The double World Champion and winner of the Olympic silver medal, Gerco Schröder, has got one more son of Ludwigs As. A few weeks after Lausejunge's arrival, Champions Ludwig went to the Glock stable. Gerco Schröder's sponsors bought the gelding at the eurocommerce-auction yesterday. Champions Ludwig achieved the highest price with 167.500 €.
The youngster is by Ludwigs As out of Wolanda by Karandasj and was bred by the de Boer family from Houtigehage/Netherlands. By the way, Wolanda was inseminated with Ludwigs As again a few days ago. Good luck!
Team GLOCK writes on its website:
Welcome GLOCK’s Champion Ludwig
“He’s got a lot of capacity and a substantial amount of energy. Just perfect for a rising star in the show-jumping arena!” was GLOCK Rider Gerco Schroeder’s happy comment, having this very afternoon taken a new GLOCK crack into his stables. GLOCK’s Champion Ludwig!
Gerco already knew this powerfully jumping, eight-year-old KWPN stallion descended from Ludwig’s As x Karandasj, from the time when, shortly before turning six, he came to Eurocommerce where he was presented in the arena by Belgian rider Annelies Vorsselmans. In 2014 Gerco took over the reins of the now seven-year-old talent. “He still has little experience in tournaments because, due to the circumstances, we mainly trained him at home. He is very ambitious, has good blood and a fantastic attitude. I am very happy that the Gaston and Kathrin Glock family bought him at auction today! This long period, during which we didn’t know how things would turn out for him, was hard for me and the auction today was very exciting. But, thanks to the Glock family, dreams come true! ‘Ludwig’ is allowed to stay here with us in Tubbergen and we have another dream horse for the future in the GLOCK Team!”
