Also from the point of view of the Holsteiner Verband Hengsthaltungs GmbH, the state championship for show jumpers was very successful. All of the stallions who competed reached the finals of their age group.

The three four-year olds Chezarro, Keaton and Corfu de la Vie made the start. All three stallions could place in the qualification. The Cumano son Corfu (8.6) and Keaton by Kannan (8.3) took fifth and ninth place in the Final.

In the classification for five-year olds, the Verband stallion Crack by Cornet Obolensky caused a sensation. With a sovereign round, the grey stallion won the first section of the qualification with a 9.0. In the final, a misunderstanding at the very last obstacle between Crack and Max prevented him from entering the second round.

Won the qualification with 9.0: Crack and Maximilian Gräfe.

The Holsteiner Verband Hengsthaltungs GmbH sent the Casall son, Castle Creek, to the State Championships for six-year-old show jumpers. In the qualifier, the bay stallion was only narrowly beaten and finished second with a score of 8.9.
