Franziskus, Star Connection and Hamilton win in Wiesbaden/GER.

Two Hanoverians triumphed at the traditional Whitsun horse show in Wiesbaden-Biebrich/GER. In the dressage arena, Franziskus by Fidertanz/Alabaster (breeder: Elisabeth Albers, Löningen) and Germany's Ingrid Klimke secured the victory in Grand Prix and Freestyle.

 

In the cross-country, Star Connection by Chacco-Blue/Star Regent xx (breeder: Dr. Rainer Nitsch, Luhmühlen) and rider Michael Jung were the measure of all things. They won the CCI4*-S. With this result the world champion of the young eventing horses from 2014 returned impressively after a long injury break. A Hanoverian also won the U25 class: Hamilton by Heraldik xx/Furioso's son (breeder: Joachim Sommer, Immenhausen-Holzhausen) was ahead with rider Josefa Sommer.
