At the third edition of the Hannoveraner Championships of young eventing horses, Dora GS and rider Paula Fatteicher took the title in the four-year-old class. The five-year-olds were won by Diacondiva and rider Ann-Catrin Bierlein, while the six-year-olds were won by Diadina and rider Andreas Dibowski. The venue was Luhmühlen.
The four-year-olds determined their champions in test for riding horses with cross-country jumps. The Dancier/Floriscount-daughter Dora GS (breeder: Bernd Gehrdau-Schröder, Stelle) and Paula Fatteicher convinced all along the line with a score of 8.6. On this occasion, the talented bay was awarded the candidacy for the Hannoveraner Premium. Second place went to Calia by Carridam/Quaid (breeder: Klaus Dierks, Ahnsbeck). Only in this year’s January, the bay found a new owner at the Verden auction. Anna von Beauvais presented her masterfully and was rewarded with a final score of 8.5. Third place went to Harmony CB by Helium/Samba Hit (breeder: ZG couleur de bohème, Watt/SUI) and Anna-Luisa Millies (7.9).
The horses born in 2018 competed in a cross-country test for young horses class A**. With a lead of 0.30 points, the Diacontinus/Sunlight xx daughter Diacondiva (breeder: Johannes Hilmer, Rullstorf) and Ann-Catrin Bierlein took the title of Hannoveraner Champion (8.80). The Hannoveraner premium mare gave birth to a foal last year before she came to the successful young rider's stable in Warendorf. Two talents shared second place with a score of 8.50: Booze Buddy by Balou Peggio/Valentino (breeder: Heinrich Reisinger, Gersten), who was the best four-year-old in Rüspel last year with Wiebke Jaspers in the saddle, and Kasparow by Karajan/Diacontinus (breeder: Friedrich Thiesse, Steimbke) with Antonia von Baath.
It was pouring with rain when the Diarado/Silvio daughter Diadina (breeder: Dieter Jennrich, Seevetal) and Andreas Dibowski started in the cross-country test for young horses class L. The two mastered the demanding course with ease and won the yellow and white winner's sash of six-year-olds with a score of 8.80. The team Olympic champion had discovered the Hannoveraner premium candidate at the November auction in Verden last year. The Valentino/Heraldik xx-daughter Viva L'Amour (breeder: Heinz-Dieter Kullmann, Zetel) followed in second place. Trained carefully by Nadine Marzahl and already placed at the Bundeschampionat, she received a score of 8.40. The successful trainer had two reasons to celebrate, she also sat in the saddle of Deliah IOH by Diacontinus/Escudo (breeder: Ira and Olaf Hagemann, Stade, 8.00). The typey grey mare was third after finishing second last year.
