The Holsteiner Horse Days are a highlight on the calendar of breeders and riders alike, hosting the elite mare show as well as the Holsteiner State Championships for dressage and jumping horses. We have put together the new champions for you:
She had every reason to beam: Zuzana Zelinkova in the saddle of seven-year-old Ekatharina by Casall-Montender (Prof. Dr. Hartwig Schmidt). Once sold through the Glantz & Gloria auction, Ekatharina now returned to Holstein to become State Champion. Congratulations!
Marten Witt definitely put his best foot forward over the weekend as he presented the home-bred horses to the best advantage resulting in many wins and placings as well as two State Champions, one of them being six-year-old Cortez by Casall-Corrado I.
He was one of the most talked about horses competing in the State Championships: five-year-old Claas by Clarcon-Corrado I, bred by the Witt family and impressively shown by Marten Witt.
She had good reasons to be happy: In superior style, Thea Jelcic rode four-year-old stallion L.B. Dante by Darco de Revel-Casco to win the Holsteiner State Champion title. L.B. Dante was bred by Sven Völz. Congratulations on this success!
San Cloud's Lucky (Han.) by San Amour-Wolkenstein II bred by Helder Carvalho became State Champion of the six-year-old dressage horses. The appealing bay was shown by his owner, Sheeren Giese.
The Cascadello I offspring (damsire: Ramirado) headed the field of the five-year-old dressage horses under the saddle of his breeder-owner, Sonja Franzenburg-Much.
