28|06|18 // Andreas Ostholt and So Is Et are back in force!

This was without doubt the highlight so far for Andreas Ostholt, coming second in the CCI4* at Badminton in 2016 with the Westphalian gelding So Is Et (Photo)

After Badminton we didn’t hear much about this pair and as a precaution due to fitness issues they didn’t start in any long events, even though they did come 5th in the CICO3* in Houghton Hall in 2017. However we are pleased to say So Is Et is now top fit again and they are in Strzegom competing in the CCI3*. Andreas Ostholt says the 15 year old Westphalian gelding (from Sunlight xx) is feeling really good and the event is to be a real test for them, this means he wants to FOD (finish on dressage score). In answer to what else is planned for the 2018 season Andreas says: “There are no concrete plans only ideas.” We are keeping our fingers crossed that the pair bring home the result they are looking for. Perhaps we will see Andreas Ostholt and So Is Et on the starter list for Burghley…..this might just be one of those ideas ;-)

Together with Andreas Ostholt and his team we are offering a special service during the event in Strzegom: FHA – Follow Him Around. We hope you enjoy the daily videos from the CCI3* in Strzegom
