The 2019 Future Champions CDIO-PJYR Hagen, which served as an Olympic test event for Tokyo 2020, came to a conclusion on Sunday 16 June 2019 with Freestyle day.
In the Almased dressage stadium, music played almost the whole day, not just any music, but the wonderful freestyle music that sounded for the young dressage riders. In the Liselott & Klaus Rheinberger Foundation Prize, places one through four went to German talents. As expected, Semmieke Rothenberger won the age group of young riders, i.e. the U21, with Dissertation. Second went to Helen Erbe with Prince Kaspar, followed by Alexa Westendarp with Four Seasons and Lia Welschof with Linus K.
At the end of the dressage competitions at Future Champions, other young riders met for their freestyle in the Prize of the Professional Green BV, where the only Spanish rider, Natalia Bacariza Danguillecourt, with her nine-year-old dark chestnut gelding Romantico Ymas won the competition. Second place went to the German rider Henriette Schmidt and Rocky's Sunshine.
The Children rode out their final in a regular test. Allegra Schmitz-Morkramer with Lavissaro won this prize of the Horse Competence Center Germany ahead of Lisa Steisslinger with Havanna Negra and the Dutchwoman Lara van Nek with Amazing Comeback.
An annual highlight at the Future Champions are the LVM Masters of the national federations. Here you will find teams of different ages and disciplines that collect points together for a ranking. Thus the long-standing partner of the Hagen tournaments, the LVM insurance company from Münster, promotes the sense of unity between older and younger talents in the jumping and dressage saddles. The LV Weser-Ems secured this year's championship title.
The P.S.I. events will continue in autumn with the autumn tournaments of the Ankumer Dressur Club on 16-20.10.2019.
