Pius Schwizer will no longer have his top ride Carlina (Carvallo x Landgraf I) at his disposal. According to studforlife.com the owners of Carlina, Pro Horse International, have not been happy as the mare has not lived up to their expectations. The owners are open to selling the horse, but for now the horse is placed with Irish rider Trevor Coyle.
As a young horse Carlina was with Philipp Le Jeune, but the last years she has been seen under Schwizer. Last year Schwizer and Carlina won the World Cup qualifiers in Oslo and in Helsinki. This year they have been a part of the Swiss Nations Cup teams in La Baule, St.Gallen and Aachen, and they ended third in the World Cup final in Den Bosch.
