Moving all his horses to Sir Mark Todd!
Ludwig is moving his string of 6 horses to Mark Todd at Badgers Town, at the end of January. This includes his top horses King Bob and Alexander aimed at Badminton in May.
“I am thrilled to have the opportunity of training side by side with one of the world´s best event rider through all times”, says Ludwig.
“It will be very inspiring, and give me a chance to be in a professional environment with great facilities ”, continues Ludwig, who is hoping for a medal at the World Equestrian Games in August.
As Ludwig is reorganizing his stable with horses and is hoping to replace Shamwari with a younger horse, with Rio de Janeiro 2016 in mind, he fells excited about the future.
The location of Badgers town is ideal as it is close to many events and to the M4 which makes it easy to communicate to the rest of England and Europe.Read more
Shamwari sold to USA
Shamwari has now left my yard to join top international rider Boyd Martin, in the US. It was a very difficult and emotional decision to sell Shamwari, as he is a horse that made many of my dreams come true. I was very happy when Boyd showed an interest for him as I really respect him as a rider and a person and I’m sure he will take great care of Shamwari. With Shamwari, I won a Team Silver at the European Championships in Sweden last summer as well as a fourth Team and 20th individual placing at the Olympic Games in London 2012. Together we got several placings in *** around Europe among them my first placing in *** in Burnham Market 2011 where we finished 2nd. I am selling Shamwari as my father have been investing in a lot of great horses of which I had the pleasure to produce to *** or ****. The idea was and always is to produce these horses and sell them at a good age when they have reached top level. We are now looking to invest in the next generation of horses to produce.
”Thanks Shamwari for all the awesome moments and you will truly be missed!”
