Rolex Grand Slam of Show Jumping


Average day for Steve Guerdat and Christian Ahlmann

After achieving average results, the Olympic gold medallist Steve Guerdat from Switzerland and Christian Ahlmann (Germany) are looking ahead to competing in Sunday's "CP International presented by Rolex" at the Spruce Meadows `Masters´. A victory in the Grand Prix will give both riders the opportunity to write sporting history: as the first rider to win a bonus in the "Rolex Grand Slam of Show Jumping". After two rounds in the difficult Nations' Cup on Saturday, in total Steve Guerdat picked up 14 penalty points with "Concetto Son". For Christian Ahlmann the afternoon was over earlier than planned. After only reaching seventh place after the first round, the German team didn't qualify to take part in the second round of the Nations' Cup. Ahlmann and Cornado II collected eight faults in the first round. With just one time fault in the most important competition on Friday, the prospects are looking good for the pair with a view to the "CP International presented by Rolex", where Ahlmann will be battling it out to attain his second victory in success in the Rolex Grand Slam of Show Jumping. In July, Ahlmann won the Rolex Grand Prix at the CHIO Aachen. Steve Guerdat will enter the concluding competition at the Spruce Meadows `Masters´ as the winner of last December's "CHI Geneva". The Rolex Grand Slam of Show Jumping comprises of the three above-mentioned Major Shows.
