The 5-year old and the 6-year old put themselves into the winner circle by being the high scorers of their age division in the Bundeschampionate qualification classes held at the 2015 Thuringian Regional Championships in Grabsleben, Germany, on 21 June 2015. With only fifteen horses in total in both age classes, the Grabsleben BuCha qualifier was a small one.
The 5-year old division was judged by Wolfgang Meier and Erik Schlaudraff and they placed Matthias Schneider first on the German Sport Horse Lutalo (by L'Ami x Levisto). The black stallion scored a seasonal best score of 8.8 to win the L-level dressage horse test. Kim Pfeiffer and the Hanoverian stallion Ferdinand (by Floriscount x Embassy) were second with another impressive score, 8.6.
The 6-year old class was judged by Uta Harlein and Wolfgang Meier and in the M-level dressage horse test Andrea Dlugos topped the leader board on her own Westfalian stallion Fuchs Peter (by For Compliment x Rubinstein). The pair scored 8.2 and edged out Ingo Menze on the Westfalian mare Filona (by Florianus x Weltmeyer), who finished second with 8.1.
