A sensationally successful Bundeschampionat lies behind the Hannoveraner horses. In Warendorf, they won five gold, four silver and four bronze medals. This makes Hannover the most successful studbook ahead of Holstein and Oldenburg. The Bundeschampions were San to Alati, Vogue, Macadamja, Final Dream and Dinathia.  

Both Bundeschampions of the stallions came from Hannover. In the class of four-year-old stallions, Hannoveraner horses triumphed across the board, with all medal winners carrying the Hannoveraner foal brand. Not for the first time, the two Secret sons San to Alati and Segantini had a neck-and-neck race. The result was the same as at the Hannoveraner Championships in Verden four weeks ago: San to Alati (breeder: Lena-Marie and Kerstin Klose, Burgwedel), bred out of a Belissimo M dam, came first with Mareike Mimberg and became Bundeschampion. Silver went to Segantini (breeder: Dr. Christine Feichtinger, Vaduz/LIE), who has a Fidermark dam and was impressively presented by Jessica Lynn Thomas. Third place went to My Milano by Millennium/De Niro (breeder: Johann von der Decken, Krummendeich) with Lukas Fischer, completing the all-Hannoveraner podium. Germany's best three-year-old stallion was the Vitalis/Fidertanz son Vogue (breeder: ZG Werth, Moers). The bay stallion, who had already shone at his short test in April this year and became Hannoveraner Champion four weeks ago, was masterfully presented by Leonie Richter. Macadamja by Morricone/San Amour (breeder: Heinrich Gießelmann, Barver) took the crown among the four-year-old mares and geldings. With Simone Kaiser in the saddle, the imposing black mare was one of the most striking horses in the Warendorf arena.

At her second appearance in Warendorf, Final Dream by Franziskus/Weltmeyer (breeder: Karin Storkamp, Ibbenbühren) won the Bundeschampionat for five-year-old dressage horses with rider Kira Goerens-Ripphoff. She coped very well with the conditions and excelled with an excellent performance in the final, after having been third in the qualification. The decision in the six-year-old class was exciting. Defending champion and reigning Hannoveraner Championess Boa Vista FRH by Bon Coeur/Scolari (breeder: Ingo Pape, Hemmoor) was narrowly beaten in the battle for the medals and finished second. ZINQ First Vienna FH by Vitalis/First Dance (breeder: Beekenhof GmbH & Co. KG, Bomlitz) took bronze. The Hannoveraner premium mare candidate danced in the arena with the successful young rider Lucie-Anouk Baumgürtel. For the first time, the Bundeschampionat for seven-year-old dressage horses was on the program. At the premiere, Famous K FRH by Finest/Londonderry (breeder: Martina Knetsch, Vorhop) with Stefanie Wittmann became Vice Bundeschampion. Discovered at the foal auction in Verden, the brown stallion had already been third last year. He was followed in bronze by another Verden auction foal: the Feedback/De Vito son Fun4ever (breeder: Gerd Pigge, Lastrup) and Borja Carrascosa. The half-brother of the licensed stallions Fiderstar, Foundation and Flavio Briatore found his current owners via the Verden stallion sales.

With a superior performance in the cross-country, the Diacontinus/Natiello xx daughter Dinathia (breeder: Werner Kaiser, Lüchow) became Bundeschampioness of six-year-old event horses, leaving the previous year's Bundes- and Vice Bundeschampion behind her. In the saddle of the expressive and athletic grey mare sat the Swedish world class rider Sara Algotsson Ostholt.

In addition to numerous other Hannoveraner top placings, the Cornet Obolensky/Lex Lugar son Cornet XL (breeder: Pferdezucht Dr. Rowold, Haselünne) was Vice Bundeschampion of six-year-olds show jumpers. Last January, the dark bay stallion had been one of the pearls in the jumping collection at the Verden Winter Auction. The stallion was ridden by Richard Vogel, who also secured the title with Cornet XL's stablemate Dax and a lead of 0.27 seconds.
