The highly acclaimed dressage series 'Derby Stars of Tomorrow' made a stop during the Holstein State Championships in Elmshorn. Entries are limited exclusively to U25 riders and eight-to-12-year-old young dressage horses who compete at S*** level in a warm-up test and the final qualification with the aim of making it easier for them to enter Grand Prix sport, and with the final being held in Münster as part of the AGRAVIS Cup.
In Elmshorn, distinguishing themselves admirably were the talked-about paring of Juliane Brunkhorst and Prince Enno (Prince Novelist x Sir Donnerhall). The nine-year-old from Oldenburg completed both tests with aplomb scoring 72.807% and 71.93% respectively.
Second place in the final qualification went to Susan Pape and the11-year-old son of Bellissimo M. The Westfalian danced to 70.351%. Alexandra Bimschas riding the 11-year-old Oldenburger Talandra's Rose (Self Made x Cordial Medoc – 70.210%) placed third.
