Torrey Pines Stables welcomes a new ride for Eric Lamaze. Filippa K (For Contest) joins the Canadian ranks after a period with Marcus Ehning and Michael Jung. The 11-year-old mare met her new rider during the Winter Equestrian Festival.
The Westphalian mare was born at Anne Knüsting’s breeding farm and then trained by Canadian Tonya Knüsting. She arrived at Marcus Ehning’s at the age of eight and together they competed in several CSIO5* events, such as St. Gallen (SUI) and Rotterdam (NED) in 2018, later winning a 1.55m event at the CSI4* in Gross Viegeln in the following year. Despite good results with Marcus, he did not feel he had enough time to devote to her, and Marcus Ehning handed over the reins to Michael Jung, Olympic eventing champion. The chestnut had not appeared in the ring for almost a year before she returned to the arena on the other side of the Atlantic with Eric Lamaze.
