Gold for Neverland and final placings in all three divisions
The Bundeschampionate in Warendorf: Our stallions and their offspring shine in the finals!
Wow! Neverland WE becomes Bundeschampion of six-year-old dressage ponies! The Breeders' Forum reports:
"Already in the final qualification of the six year old dressage ponies there was no getting past Neverland WE under Sophie Luise Duen and also in today's final on the dressage ring in Warendorf the highly decorated son of FS Numero Uno - Champus K should be able to show his top performance level again. With a final score of 8.4, the multiple Oldenburg State Champion won under the 16-year-old daughter of the Duen family, who owns the elegant black bay. The duo celebrated a flawless round in the arena, only a short lapse in the second outside canter, which the rider was able to correct quickly, was noticeable. Dressage expert Dr. Dietrich Plewa, who is available as a public commentator for the last time this year, praised the impressive lateral appearance of the winning stallion of the Weser-Ems licensing 2018 as well as the dynamic and uphill performance. The jury singled out the walk as a clear highlight. Clearly overfooted with very good freedom of the shoulders, sure-footed in all situations - that was worth a 9.0 to the judges. For trot and permeability they awarded 8.5, for canter and permission 8.0 each."
Casino Grande proves again his hereditary performance with three finalists.
The first is Crystal Blue OLD, State Champion in Rastede and serial winner in tests for young show jumpers. This mare by Casino Grande out of Miss Blue (Mr. Blue x Landor S) has an outstanding jumping manner and placed in the final of five-year-old show jumpers. The judges found words of praise:
"Crystal Blue OLD is a horse with a very positive attitude towards jumping. Light-footed in its canter, the horse loose at the jump and rationally dividing the jump."
The final ride under Jannes Schultewolter received a score of 8.4.
Diamant de Plaisir II can even go one better and placed in the final with a score of 8.6. The judges praised his great canter, which is beautifully laid out in the uphill. In addition, they emphasised the powerful hind leg movements.
The two mares Wild West Candy Rose (breeder, rider and owner: Johanna Wetjen-Sanders) and FBW Cajuga under the saddle of Mareike Pape (breeder and owner: Regina Engelberth) placed in the final of the six-year-old cross-country horses. Both are sired by Casino Grande.
Top mare First Date OLD by For Dance x Wolkentanz placed in the final of the five-year old dressage horses. Veronika Steinhoff scored 8.5 and the mare, bred by Hans-Hermann Lagershausen, was placed in the Bundeschampionat Final for the third year in a row.
For Dance also had a second finalist in the four-year-old mare and gelding classes. The Westphalian Champion Mare For Joy (For Dance x Detroit) bred and owned by Andrea Krehenwinkel, who also took a seat in the saddle herself, convinced with a " comfort feeling" in the saddle, which was also accentuated by the outside rider.
Congratulations to all riders, breeders and owners. Your horses belong to the elite of German riding horses!
