Nadine Capellmann was very happy about the week. With Farbenfroh, the local favourite for the first time won the "Prize of Deutsche Bank AG - Grand Prix Dressage of Aachen".

With 0,26 points he had an flimsy edge before her permanent rival Ulla Salzgeber. Juge Dr. Volker Moritz said: "Maybe the better technical performance in the freestyle had been the decisive factor for Farbenfroh." Salzgeber coolly commentated: "That's how the sport is like."

After all, Salzgeber could take comfort with the award as "Dressage Champion Aachen 2002", which she won with an edge of a good two points in front of Nadine Capellmann from Aachen, who in turn had ensured herself the "Piaffe-Prize" for the dressage rider amazone with the highest score in the tournament, which is awarded by the Liselott Schindling-Foundation for the promotion of dressage sport.

Hubertus Schmidt was the male dressage rider with the highest score, this special trophy is awarded by Federal Chancellor Gerhard Schröder. Moreover, Schmidt won the freestyle competition "Prize of Juwelier Uttermann" with Wansuela suerte.
