Rookie of the year – Elin Ott
Usually, the Awards of the Year from the patrons’ association Swiss Team Trophy (STT) are presented this coming Saturday as part of the World Cup in Basel.
The following titles are awarded at this magnificent ceremony: Rider of the Year (most clear rounds at Nations Cups), Owner of the Year (most successful horse), Horse of the Year (jury’s pick), Rookie of the Year and Organizer of the Year (for a national tournament).
However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, things are a bit different this time around.
The STT decided to only award two of the titles. Only the Organizer and Rookie were announced. The responsible figures at the STT and the VSCR (Association of Swiss Concours Riders) selected the most popular national large event of 2020. The event selected was Paul Freimüller’s competition in Humlikon in the canton of Zurich. The tournament was not able to take place at an international level last year, which is why it was a candidate for the title. Humlikon had already won the award in 2004.
The Chalet-à-Gobet show jumping competition came in second place, followed by the one in Galgenen.
Zurich native Elin Ott was appointed the Rookie of the Year.
In 2020, the 21-year-old became the Swiss Young Riders Champion for the second time, having first done so in 2018. In the same year, she progressed from the youth team to the elite one. The awards will be officially presented to the two winners at the start of June during the CSIO5* in St. Gallen.
