Hendrik Sosath: “When I ride Casino Berlin, I’m always told that he’s a horse for the “big tour”. Everyone is enthusiastic about his jumping ability. He doesn’t seem to need a big effort, even at the Grand Prix level. I’m happy to ride such an exceptional horse. We built him up slowly and it’s paying off now. We are growing better and better together and are improving every year.
He is always easy to deal with, but is still a “boss” and is always motivated in daily work.”
