Bobby arrived in our stable at the end of the 2009 season. Until then he had really only been a jumping horse. He jumped carefully and with good technique. He is a quiet and relaxed fellow in the stable. In training he is very sure of himself and will now and then make the most of having a little buck when he feels good. With his easy and economical gallop along with his courageous attitude and his jumping ability he has everything to become a good eventer. Bobby started his first eventing season as a 6 year old. He collected lots of valuable experience in smaller competitions. He was in the final at the Bundeschampionate and even placed in a CIC*. He then backed this up with good placings in CIC** competitions. He ended the 2011 season by taking part in the World Young Event Horse championships in Le lion d’Angers in France. In 2012 we won the Westfalen Masters in Velen. Further Bobby won the Indoor Derby at the German Masters in Stuttgart.
In the 2013 season he started to get serious and showed he was comfortable at ***. He is always fast across country as he loses no time at the fences. At the CCI*** in Boekolo he showed us he has the stamina for longer courses.
In the 2014 season he showed what he is capable of by winning the very tough CCI**** in Pau, also my first 4 * win- a phenomenal experience.
In 2015 Bobby was constantly in second place: CCI**** Badminton, CIC*** Luhmühlen and CICIO*** Aachen. But then he showed us what he is made of at the European Masters in Blair Castle and won with the Team.

In 2016 Bobby showed us what he can do by winning a CIC3*. In Luhmühlen we were German Reserve Master and in Aachen a good result for our last outing before Rio. The Olympic Games in Rio was an amazing and special highlight. After a nice dressage test and a cross country round that started beautifully, unfortunately we had a run out at the last water. However, following a lovely clear round show jumping, we won team silver.

Bobby came out of the winter fit and motivated in 2017 and conquered the absolutely gigantic Badminton CCI****  cross country course. He showed his top form in Aachen as well, winning the CISCO***. At the European championships in Strzegom he performed incredibly, coming home as individual European champions!

In 2018 Bobby won the Event Rider Masters CIC*** competition in Wiesbaden and was reserve Champion at the German Championships in Luhmühlen.

At the World Games in Tryon, USA he gave me a fantastic cross country ride that I will never forget. Taking a rail at the last jump meant no gold but instead we came home with the individual bronze medal.

In 2019 Bobby showed his experience by snapping up his second win in the Aachen CCIO4*. At the European Masters in Luhmühlen he shone in all 3 phases and won both the team and individual titles. Bobby and Supreme Rock (with Pippa Funnell) are the only 2 horses that to win these 2 titles in a row. Bobby is such a fabulous partner, every ride is pure joy!

With the 2020 Olympics postponed, the year went differently than planned. With the victory of the CCI4*S competition in Strzegom, Bobby was able to keep his qualification result for the Olympic Games. He also convinced in Pratoni del Vivaro with a start-finish victory in the CCI4*-S. Due to the few starting possibilities – because of the Covid 19 pandemic – I concentrated on keeping him loose and supple. He still wants to be ahead in cantering on the hill and in rides!

After my fall at Baborowko in the spring of 2021, our dream of competing in the Olympics was unfortunately dashed. At our comeback in Arville, Bobby went fantastically in all three sub-disciplines, and we were able to win the competition for us. At the European Championships in Avenches we won the team silver medal!


In 2022, 17-year-old Bobby started the season fresh with a victory in the CCI4*-S in Oudkarspel. In May in Pratoni de Vivaro the misfortune happened: he injured himself so badly during the cross-country ride while cantering that he had to end his career. We were very sad and affected, but still we are thankful that he can spend his retired life with us on the pasture.
