The Wink prize today (Saturday, 19.9) offered 14 ambitious pony riders the perfect stage to prove themselves on an international platform. Competitors had to navigate a course with 1.05m high obstacles in front of the splendid backdrop of Vienna’s Town Hall. Those who made it round without errors then had chance to compete in a jump-off for the victory. Five of the young talents made it through to the jump-off, with Austrian Jugend I vice-champion Ludovica Goess-Saurau (Burgenland) going on to claim the victory. Riding the agile Rusty, she dashed round the jump-off course in just 31.26 seconds, consigning Noelle Ruth (Lower Austria) and Naomi to second place (0/32.93). Lena Binder (Lower Austria), current Austrian team pony champion and daughter of the Austrian national youth coach, finished third with Lady Foxx (0/39.96).
