The two brothers Lucas und Wilton Porter (USA) had already achieved one victory and two second places so far in the International Show Jumping at the GLOCK HORSE PERFORMANCE CENTER. Today the success story continued with another victory, because no one was able to beat Lucas Porter in the  GLOCK’s 2* Tour over 1.45 m.

He managed a perfect round with his agile Zangersheide mare B Once Z and the time of 65.25 seconds was plenty for first place. “Today my horse made the difference”, said the younger of the two Porter brothers. “She’s extremely fast, careful and it’s easy to take tight turns with her. She did a perfect job.” Were the winner’s words of praise for his horse.
