No one's ever made a secret that his parents bankroll his riding... not sure how this is some kind of revelation, considering that it applies to about 99% of the other under-35 people at the international level.

After watching Karl's round, then going back and watching a few from 2022 with Julien, the mare didn't do that extreme kick out/stretch with her hind end over the jumps when Julien had her. That was almost the first thing I noticed during Karl's first few jumps.

I'm not exactly sure if that means anything, but it's interesting that her style has changed between the two riders. She seems more uphill, collected and put together front to back with Julien - which may be why the hind end stayed tight over the fence. Could also be the change in bridle - def seemed more rideable in the hackamore.

Dunno - maybe someone more knowledgeable has a guess

A guess? LOL. Perhaps the fact that Julian is an unbelievable rider and Karl is a spoiled brat who loves the sound of his own voice more than his horses.

Having recently been in the audience when julien epaillard won the global champions super grand prix: Karl Cook hasn't a hope with that mare. Julien's way of riding and training is very different as he rides at a much quicker pace - but his accuracy is incredible. Alot of the top professionals would struggle to emulate his approach.

Sure, if this was on AOL in 1996... but a bit "dated" now, to say the least.

Karl makes quite an effort to promote himself as a Billionaire...whats most amusing is that USEF has less than 100,000 active members and he has over 300,000 Insta followers... :shock:

Heres what he submitted to USEF:

Hometown: Rancho Santa Fe, Calif.
Birthday: 12/25/1990
Sport/Disciplines: Jumping
Karl Cook started riding at the age of 8 with his mother and sister, quickly developing a lifelong passion for horses. He had a successful junior and young rider career, competing in the 2007, 2008, and 2009 FEI North American Youth Championships and winning double gold in 2007 and team gold and individiual silver in 2008.

Cook has scored numerous top results throughout his professional career. He has competed in three FEI World Cup Finals: 2013, 2015, and 2017. In 2016, Cook made his senior Nations Cup debut at Langley (CAN) with Tembla. In 2022, Cook was again on the NetJets® U.S. Jumping Team at Langley (CAN), riding Coachella 4. In 2023, Cook was on the winning U.S. team at the Nations Cup in San Juan Capistrano (USA) and helped secure third-place finishes in Langley (CAN) and Falsterbo (SWE) riding Kalinka van't Zorgvliet.

Cook trains out of his <Mommie's> Pomponio Ranch in San Gregorio, Calif., where <his mommies> business breeds, raises, trains, and sells world-class jumping horses. [words in <> were omitted] :lol:

Some more:
Julien Epaillard’s 11-year-old success mare Caracole de La Roque (Zandor Z x Kannan) has been sold to the US, and will in the future be seen under Karl Cook, Écurie Mathy announced on social media today.

On their official Instagram account, Écurie Mathy wrote: "Écurie François Mathy wishes a lot of success to <Signy Ostby> Karl Cook new owner of the exceptional mare Caracole de La Roque <whom she bought for her son like all the other horses he has ridden so far in his life> who leaves our stables tomorrow to Pomponio Ranch in California. Have a safe trip Caracole."

Caracole de La Roque was born at Michel Hecart’s farm near Caen, on the west coast of France. Michel’s daughter Adeline rode the mare as a youngster, before her father took over the reins when Caracole turned seven. When Caracole de La Roque was eight, Hecart gave Epaillard the ride on the talented mare – and she went from jumping 1.30m classes at the end of 2021 to less than a year later be selected to represent France at the FEI Jumping World Championship 2022 in Herning, Denmark. “She is an absolute superstar of a horse,” Epaillard told World of Showjumping in an interview last year.

With Epaillard in the saddle, Caracole de La Roque had an incredible 2022-season. The two were triple clear and secured the victory for France in the CSIO5* 1.60m Henders and Hazel Nations Cup at Knokke Hippique, won the CSI5*-W 1.60m Longines FEI Jumping World Cup™ in Madrid and in Lyon, as well as the CSI5*-W 1.60m Longines Grand Prix of Lyon. Other notable victories included the CSI4* 1.55m Grand Prix du Département de La Manche in St-Lô, the CSI4* 1.55m Prijs TM² Equestrian Grand Prix at Sentower Park and the CSI3* 1.50m Grand Prix presented by Oliva Nova Beach & Golf Resort in Oliva Nova. At the FEI Jumping World Championship 2022 in Herning, the two won the opening speed leg, eventually finishing 23rd individually.

Haras de La Roque declined to comment on the sale.

ya'lllllll correct me if I'm wrong but I do believe the mare is back in a hackamore. Just watched the round from tonight at DIHP and it sure looked like it. Hard to see on video but I had to chuckle if it's true.
