Saturday, October 10th, 2009:  1.45 Qualifier of the European Youngster Cup U25

Premiere Victory for Turkey in the European Youngster Cup! Stefanie Bistan (AUT) places 3rd.

His victory was a sensation! Today, Derin Demirsoy at the European Youngster Cup had all eyes on him, not only because of his youth, he is only 15 years old, but also because of his splendid performance in the course.
Riding his 10 year old Murano-son named Surprise, he showed that he has talent, speed and an innate feeling for distances. This brought him to the attention of the expert public. Further, he had the only clear round of all the participants. There were a total of 12 4-fault rounds in what had been a starting field of 37 hopeful young talents. The fastest of these made it to 2nd and 3rd place. One of them was Philipp Schober (GER), who had ridden the fastest round on his 11-year old mare Love Dance, and then also Austrian young talent Stefanie Bistan, who delivered a splendid performance once more on her 16-year old grey gelding named Carrera.

Friday, October 9th, 2009: 1.40 Qualifier of the European Youngster Cup U25

The favorite wins! Carina Hindelang (GER) placed before Derin Demirsoy (TUR) and Dennis Evertse (NED). Double state champion Gmall Esther places 10th and is best Austrian rider.

One should never discount
Carina Hindelang (GER)! The favorite for the European Youngster Cup lived up to her reputation today! Riding her 11-year old Westphalian mare Promi Model, she went in as the 12th rider and delivered an incredible round. Taking only 59.93 seconds, the 24-year old virtually raced through the course and the 1.40 jumps, with a time that could not be topped anymore. The only rider to remotely come close was Derin Demirsoy (TUR),who tried to attack on his 10-year old Dutch Warmblood gelding Surprise. He was only 4 tenths of a second behind the sensational time of the German amazone who snatched the victory. 3rd place went to Dennis Evertse (NED) on his 12-year old Carthago Z son Pegasus. As overall leader of the Stable Obora High Fly Tour, he will be competing in today's finals of that tour and fight for a brand-new Smart from the Georg Pappas Automobil AG company. The best Austrian result went to double state champion Gmall Esther on her 8-year old mount Qi Gong (10.Pl./1/73,77).
