In front of a large audience at the CHIO Aachen, the For Pleasure/Fabriano daughter Fit for Fun (breeder: Sigrd Crome-Sperling, Lutter a. Bbg.) was retired from the sport. With Portuguese Luciana Diniz, the State Premium mare was one of the best show jumpers in the world. At the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro 2016, the pair placed ninth in the individual classification, and twice they took part in the European Championships. Their victories in the Grand Prix of Doha/QAT 2015, Basel/SUI 2015, Al Rayan/GQT 2016, Rotterdam/NED 2016 and St. Gallen/SUI 2018 are unforgettable, and they celebrated second place in the Grand Prix at the Soers in 2017 and 2018. Fit for Fun and Luciana Diniz made their last appearance in the show jumping World Cup in Stuttgart/GER in 2019.

Before Fit for Fun's fantastic career in the sport began, the 2004 born chestnut had received an even 10 for free jumping at the mare performance test. Her very first foal was the privately owned stallion Camargo by Canturo (breeder: Ralf Jünger, Jüchen), who also celebrated successes up to 1.60 metres with Luciana Diniz and Nicola Philipaerts. "Fitty, Thank you so much! You taught me lightness, simplicity, love and gratitude. I love you! You’re the best horse in the world," Luciana Diniz wrote on the internet.
