Two dressage stallions and one jumper colt received a positive verdict. The stalions were first presented in hand on hard surface, then in freedom, followed by a walk presentation in hand. On 31 March they were ridden under saddle by their own rider as well as a test rider.
The approved dressage bred colts are a nameless bay stallion by Franziskus x Rubinstein), bred by Heinrich Sauer and owned by Cornelia Stryczek. This colt is out of the same dam as Grand Prix star Damon Hill.
