2018. Hagen CSI 4 François Mathy & Casanova L'Herse Karl-Heinz Frieler

The Prize of Firma A. Rawie GmbH & Co. KG was held on Friday afternoon as part of the big tour of the international CSI 4* at Horses & Dreams meets the Royal Kingdom of Jordan. Belgian rider Francois Jr Mathy had originally planned to ride a quiet round on Casanova de L’ Herse instead of taking the maximum risk in the two-phase jumping event, “But we got a perfect distance in the second phase and Casanova felt great, so I kept the rhythm and he’s just a very fast horse.” The 47-year-old rider manages a competition stable near Liege together with this father. In second place was the Turkish rider, Derin Demirsoy with Dadjak Ter Puttenen, third place went to Felix Haßmann (Lienen) and Sig Captain America.

The seven- and eight-year-old horses had their second appearance at Hagen on Friday morning. The win went to Belgian rider Constant van Paesschen with Kid Pleasure d’Asschaut, an eight-year-old son by For Pleasure-Nonstop. Penelope Leprevost (FRA) and Quintair (Quintero x Con Air) took second place, followed by Pius Schwizer (SUI) mit Avenir d’Aiguilly.

The Prize of Cadman GmbH, a jumping event of the medium tour, was won by Toni Hassmann (Wettringen) with the Montender-son Maicon, ahead of Jan Wernke (Holdorf) with Queen Rubin and Philip Rüping with Chaccobel.

Saturday’s program in the main jumping arena will kick off with the Prize of Sparkasse Osnabrück for ambitious amateur riders. The next event is the Prize of Bankhaus Lampe KG, before the qualification for the Grand Prix is decided in the Prize of LVM Insurance.
