Final results for the Luhmühlen 2014 CCI 4 star **** – 3 Australians in the price money

Filed under: General — horseoz @ 10:28 am

It was a sombre finish to this years event with the rider showing respect to the death of Benjamin Winter due to a fall on the Cross Country.  The president of the German Equestrian Federation, Breido Graf zu Rantzau, as well as the Team Trainer Chris Bartle, found some moving words in honour of Benjamin Winter. The competing riders collectively wore a black armband to mark their respect for Benjamin in the final show-jumping class.

After the conclusion and the prize giving ceremony there was no victory gallop this year, with the riders and their horses filing out quietly in respect.

At the simultaneously run 3 star Andrew Hoy (AUS) and Cheeky Calimbo won the CIC*** Meßmer Trophy (32.10).

Tragic accident overshadows Luhmühlen CCI**** – Benjamin Winter (GER) sustains fatal injuries after a fall on course – more at

Filed under: General — admin @ 12:48 am

Benjamin Winter (GER) suffered a fatal rotational fall at jump 20, with the horse being uninjured. We offer our condolences to Benjamin’s family and friends

The following is a translation of a statement by the Luhmühlen organising committee

The member of the Eventing Futures squad was flown by helicopter to the Trauma Hospital Hamburg Boberg. Unfortunately the doctors there were not able to stabilize him. TGL associate Michael Spethman showed deep concern: “As organizer, sponsor and riders, we are deeply dismayed and filled with great sadness. We will analyse the fall. The sport is not without risks, but for many years there has been active work to minimize these risk. The sport has many great moments, but this is a terrible moment. ”

The senior emergency physician voiced conjecture about how the accident happened: “Basically, the nature of the fall was fatal. Benjamin Winter’s fall was very unlucky. The speed and height of the obstacle were in my view are not decisive,” said Dr. Annette Lorey-Tews.

On questions regarding the general safety in eventing FEI Safety Advisor David O’Connor (USA) commented: “We knowingly choose this sport. It was a tragic accident, but we can not make the sport safer than life itself ”

The representative of the rider, Peter Thomsen, expressed his regret: “We are stunned. Benjamin has loved the sport. I think that it is in this sense that we should ride on”. This was confirmed by the mother of Benjamin Winter:” Benjamin has the lived for eventing and really looked forward to the four-star competition here in Luhmühlen. My son would wish that it goes on tomorrow”. In a meeting in the evening the riders decided that they want to continue in the competition in his spirit. A memorial ceremony is to be held at 11.00 clock at the showgrounds.
