Kumina Della Caccia: The new 7-year-old World Champion
At the FEI WBFSH Jumping World Breeding Championship for Young Horses 2023 in Lanaken, Belgium, Harry & Kumina Della Caccia (Kannan/ Toulon) clinched the gold medal in the 7-year-old Category.
Out of 203 entries, 40 made it to the final test on Sunday. Among them, eleven combinations advanced to the jump-off, with just four achieving a double-clear round. Philip Rüping, the silver medallist, set an impressive pace with his OS mare Casanina PS (Casalico/Chacco Blue), finishing in 35.90 seconds. However, Harry outshone him, securing the gold medal with a 0.6-second lead.
This victory holds special significance, as Bertram claimed the same Championship victory with Barnike nine years ago.
Kumina Della Caccia (bred by Coop Soc. Agr. La Caccia-Onius) arrived at Ballywlater Stables in Ireland as a yearling in 2017. In 2021, she appeared at the Aloga auction, where Adrienne Sternlicht became her new owner. Since then, Harry kept the ride.
