The 5-year old Farbenfroh H and the 6-year old .. became the winners of the small Bundeschampionate qualifier held at the regional show in Hildesheim, Germany, on 3 - 4 May 2016. Although the Hildesheim show is not officially listed as a Bundeschampionate qualifier on the FN website, the score sheets do indicate the classes count for Warendorf qualification.
Eleven 5-year old horses lined up for the L-level dressage test and three achieved the qualification criterium of 8.0 or higher to make it to the 2016 Bundeschampionate, held annually the first week of September in Warendorf, Germany. Sandra Frieling and the Hanoverian bred Farbenfroh B (by Furst Nymphenburg II x Londonderry) topped the board with a very convincing 8.7, edging out Svenja Bachmann on Baumann's Apollon (by Ampere x Davignon), who placed second with 8.3.
The first 9.0 score of the season has been awarded to Katja Slupinski on Dr. Best, a German Sport Horse bred gelding by Dr. Jackson x Roy Black. The pair aced the 6-year old M-level division in a small field of seven competitors. Esther Maruhn and the mare Bellena (by Belissimo M x Welser) were a strong second with 8.5.
