While many of the younger Verband stallions competed at the State Championships in Elmshorn at the weekend, Million Dollar by Plot Blue and Daymian by Darco travelled to the German Championships in Balve.
Million Dollar competed with Sophie Hinners in the ladies' championships, the pair ranked tenth in the final standings. "He jumped just fantastic," Sophie Hinners said after their rides. "Unfortunately, after a clear round at the start, we had one down in each of the other two tests." Nevertheless, she was highly satisfied with her growing partnership with the stallion: "He is incredibly ambitious and has a super attitude."
Daymian, bred by Matthias Wittke (Marienheide), competed in the medium tour over 1.40 metres with Richard Vogel and placed third once and silver in the final. We will inform you again here about the show schedules for the two stallions in the coming weeks.
