In Verden, the Hannoveraner champions of riding, dressage, and jumping horses were crowned. One day after the qualifications, the young talents competed for the coveted yellow and white winner’s sashes in the exciting finals in the dressage arena and around the showjumping course.

The title of Hannoveraner champion of three-year-old mares and geldings went to the Secret x Dancier son Sedamo K (breeder: Hof Kleemeyer GbR, Sudweyhe), presented by Anne Maria Kleemann. Vice Champion was Quelindo by Quantensprung/Werlindo (breeder: Willi Schulz-Hausbrandt, Wittingen) with Jacob Schenk in the saddle. Third place went to another Secret son, So Dynamic out of a Welser dam (breeder: Sven Hörnschemeyer, Northeim). The bay was ridden by Kira Goerens-Ripphoff.
Hannoveraner champion of three-year-old stallions was the Bon Coeur x Fürst Nymphenburg son Bonjour (breeder: Bernhard Dodenhof, Bülstedt), who left the Verden stallion sales last year as a premium stallion for Denmark. Eva Möller was in the saddle of the strong moving black stallion. Second place went to Le Bonheur by Livaldon x Alabaster (breeder: Willi Rose, Bruchhausen-Vilsen) with Denise Christin Behr. The St. Schufro x Hofrat son St. Athletique (breeder: Friederike Peters, Ahstedt) completed the trio on the podium with Heiko Klausing.

The class leader of the 2017 vintage was Vitalis x De Niro son Vitalos (breeder: Josef Bramlage, Sögel), skilfully presented by Leonie Richter. He was followed by the licensed and performance-tested stallion Fiducioso (Foundation x Dancier, bred by Guido Kamphorst, Meppen) with Jessica Lynn Thomas. Third place went to Fünf Sterne Royal (Fürst Romancier x Sandro Hit, bred by Henning Schmidt, Barnstedt). The chestnut from the Warendorf State Stud was presented by Kevin Thomas.
The class for four-year-old mares and geldings saw the favourite come out on top – last year's winner and Bundeschampion Rock Festival (Rock Forever x Fürstenball), ridden by his breeder Joline Durand. Second place went to the Benicio x Sandro Hit daughter Bea (breeder: Iris Borchers, Verden) with Malin Weiß. The owners had already recognised the great potential of the Hannoveraner premium candidate as a foal and bought the filly at the Verden foal auction four years ago. Final Dream (Franziskus x Weltmeyer), bred by Karin Storkamp, and brought to Verden by Kira Goerens-Ripphoff, came in third... To read the complete article you need to be a subscriber
