Laura Klaphake & Catch Me If You Can

Laura Klaphake: “It was my mistake”

After the first German pair Simone Blum and DSP Alice had delivered a good performance in the timed competition of the WEG, the second German rider Laura Klaphake was less lucky. She and 10-year-old OS mare Catch Me If You Can by Catoki had a stop at the wall. “Up until then I had a great feeling,” so Klaphake. “But then she was not really before me and I was too far away and she could not jump. It was my mistake, there was not enough tension.”
National coach Otto Becker said: “She should have been more persistent, but the rest of the competition went as well as possible under the circumstances. Small mishaps like that can happen. Annoying but you cannot change them. And we are only at the beginning.”
