Fabulous end of the season
Championship weekend for AK Ambassadors Borja Carrascosa and Sandra Kristoffersen
With the European Championships in Rotterdam and the Danish Youth Championships in the vicinity of Copenhagen, it was double fingers crossed for the AK team.
For Borja Carrascosa and the 10-year-old gelding "Ein Traum" the season's highlight of the year was on. After great results in the spring – i.a. the victory of the CDI5 * kur in Doha at the beginning of the year – the couple was nominated for the European Championships in the Dutch city of Rotterdam.
After a great round with only minor discrepancies in the Grand Prix which was rewarded with 69.07%, the Spanish team finished in sixth place in the team ranking. Unfortunately, it was not enough to qualify for the Grand Prix Special in the individual competition. Nevertheless, Borja is happy about a successful championship debut for "Ein Traum". Also trainer and owner Petra Hoffmann looks forward to the coming season, in which Borja and Ein Traum have their eyes firmly on the Olympic Games in Tokyo.
Sandra Kristoffersen also has an exciting weekend behind her. After the Scandinavian Championships last July, when she won the gold medal with the Danish team, she returned to the Danish championships with her mare Baunehøjens Florida to compete in the age group of the young riders.
After a successful kick-off in the Prix St. Georges to 69.05%, she made some annoying mistakes in the 2nd special stage. Nevertheless, she reported a great feeling in the kur-final, which was rewarded with 72.4%. This was enough to get back into the top 10 in the overall standings and Sandra finished the championship in 9th place.
