The 5-year old Frieda and the 6-year old Boulevard de la Croisette were the winning horses in the Bundeschampionate qualification classes held at the 2016 Middle German Regional Championships in Prussendorf, Germany, on Saturday 9 July 2016. The turn-out in Prussendorf was very small with only six horses in total contesting the L and M-level tests.
Canadian Pia Fortmuller, who has German roots and currently lives in Germany training with Jonny Hilberath, rode her boyfriend Lars Busch's Hanoverian mare Frieda (by Furstenball x Rouletto) into the winner's circle in the 5-year old division. The black mare scored a total of 8.1 and got 7.5 for walk, 8.5 for trot, 8 for canter and submission and 8.5 for general impression. Sissy-Nadine Selle and Jens Graubohm's Oldenburg stallion Dr. Jingles (by Repertoire x Depardieu) were the runners-up with 7.5. The bay stallion got 7 for walk, 8 for trot, and 7.5 for canter, submission and general impression.
In the 6-year old division only one horse competed. Julia Schonherr presented Katrin Knetsch's Oldenburg stallion Boulevard de la Croisette (by Belissimo M x Sir Donnerhall) and scored a total of 8.1. The dark bay stallion got 8s for walk, trot, canter and submission and 8.5 for general impression.
