The German 1-2-3 was completed by Fabienne Lütkemeier in the saddle on D’Agostino FRH (78.886).


“The mare was fantastic and she’s in the best form ever,” said the “Dressage Queen” when praising her “gold horse” in Rio and was particularly pleased with the “outstanding piaffe passage tour”.

It was obvious for all to see that D’Agostino loves this arena.”
