In the qualifying test of the World Championship for 6 year old dressage horses Don Schufro once more proved his value. Amongst the ten highest ranked horses were two daughters, two grand daughters and a grand son of Don Schufro. The judges Wojchiec Markowski, Linda Zang, Maria Colliander and Mariette Sanders-van Gansewinkel elected Una Donna Unique (s.Don Schufro) as today’s best horse.
Moving towards the end of the competition the judging panel became more and more generous, which was very much to the benefit of the second placed horse, Soliere (Sandro Hit x Donnerhall). In spite of his slow hind legs in trot, this Mecklenburg approved Hanoverian stallion, ridden by Eva Möller, received 9.12, only slightly less than Una Donna Unique (9.46), last year’s runner up, once more presented by Andreas Helgstrand.
Followed by last year’s Bundeschampion Blickpunkt (8.50), presented by Eva Möller. One of the best dressage horses of this age group, Skovens Rafael (s.Blue Hors Romanov), received 8.46 and took seventh place, followed by Rebelle (s.Don Schufro) and Du Soleil (s.De Niro).
