Jumping: Young Rider: Kessler and Springsteen Take Top Two Spots in Austrian Young Rider Grand Prix By Joanie Morris

Lamprechtshausen, Austria - Building on their win in the Nations Cup at CSIOY Lamprechtshausen, the U.S. Young Rider Show Jumping Tour capped off a successful weekend with a one-two finish in the Young Rider Grand Prix. Reed Kessler took the top spot for the U.S. on Ligist, she jumped the only clear round in the jump-off for the win. Jessica Springsteen was second on Cincinnati La Silla, she had the fastest short-course round by more than five seconds, but had one rail to settle for second.

Catherine Pasmore and Karen Polle rounded out the top 10 in ninth and tenth respectively. Pasmore and Van David were a fraction faster in their four-fault first round effort, edging out their teammates, Polle on What Ever.

Jumped over a 1.45m track, the Young Rider Grand Prix featured 32 starters.

The European Young Rider Tour heads to CSIOY Hagen, in Germany, for the next week of competition June 15-18.
