Franklin - winner of qualifier for 4-year-olds
Yesterday, Franklin and Emma started the championship for 4 years old horses in Billund. They obtained 8.62 points, e.g. 9.5 for canter and 8.8 for rideability. The impressive scores resulted in victory in the class with a total of 44 equipages. Franklin has just returned to Denmark after staying in Holland at the Stable Witte during the breeding season.
Severo and Hot Shot W started the class for 5-year-olds. They placed second, scoring 8.20 points. Yet another show with a couple of great horses on to the semifinal in September. There is still another qualifier before the semifinal, where we also expect to start a few good young horses.
Ditte also participated in the show in Billund this weekend with her own horse Unicorns Delicious. Saturday, they won the MB0, scoring 70.64% and Sunday they placed third in MB1 with a score of 68.37%.
Romanova - outstanding in Verden
Last Friday, Romanova and her rider Rikke Dupont, finished as group winner and second in total at the Hanoverian Championship for 4-year-old mars and geldings. 71 horses started the class Friday, and Romanova and Rikke obtained 8.60 points. The 10 best equipages were on to the finals on Sunday.
In the finals, Romanova and Rikke made a superb performance, and they finished as winners of the class with impressive scores, e.g. 9.5 for trot, canter and rideability. The equipage has been selected for the Bundeschampionate in Warandorf, taking place at the beginning of September.
Danciano finished in the top at the finals
Danciano started the finals for 4-year-old stallions. He once again did really well and placed second with 8.90 points. He was awarded e.g. 9.0 for trot and 9.5 for submission and exterior.
Sezuan - the world's best 5-year-old
Sezuan showed his extreme talent when he won the finals in Verden for 5-year-olds on Saturday, scoring 9.76 points and he is now World Champion in his age group.
Even though Helgstrand Dressage has sold Sezuan, we are still very proud of him, and we are so happy about the great results. Congratulations on the outstanding results to his owner Gestüt Peterhof by Arletta Jasper Kohl and Edwin Kohl, and of course his rider Dorothee Schneider.
