Daniel Deußer had already won the MERCEDES GERMAN MASTER in 2013. This time around he was on the saddle on the only nine-year old mare Happiness van T Paradijs and also went clear in the jump-off which only three competitors managed to reach. “Three years ago it was a dream and today’s win feels a little bit better,” said the elated Daniel Deußer. The team bronze medallist at the Olympics in Rio has only been riding the horse since July.
In third place behind Maelle Martin was the up-and coming German rider, Jan Wernke who, riding the 10-year old gelding Nashville HR, notched up eight faults in the jump-off.
“That was a great performance,” congratulated Jürgen Walker, Head of Car Sales at the Mercedes-Benz dealership in Stuttgart and was very grateful for the “outstanding partnership and proud to be able to support the class.”
