Victory for Wesley Newlands in CSI2* Silver Tour final
The final of the CSI2* Silver Tour presented by Meinl has been decided. 32 participants entered the 1.30m standard jumping examination, with around half of them making it through to the 17-man jump-off to decide the overall winner. 27-year-old Canadian Wesley Newlands was able to secure the victory in the saddle of Wieminka B, daughter of Cardento. The duo performed a brilliant lap and posted an impressive time of 35.95 seconds, which not even this weekend’s double Silver Tour winner Christian Schranz (AUT/Lower Austria) was able to beat. Schranz navigated Swiss-bred gelding Whisper von Lichten CH across the finish line in 36.99 seconds, with Tess Carmichael (GBR) taking third place with Unique III (0/38.17).
R34 team rider Anna Markel (AUT/Lower Austria) rode to sixth place with Catwalk Kaj, whilst Johanna Sixt (AUT/Burgenland) finished eighth with Lillifee. Alessandra Reich (AUT/Upper Austria) on U Mijnheer, Alpenspan team rider Leonard Platzer (AUT/Lower Austria) on Nausica Tame and Theresa Pachler (AUT/Lower Austria) on Zaphira 14 occupied places nine, eleven and twelve.

Second Bronze Tour win for Gustavo Mirabal
Following Thursday’s victory in the CSI2* Bronze Tour opening, Gustavo Mirabal of Venezuela was able to finish top of the class again today.

Gustavo Mirabal and nine-year old G And C Jartrum (Orame x Acrobat II) recorded the fastest time (26.66 seconds), forcing second-placed Brigitte Prömer (AUT/Tirol) – riding her Oldenburg mare Chanel 418 – to concede defeat by just four hundredths of a second (0/26.70). Alicia Store (GBR) came third with Diva Z (0/27.81), daughter of Darco.
Josefina Goess-Saurau (AUT/Burgenland) on Chandel de Tiji Z, Petra Tagger-Hutschinski (AUT/Vienna) on Lord Lui, Brigitte Prömer once again on Loroville, and the two R34 team riders Marie Christine Sebesta (AUT/Vienna) on Olala 2 and Johanna Biber (AUT/Lower Austria) on Sonnenbluemchen B took the number five, seven, nine and ten and eleven spots.
