An amazing couple - Luciana and Lennox
(worldofshowjumping.com) Luciana Diniz and Lennox (Lifestyle x Grammus) proved to be best in the World Cup class in Zürich showing off some brilliant riding around the difficult track. With nearly all the fences set at 1.60 it was a challenging course with a tight time allowed Rolf Lüdi had made for the riders, and especially the triple combination and the last line with a combination down to the final vertical proved to be difficult.
The FEI and Longines have today formalised a partnership that sees the Swiss watchmaker become the FEI's first Top Partner in a record multi-million Euro deal. The agreement is worth a nine-digit Euro sum over the next 10 years.
After a clear round with his 12 years old grey stallion Catany Edouard ranged at place 11 at the ICNN DRachten PRIJS in Drachten.
The CSI5* Grand prix in Basel went to Luciana Diniz and Lennox (Lifestyle x Grammus) after three rounds including a fast jump-off. After the first round 15 riders were clear and went on to a second round. Nine of these riders once again cleared the course, while Manuel Anon, Clarissa Crotta, Denis Lynch, Ludger Beerbaum, Patrice Delaveau and Marc Houtzager all had faults and had to watch the jump-off from the riders tribune.
What a weekend for Luciana and her horses: After a break Winningmood jumped back to the top in Stuttgart. In the worldcup the 13 year old stallion owned by Edouard de Rothschild did a clear round.
Luciana Diniz on Winningmood
This was a successfull weekend for Luciana Diniz and her horses: Lady Lindenhof was 3 rd in the opening class and Winningmood jumped clear very good in the 1M50 as prep for World Cup sunday.
(Munich) Luciana Diniz, best friend of Edouard de Rothschild, whose horses she also presents at international horse shows, has perfectly implemented her plan and became the "Rider of the Year" for the first time over the weekend in Munich. Originally, she wanted to go to the World Cup in Lyon. But picking up the World Cup points had to wait. "She will now, after speaking with me, devote herself to the World Cup with my stallion Winningmood," Edouard de Rothschild said. Winningmood has a lot of reserved strength and energy because he was not used in the Olympic Games. Edouard de Rothschild: "Our goal is now the World Cup Finals in Gothenburg, Sweden."
The international experienced 10 years-old gelding Kiamon (father:Kolibri) is the new entrant in Edouard de Rothschild´s stable. He bought the horse of the olympic rider Werner Muff (Swizzerland). Edouard wants to show the chesnut himself at horse shows.
Edouard de Rothschild took part at the Horse Festival Valkenswaard this weekend with his two best horses, Lamm de Fetan and Catany. He jumped clear with both horses, had only time-faults in the main classes.
