German 21-year-old new rider——Guido Klatte

Time:2017-04-24 Writer:admin

Omaha World Cup finals were full of exceptional performances, many of them coming from long time respected professionals, but one of these riders made a huge jump in the equestrian scene. Guido Klatte, the 21yr old from Germany shows the world that he was not in Omaha by luck but rather hard work and talent.


Guido represented Germany alongside some of the most respected riders in the world, including his coach, Marcus Ehning, Ludger Beerbaum, Markus Brinkmann, and Christian Heineking. Despite making his World Cup Finals debut at just 21 years old, however, Guido was the highest-placing German rider, finishing sixth overall with his10-year-old Oldenburg gelding Qinghai.


The youngster entered the event knowing what and who he would be up against, it didn’t take long for Guido to garner some serious respect. The youngest rider in the competition, he rode his mount to two clear efforts in each of the final’s first two rounds.

The younger Klatte pursued football until he was a teenager.


Guido was riding a little bit when I was a small kid, and playing football until he was about 13. Then he started riding seriously after seeing his sister coming home every weekend with all the ribbons and the prize money, and he thought, That looks really cool and a lot of fun.


Guido and Qinghai helped each other achieve special titles in Europe. Together, they claimed the 2013 Bundeschampionat (the German Championship for Young Horses), which honoured Qinghai as a 6-year-old, and the 2016 European Young Rider Individual Championship, which recognised Guido. They continued their quick ascent up the ranks thanks, in part, to a trip to America, during which Guido was able to earn valuable World Cup ranking points while competing in California, including a win in the $52,500 Coachella Valley Classic CSI 4* at HITS Thermal.


After such a huge success in Omaha, he has even loftier goals.“Everyone hopes to ride in the Olympic Games, and that’s also my goal,” Guido said. “Last year, my goal was to have a good World Cup season. The standard is higher [at the World Cup Finals]. You compete against all these top riders, and if you can have success and make it here, then you know where you are and where you stand.” (NF Magazine)
