Feingefühl became Hannoveraner Champion of five-year-old dressage horses.


Verden Championships

Feingefühl and Dolciario Hannoveraner Champions of Dressage Horses.

It was a victory for the favourites: In the strong field of five-year olds, Feingefühl by Fürstenball/Farewell III (breeder: Gaby Heye-Hammerlage, Belm) and her rider Sandra Kötter became the sovereign Hannoveraner Dressage Horse Champion. "I didn't think we would win with the big competition," Gaby Heye-Hammerlage said happily. It is the next highlight in the still young career of the expressive dark bay. Exactly two years ago, the Hannoveraner Premium Candidate became Reserve Champion Mare of the Herwart von der Decken-Show and won the Hannoveraner Riding Horse Championships for three-year olds. This was followed by a convincing victory at the Bundeschampionat in Warendorf. Two licensed stallions followed on second and third place: Vice champion became the athletic Fun4ever by Feedback/De Vito (breeder: Gerd Pigge, Lastrup), who was masterfully presented by Felix Hilmer. The half-brother of the Grande-Prize winner Foundation, who has meanwhile arrived at Grand Prix level with Germany’s Matthias Alexander Rath, has already entered the Verden auction stage twice. At the foal auction in 2015 and at the stallion sales in 2017 he was one of the pearls of the collection. Third place went to the son of Fürstenball/Totilas, Fürst Toto (breeder: Gestüt Lewitz, Mühlen), who competed in the very first horse show of his career in Verden. And he did so with an impressive performance: Isabel Freese rode the dark bay in trot to the day‘s high score of 9.0.


It was similarly exciting in the class of six-year-olds. Dolciario by Danciano/Don Frederico (breeder: Christin Eggersglüß, Soltendieck) recieved the highest overall score. The beautifully shaped stallion from the dam line of Sporthaus was sensitively guided through the lections by rider Eva Niklova. "He presented himself very evenly in his basic quality and has high rideability qualities," judge Anna von Holten-Jungheit praised the new Hannoveraner Champion of six-year-old dressage horses. No less than three geldings can call themselves vice champion in future.. Quintessential by Quantensprung/Donnerhall (breeder: Renate Lange, Petershagen), who was ridden by Jörn Kubelke; Don Mateo by Don Juan de Hus/Royal Highness (breeder: Axel Windeler, Verden-Walle) with rider Anna-Sophie Fiebelkorn, who had already won silver last year and placed third at the Bundeschampionat, and Fürst Flulidu by Fürstenball/Rotspon (breeder: Iris-Maria Berger, Stuttgart) with Sophie Duprée took second place with exactly the same total score.
