"Reine Freude“ (pure joy) reigned in Verden. Three daughters of the mare with this name, which could not be more fitting, won the Herwart von der Decken Prize for the best mare family in Hannover. The dressage champion mare was Hann.Pr.A. Va Pensiera. The yellow and white sash of the jumping winner went to Hann.Pr.A. Saja.  

The 60 best three-year-olds from Hannover and the Rhineland were judged by the two presidium members Hergen Forkert and Matthias Klatt as well as breeding director Ulrich Hahne. Guest judge was the renowned breeder and trainer Johan Hamminga from the Netherlands. After the free jumping under the open sky, the jumping champion mare was awarded. She had already convinced at the free jumping competition in the Niedersachsenhalle in April, now she led the 2018 vintage with an almost perfect presentation: Hann.Pr.A. Saja by Stolzenberg/Calido (breeder: Zucht- und Reiterhof Münch, Homberg, exhibitor: ZG Schmidinger, Stade). Reserve Champion was the Cornet Obolensky/Contendro daughter Hann.Pr.A. Cornelie (breeder and exhibitor: Stefan Aust, Armstorf).

The quality of the mares with dressage horse pedigrees was high. Hann.Pr.A. Va Pensiera by Vitalis/Fürstenball (breeder and outfitter: Zuchthof Düvel, Katlenburg, Lindau) rolled up the field. As the fifth last competitor, the powerful full sister of last year's Bundeschampion Va'Pensiero triumphed and became dressage champion mare. The Reserve Champion mare Hann.Pr.A. Flavienne by Fürst Romancier/Decamerone (breeder: Dierk Hachmann, Bevern, stud farm Greim, Bärnau) was hardly inferior. A great success for the Greim Stud, which presented the Champion Mare of the Herwart von der Decken-Show last year and had discovered Hann.Pr.A. Flavienne at the foal auction in Verden. The best half-bred mare was Hann.Pr.A. Butt's Lemontree by Asagao xx/Heraldik xx (breeder and exhibitor: Prof. Dr. Volker Steinkraus, Ollsen), who not only goes back to the foundation mare Liebeslust like Andreas Dibowski's Olympic horses Leonas Dancer and FRH Butts Leon but also like Charlotte Dujardin's Mount St John Freestyle.

Only every four years the best mare family is awarded at the Herwart von der Decken-Show. The judging commission included Landoberstallmeister Dr. Astrid von Velsen-Zerweck, Burkhard Wahler and Dr Ludwig Christmann from the Hannoveraner Verband. The "Dieta" statuette will start its journey to the Rhineland. Three daughters of St.Pr.St. Reine Freude by Ravallo/Frühlingstraum (St.Pr.St. Quintera by Quaterback, St.Pr.St. Amore Mia by Ampere and Hann.Pr.A. Vaiana by Veneno) impressed the spectators and judges alike. Not only the expressive and strong moving bay horses themselves made them the winning family, but also their breeding significance. They are half-sisters of the dressage horse sire Fidertanz and go back to the foundation mare Jucking. Breeder and exhibitor is Tobias Schult from Hünxe. The reserve champion family is also high class: The three Stakkato daughters of the Hannoveraner Mare of the Year 2017, St.Pr.St. Sarah by Sherlock Holmes/Calypso II (breeder: Adolf Feldmann, Hänigsen, exhibitor: Georg Bräuer, Elze), L.St.-S Saint Christina, Hann.Pr.St. Serafina B and Hann.Pr.St. Spartanerin B have sport successes in the show jumping ring themselves and are full sisters of the internationally successful show jumper Saint Amour.
