Fackeltanz OLD and Lobenswert pushed for power at the Bundeschampionate selection trial at Hofgut Allerer in Waakirchen, Germany, 2 - 4 June 2010. The scoring potential in the five year old division was much higher than in the 6-year old dressage horse test.
Belgian Carl Cuypers won the 5-year old division with Sissy Max-Theurer's Oldenburg licensed stallion Fackeltanz OLD (by Florencio x Feinbrand x Thymian xx). The duo achieved 8.5 for trot and walk, 9 for canter, 7.5 for submissiveness and 8.5 for general impression to total 8.40. Former European Young rider champion Jessica Werndl finished second with Royal Spirit, a Hanoverian branded Blue Hors Romanov x Weltgeist offspring. This charming pair achieved 8.0 with solid 8s for gaits, submission and general impression.
Christina Boos and the grey Westfalian gelding Lobenswert (by Lissabon x Athlet Z) aced the 6-year old class with 7.70. Felicitas Kirschner and the Bavarian mare Faccia (by Florestano x Weltmeyer) ranked second with 7.6 whereas Dutch rider Nars Gottmer finished third on Meggle's Lord d'Amour (by Lord Loxley x Champus) with 7.5. Gottmer has become a stable rider for German Grand Prix rider Dieter Laugks at Meggle stable in South Germany after responding to an advertisement in Eurodressage's Groom's Corner.
