With eyes set on the path to being the best we can be, the Riba family is not short on dedication and hard work in all we choose to do. So when moments of recognition crop up, it’s hard not to beam with pride!
Riba aims to mould vaulters at international standard, with coach Jasyn Gertenbach and Chelsey Gertenbach being excellent examples, and our team having travelled far and often. Now recently, our own Asea Pozniakow and Erin Muller proved their mettle once again, this time at the CVI 1*, an international vaulting competition in Moorsele, Belgium, on the 27th and 28th of May 2017. Trained by Jasyn Gertenbach, and with assistance by Chelsey Gertenbach and Anna Aubaret, the hours put in earned Asea a silver medal and Erin a gold.
Girls, to say we’re proud of you is the understatement of the century!
A huge thank you to the yard where the girls trained, Voltigeiervereins Koln-Dunnwald, owned by former world champion Patrick Looser, top vaulter Torben Jacobs for his assistance in training in Cologne, lunger Ines Nawroth, their vaulting horse Daviana Z, coaches for their hard work and commitment thus far, and to Ernette Muller and Adine Strashun, for supporting their daughters all the way.
