Charlotte Jorst of the United States has bought Lorenzo, ranked No. 7 in the world with Spain’s Severo Jurado Lopez as a prospect for the American team at the 2018 World Equestrian Games in Tryon, North Carolina.
Charlotte confirmed the purchase of the 11-year-old German Sport Horse gelding from Severo who had ridden Lorenzo on Spain’s team at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, placing fifth overall. She also disclosed the purchase of a two-year-old stallion named Gaston by Grand Galaxy Win.
Charlotte, 52 years old who lives in Reno, Nevada confirmed to dressage-news.com the purchase of Lorenzo that Severo began competing at Big Tour in February 2016 and won seven times in 21 starts. Severo works as a trainer with Andreas Helgstrand, the Danish rider, trainer and dealer who is preparing to establish a sales operation in Wellington, Florida.
Lorenzo will be based in San Diego, California where Charlotte is re-building a house she plans to move to.
She will train with Laurie Falvo, the trainer that Steffen Peters first worked with when he came to the United States.
“I want to do WEG next year and be ranked in the top 10 in the world,” Charlotte told dressage-news.com.
She already owns Akeem Foldager that was ridden by Andreas Helgstrand in the European Championships in 2013 and Charlotte has had success in the past year in the United States.
She also owns Nintendo that was among the top ranked for the U.S. championships last week but she opted to stay home for the birth of her first grand child. She is ranked 51st in the world on Nintendo.
Charlotte competed Vitalis as a six-year-old in the world championships in 2013 which she later sold to Germany and was ridden by Norway’s Isabel Freese to win the 2016 Nürnberger Burg-Pokal, the German championship for horses aged seven to nine years.
The Danish-born Charlotte moved to the United States and with her husband founded a designer watch company that they sold for almost a quarter-billion dollars.
She has since launched Kastel, a sport clothing company.
