Stuttgart, Germany – November 16, 2018 – Thursday saw Pius Schwizer (SUI) win the first qualifying class for the Mercedes German Master, the second most important competition at the 34th International Stuttgart German Masters Horse Show CSI 5*-W in the Hanns-Martin-Schleyer-Halle – and he repeated the feat on Friday in the second qualifier, the €30,000 Aragon Robotics Prize CSI 5*.
“If things are going your way, then they really do go your way. There are lots of top riders here but my horses are jumping well – we’ll keep chipping away,” said the 56-year old Swiss rider.
