed not only with his time but also the exact turns and correctly estimated distances, as well as the bitless bridle called a Bosal, which he had chosen for his stallion. “I would like to show that even in the big sports, horses can be presented successfully with alternative bridles instead of snaffle bits” explained Juergen Krackow in the winner’s interview, having already achieved third place yesterday. ’
