Hannoveraner Champion of three-year old stallions: Va'Pensiero and rider Hannah Laser.


Verden Championships

Rock Festival and Va' Pensiero Hannover's best three-year-olds.

Rock Festival by Rock Forever/Fürstenball  (breeder: Joline Durand, Hörstel) won the Hannoveraner Championships for three-year old mares and geldings with great ease. Breeder Joline Durand took the opportunity to present her powerful and athletic bay in the Verden dressage ring herself. Vice champion became Bond Street by Bon Coeur/Don Index (breeder: Harry Heitmann, Kreepen), who was born less than ten kilometres from the show ground. The big-framed chestnut with an impressive canter was ridden by Friederike Tebbel.


The three-year old stallions had a neck-and-neck race. Va'Pensiero by Vitalis/Fürstenball (breeder: Zuchthof Düvel, Katlenburg-Lindau) collected scores of 9.0 and better throughout and was awarded for this great performance with the yellow and white champion's sash. In the saddle of the impressive stallion was Hannah Laser. Only one tenth of a point behind was the son of Revolution/Besltaf, Rockabye (breeder: Sally Hjort Schultz, Bolderslev/DEN). Together with his rider, Sina Aringer, the bay got the highest score of the day, 10, for his canter.
