2017 Bundeschampionate Qualifier

The 5-year old Frau Holle and the 6-year old Santo Dottore OLD became the winners of the Bundeschampionate qualification classes held at the Baden-Wurttemberger regional event in Böblingen, Germany, on 12 - 14 May 2017. With only ten horses in total spread over two divisions, Böblingen was a small qualifier.

The 5-year old division only had five starters despite 14 entries and judges Horst Eulich, Heinrich Geigl and Bernhard Goldschmidt favoured Mirja Block on Dressage Pro's Westfalian mare Frau Holle (by Furstenball x Riccio). Bought at the 2015 Westfalian Autumn elite auction for 66,000 euro, Frau Holle scored 8.7 in total with 9 for trot, 8.5 for walk, 8 for canter and 9 for submission and general impression. Ines Knoll and the Bavarian bred Dumont (by Don Juan de Hus x Rotspon) were second with 8.0. The chestnut gelding got 8 for trot, 9 for walk, 8 for canter, 7 for submission and 8 for general impression. 

Judged by Horst Eulich, Bernhard Goldschmidt and Klaus Storbeck, the 6-year old division was quite small with only five competitors. Katrin Burger and the Oldenburg stallion Santo Dottore OLD (by Sir Donnerhall x Rubinstein) aced the class with a strong total of 8.5 points. The black stallion got 8 for trot, 8.5 for walk, 9 for canter, and 8.5 for submission and general impression. Nicole Casper and the home bred Topas (by Totilas x  Sandro Hit) were second with 8.0. The black stallion earned 8 for trot, 7 for walk, 8.5 for canter and submission and 8 for general impression.
