Patrick Kittel wins again with Mustad LiBero
Another Victory for the swedish, another victory for Mustad LiBero
Patrik Kittel and his 11-year old gelding, Toy Story, won the third leg of the Western European League World Cup Dressage 2011/2012 series held yesterday in Stockholm, Sweden.
Kittel currently owns 13 Grand Prix-level horses at the base in Muenster, Germany, which he has been operating for the last 15 years. “I’m very lucky to have so many right at the moment” he said this afternoon, “Toy Story does not have a great amount of experience but he is very talented and he really took me by surprise today!” he pointed out.
Kittel says he still needs to build up the strength of this horse which he has had for the last two years, but he believes Toy Story has huge potential and plenty of room for improvement.
“I must say I’m impressed by Toy Story” he said afterwards. “He is my wife’s horse but he is a bit big for her and so he is for sale. In the meantime I’m riding him and happy about that. I won the Grand Prix at Falsterbo with him but after that I had to concentrate on Scandic, so Toy Story has not done a whole lot this year. I came to Stockholm with no great expectations at all - I hoped maybe to get in the top five, but it all went perfectly for us today!” he explained.
Toy Story was shod by the long-time Mustad ambassador Uwe Lukas and won the Stockholm event wearing the new Mustad LiBero shoes, size 3 front and hind. LiBero is the versatile shoe for sport and leisure that Mustad has designed thanks to the collaboration of an extended farriers team whose main objective has been to respect as much as possible the natural shape of the hoof, providing the best support and protection for the horse, while making farriers life easier when shoeing.
