Atop the Baden-Württemberg bred 12-year old gelding FBW Daktari, the two-time European U-25 champion kept her rivals at bay on both days in the Hanns-Martin-Schleyer-Halle. 72.511 percent points on Thursday and 72.140 percent points on Friday – no other rider got close to the scores. “I haven’t ridden so many grand prixs so that today it was important to get a feeling of confidence. And that’s what happened,” said the overjoyed winner.
Second in the final, like the day before, was Florine Kienbaum on the Hanoverian gelding Doktor Schiwago (69.060) ahead of Maire Carolin Beuth in the saddle on the Trakehner gelding Hofglanz (68.800). The German head dressage coach, Monica Theodorescu was very satisfied with the standard of the riding. “We once again had a wonderful final in Stuttgart. The series has already produced a number of Olympic riders.” Her counterpart for the U-25s, Sebastian Heinze added, “We’re very excited to see where Lisa-Maria and her Daktari go from here.”
