Bundeschampionate

Dark Gambler and rider Antonia von Baath Bundeschampion of five-year old eventing horses.

In the top-class field of the five-year-old eventing horses all three medals went to Hannover. Dark Gambler by Diacontinus/Stalypso (breeder: Andreas Middelkampf, Grönloh) with rider Antonia von Baath became Bundeschampion. Silver went to the licensed stallion Abraxas by Araldik/Now or Never M (breeder: Manfred Schäfer, Köchingen), who was presented by Pia Münker. Both horses once found their way to their owners' stables at an auction in Verden. Dark Gambler was sold at the 2015 Elite Foal Auction, and Abraxas was auctioned off in May of the same year as a foal and two years later as a stallion at the stallion sales. The successful eventing rider Pia Münker was also in the saddle of the third-placed Balou's Mascot M by Balou du Rouet/Cook du Midour AA, who was born at her father Franz-Josef Münker's place in Meerbusch.

 

In the Bundeschampionat of six-year-old show jumpers, Everton PJ by Embassy/Light On (breeder: Pferdezucht Dr. Jacobs GbR, Bierbergen) jumped to bronze with rider Alexa Stais.
