Silver Medal at the European Championships
1 September, 2013
After at few days of pre camp at the Swedish National Stud, Flyinge, Ludwig set off to Malmö for the European Championships. Shamwari was on great form, doing a good canter program and walk, but the trot work was not up to his normal standard which resulted in a score of 37,6 lying in 3rd place after the dressage phase. The cross country on the second day proved a bit on the soft side, Shamwari did a classy round, and picked up only 0,4 time faults, which kept him in 3rd place before the final day and Show Jumping. Unfortunately, although Shamwari did not jump bad, he had two poles down, which dropped the combination to 10th place. This was a personal disappointment for Ludwig, but he was happy to win the Team Silver Medal.
