Fritzens: Della Cavalleria OLD Second in the Grand Prix

Della Cavalleria OLD took second place in the Grand Prix of Fritzens, which is also the first evaluation test for the Austrian State Championships, with 71.22 percent.

She started off with a super trot tour and the judges gave correspondingly high scores. Unfortunately we made a couple of expensive mistakes later that pushed our score down. But I am still very proud of "Della" because she has done quite well in her first international Grand Prix season  when I think about her great performance most recently at the Olympic Games in Rio/BRA.

I'm looking forward to the Grand Prix Freestyle now which is the second evaluation test for the State Championships – we'll do our very best.

Belinda Weinbauer earned her victory in the Grand Prix with her Söhnlein Brillant MJ (72.24 percent) – and I congratulate her from my heart. She has only been riding the 14-year old Hanoverian gelding for a short time now. My EM team colleague Astrid Neumayer followed on third with her DSP Rodriguez auf Rang and Evelyn Haim-Swarovski took fourth place with Dorina (68.28). Fifth place went to Nikolaus Erdmann with Vienna A (67.18), sixth to Dr. Stefanie Palm with her Royal Happiness OLD (67.14).
