2017 CDIO-PJYR Hagen

With Nations' Cup competitions in four age divisions at the 2017 CDIO-PJYR Hagen "Future Champions" at Hof Kasselmann, the programme was action packed. On Friday 16 June 2017 the final two Nations' Cup titles were decided. Both the German childrens' team as well as the experienced pony team grabbed the victory.

German Children Rule

On Friday morning 16 June 2017 the third dressage Nations Cup title went to host country. The German Children’s team, supervised by Chef d’Equipe Caroline Roost, was nominated by the national federation with riders between the ages of 12 and 14, riding horses and competing at L-level.

Franziska Haas from Hellschen not only gave the best performance in the competition, but also for the German team. Aboard Lorentino she scored 73.500%. She was at the top, ahead of Sanne Van Der Pols who, with Excellentie earned 71.222 % for the Dutch team. Joya Catharina Stolpmann from Quickborn and Helena Ernst from Bottrop received 70.778 and 70.66, and with that, placed third and fourth.

“We are all very happy that the children could use their success from yesterday, and raise the level again today”, explained the team leader Roost. “Yesterday one or the other was quite nervous during the competition, but today they were all mentally strong enough to bring their best performances in the competition arena.”

Second place went to the Dutch team with Van Der Pols, together with her countryman Lara Van Nek and Chiel Van Bedaf under the supervision of  Chef d’Equipe Monique Peutz. The Russian team held the bronze position with Chef d’Equipe Maria Ivanova and represented in the ring by Yulia Grigorieva and Elizaveta Samoylenko.

German competitors also dominated the Children's CDI Tour, and covered places one through four. The rider from Munich, Anotonia Gress on Desperados SV won with 73.944 % ahead of Maja Schnakenberg from Dörverden with Donna-Noblesse (73.611 %), Olivia Schmitz-Morkramer from Hamburg with Tropensonne (72.278 %), and Isabelle Rüdiger from Immenhausen with Laera R (70.778 %). 

German Pony Ladies Reign

On Friday evening the German Pony Riders filled out the quartet of Nations' Cup victories. Not unexpectedly, the triple European Champion in the pony division, Lucie-Anouk Baumgürtel from Nottuln with her Massimiliano FH, earned 76.752 %, and the win. Her team mates Jana Lang from Schmidgaden and Nele Löbbert from Witten, with NK Cyrill and Contra, followed close behind with 76.282 and 74.966 %, taking second and third place.

With those scores, no one could overtake the German team usually led by Chef d’Equipe Cornelia Endres, though today they were accompanied in Hagen by Caroline Roost. “We are very happy and proud of this great, secure performance”, summed up Roost following the win. The teams from Denmark and Great Britain secured themselves silver and bronze.
