Beatrice Buchwald and Christine Arns-Krogmann's 9-year old Oldenburg mare Weihegold have won the 2014 Louisdor Cup Finals at the 2014 CDI Frankfurt on Sunday 21 December 2014. By winning the national Short Grand Prix class with 74.800%, Weihegold claimed the title of 2014 German Developing Grand Prix Horse Champion.
The black Don Schufro x Sandro Hit mare is taking Germany by storm. A year ago she won the Developing Prix St Georges horse championships at the same location, in 2014 the black mare was introduced to Grand Prix level and even once competed by coach Isabell Werth to upper seventy percentage scores. Buchwald and Weihegold are both newcomers to Grand Prix level but it doesn't show.
The panel of five judges placed the pair first with an almost three percentage point advantage. Hedda Droege and her home bred Westfalian mare Donatella (by De Koonig x Rubinstein) became the runners-up with a 71.940% score. Oliver Oelrich landed third place on young rider Florine Kienbaum's 10-year old Hanoverian gelding Doktor Schiwago (by Don Frederico x Weltruhm) with 68.380%.
