A look back at the weekend's Ecco Cup qualification, as well as B and C-level competitions in Kolding.
Over the weekend, the second qualification of the Ecco Cup took place at Kolding Rideklub, where several of Blue Hors’ horses and riders participated. Sophia Ludvigsen and Blue Hors Quintana achieved a victory in Saturday’s Ecco Cup U25 qualification, which was held in Int. II, securing the overall 1st place in the results for the second qualification of the Ecco Cup U25.

Kolding Rideklub hosted the second qualification of the Ecco Cup, and therefore several of Blue Hors’ riders and horses were in attendance, not only in the Ecco Cup qualification but also in several other classes. In the Ecco Cup U25 – 2nd qualification, Blue Hors had two pairs competing. Sophia Ludvigsen and Blue Hors Quintana (by Quantensprung/Desperados) and Amalie Aasted Albæk and Gørklintgårds Quantico (by Quaterback/Carpaccio). On Saturday, Sophia and Quintana secured an impressive 1st place in the Int. II with a score of 72.281%, while Amalie and Quantico placed 7th with 66.535%. On Sunday, in the U25 Grand Prix, both riders achieved placings. Sophia came in 2nd with 72.054%, and Amalie placed 3rd with 69.651%. This was an outstanding performance by the two riders from Blue Hors! As a result, Sophia and Quintana secured the 1st place overall, and Amalie and Quantico placed 4th in the 2nd qualification of the Ecco Cup U25. In the 2nd qualification of the Ecco Cup for juniors, Michelle Skovsager and Blue Hors Zampalo (by Blue Hors Zack/Brentano II) achieved a 6th place overall. It was an impressive performance by this new partnership, as they have only been riding together for a few weeks since Michelle took over the reins from Amalie. Additionally, Theresa Rosenkilde and Blue Hors Zwobber (by Blue Hors Zack/Blue Hors Romanov) placed 5th overall.

Samlet set en super weekend i Kolding! Vi ser frem til at afholde Ecco Cup finalerne i slutningen af november måned.
