Michael Jung takes on elite event horse from fellow German rider

Top German eventer Julia Krajewski has lost the ride on one of her elite string, with Michael Jung taking over the reins.

The 11-year-old gelding Chipmunk FRH, who was produced by Julia from a four-year-old to recording numerous wins at three-star (now four-star), will be ridden by Michael this season.

Julia said after some “very emotional months” she has lost the ride on “this very special horse”.

“Today [5 February] is a very sad day as Chipmunk FRH is leaving us to go to his new home,” said a statement from Julia, 30.

“After six very successful years together, the contract I had with the owner expired, was not renewed for personal reasons of the owner (which I can understand) and it was decided to sell Chipmunk.
