Glock purchases Cognac Champblanc for Gerco Schroder….


After the acquisition of GLOCK’s London N.O.P. and GLOCK’s Debalia GLOCK, the Dutch rider Gerco Schröder has another equine GLOCK star in his stables: GLOCK’s Cognac Champblanc.

The grey gelding is an offspring of the famous Holsteiner stallion Clearway. GLOCK’s Cognac Champblanc has been under the saddle of the famous dutch rider for only half a year now but he is developing great. “I have known Cognac for a long time since he was ridden by Maja Friberg in our stables and then my brother began competing with him on an international level. I started riding him in April 2014 and was thrilled right from the beginning. He has a lot of jumping capability, is very ambitious and constant. On the other hand he is very easy to handle and a friendly, good-natured horse. Just perfect!”

The results are already remarkable: a fifth place for the GLOCK duo at the world ranking competition of CSIO5*-NC Rome in May, the ninth rank at the Rabobank Championship of Rotterdam in June at the CSIO5*-NC Rotterdam, a third place in the Grand Prix of CSI3* Ommen in August, fourth place in the Grand Prix of CSI5* LGCT Lausanne in September, sixth place at the CSI5* Los Angeles Masters, fifth place at the CSIO5*-NC Queens Cup Trophy of Barcelona in October and fourth place at the CSI5*-W in Lyon at the beginning of November. “Cognac just started competing on an international level, so he has to gain more experience and we will do that together from now on! I am terribly happy that he is a GLOCK horse now and GLOCK’s Cognac Champblanc just sounds phantastic.”
