The German sister-brother duo Jessica and Benjamin Werndl ruled the roost taking the two top places in the Grand Prix and Kur to Music.

Her brother Benjamin Werndl brought along his Grand Prix ride, the 11-year old Der Hit (by Del Gado x Welt Hit II). He finished second twice with 71.620% and 78.700%.
Kaposvar also hosted a Special tour, which only four pairs contested. Jessica von Bredow-Werndl was back on top on her developing Grand Prix horse Zaire, a 10-year old Dutch warmblood mare by Son de Niro x Jazz. They won the Grand Prix with 70.260% and the Special with 76.078%.
